So why do some people falsely push the Secret Rapture?

`TREASURE

The  false secret  Rapture doctrine, which was generally the invention of the Plymouth Brethren led by John Nelson Darby (1800-1882), the idea that Jesus Christ will return for His true Church just before the beginning of the Great Tribulation in a secret gathering or “catching away” was an important part of Darby’s teaching and by  1860 the “rapture” had made its way to the United States. http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/12/22/the-plymouth-brethren/

So why do some people falsely push the secret Rapture?

.

Real Bible ignorance firstly.. They have not studied the New Testament prayerfully for themselves but mostly listen to the lies, distortions of others.

.

There are many people, pastors, so called leaders, who because of various reasons have never received the fullness of the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the second blessings , and thus they do not even know that they are out of touch with God and the holy Spirit.They are still carnal, use their own human reasons, understandings, or listen to other carnal persons to obtain their often still false, corrupted spiritual understandings True spiritual understanding is a direct revelation from the Holy Spirit, with whom they have no contact even. https://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/
.
It is ludicrous,. really absurd that some people will still falsely claim they are Experts  on the Holy Spirit, Baptism of the Holy Spirit, praying, speaking in toungues too, a personal  experience they still  have never even had..
.
The Baptism with the Holy Spirit is also referred to as, “the second blessing.”  where the baptism with the Holy Spirit is an additional experience that we must seek after we are saved, rather than the initial  one most people we receive with salvation. So in that case, the baptism with the Holy Spirit would be a SECOND BLESSING. Most real Pentecostal and Charismatic people do believe that the baptism with the Holy Spirit is a second blessing – one received in addition to salvation. They believe that you can be saved, and be indwelt by Christ — but that this is not ALL that God has for most us. You thus must go on to receive POWER, gifts, and an overflow. This, to them, is the baptism of the Holy Spirit, the so-called, “second blessing.” The reasons most people did not receive the Baptism with the Holy Spirit at Salvation was they were ignorant of it, they did not accept Jesus Christ fully as the sole Lord of their life at salvation. Their salvation  is more of an intellectual salvation not a fully experiential salvation.. If you still personally must receive a second blessing to receive ALL that God wants to give us, then you do NOT receive all when you receive Christ. Thus, this means that it is entirely possible to be saved but LACK everything that goes with this, “second blessing.”  Which most often is the case. https://anyonecare.wordpress.com/2013/12/23/disspensationalists-are-false-christians/

.

It seems strange to me that the Lord would not reveal, by the Holy Spirit, a teaching which the end-time prophets of today preach as a foundational dogma and a forgone conclusion. Not until 1831 was this “new truth” revealed and not until the 20th century was it popularized. How is it that the Apostles and the Early Fathers overlooked such an important eschatological event? Why is it not clearly spelled out in the Scriptures? The obvious answer is this: THE DOCTRINE KNOWN AS THE PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE OF THE CHURCH DOES NOT EXIST! Like all other heresies it was and is the invention of men, not the teaching of the Church. Rather than listen to the doctrines of men, let us pay extremely close attention to our Lord’s own words in the Gospels.  When Jesus taught His Apostles about His glorious 2nd coming, these are the words He used: “For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall the coming of the Son of Man be (Matthew 24:27)”. In the book of Acts, St. Luke tells us that when Jesus ascended into heaven, and the Apostles were gazing upward as the Lord rose among the clouds, two men in white apparel (presumed to be angels) said these words: “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven (Acts 1:11)”. We are told here in Holy Scripture that exactly in the same way Jesus ascended into heaven He will return to earth. In other words, He will return in the clouds in the sky. That description doesn’t sound like a “secret catching away” but rather a dynamic 2nd coming!  To be sure, there will be a catching away of the saints on earth but this happens at the last trumpet sound (Revelation 11:15). Writing to the Christians in Thessalonica, St. Paul tells us what the 2nd coming (Greek- parousia) is like. “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore, comfort one another with these words (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18)”. The same words are used here to describe the catching up of Christians as is used to describe the 2nd coming of the Lord. Both occur in the clouds, in the air, and everyone on earth sees it happen. In other words, the so-called Rapture and the 2nd coming of Christ will happen at the same time.
.
Perhaps the most vivid picture of our Lord’s 2nd coming to earth is found in the words of St. John the Apostle. In the book of Revelation he writes: “Behold, He cometh with clouds and every eye shall see Him, and they also which pierced Him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of Him. Even so, amen (Revelation 1:7)”. Far from believing that the Lord will return “secretly” to rapture the Church 7 years before His 2nd coming, St. John says that every human being on earth will see the Lord descend from the clouds. Once again, here are the words of the Nicene Creed, the symbol and statement of faith for all Christians: “He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead and His kindgom shall have no end.” The 2nd coming of our Lord Jesus Christ shall be in glory, not in secret. Then the Prince of Peace shall establish true peace, joy, and righteousness on the earth; “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, as the waters cover the sea (Habakkuk 2:14)”.

Most dispensationalists still do   take isolated verse and twist them to suit what they want others to believe still especially the false Dispensationalists http://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2013/07/02/most-people-do-take-isolated-verse-and-twist-them/

.

Dispensationalism is basically false and it is the  method of interpreting the scriptures that sees two distinct peoples of God, with two distinct destinies of  Israel and the Church. It also unacceptably tries falsely to explain away  the relevance of the gifts of the holy spirit today.  It is not a coincident that too many  Dispensationalists do also oppose the work of the   HOLY SPIRIT today as well, HIS Charismatic GIFTS NOW TOO.  Evangelical Dispensationalists do also still tend to be trying to earn a great spot in heaven by their own good works, saving others, following the teaching of men, an evil spirit, and not the Holy Spirit rather.. http://comeholyspirit.wordpress.com/2008/11/19/the-false-demotion-of-the-holy-spirt-jesus/

.

(Isa 30:1 KJV) Woe to the rebellious children, saith the LORD, that take counsel, but not of me; and that cover with a covering, but not of my spirit, that they may add sin to sin:

.

I am   aware of the fact John Darby and Cyrus Scofield have led many saints into such a mess, that it’s become the tool for a Brethren cult too! Some persons do preach, write out of their guilty, to compensate for the related emptiness they are feeling, while others write because they are ambitious, they write out of seeking fame, their seeking a place of prominence.. many are just lead by the devil too.

.

The Second Advent of our Messiah Jesus Christ is in fact Biblically sound Doctrine, it will happen!  However, the Rapture theory fabricates a pre-Second Advent advent, which is not in the Bible. In essence, what they have done is that they have made three advents out of the true two Advents of Jesus Christ as found in among other places, {Zech 9:9+10}.  It is a falsehood created by man and added to God’s Word.  In this Bible study we will thoroughly debunk the Rapture lie and explain not only it’s dubious origins, but also it’s cause and effect, and the extreme danger that such a false doctrine poses for God’s children. The rapture, often called “the blessed hope,” is sadly more hoax than hope,  For such a seemingly major doctrine, one might expect a weighty argument, but this is what is offered in The Scofield Bible’s Reference Notes (1917 Edition): “…’caught up’—Not church saints only, but all bodies of the saved [that is, not only the living, but also the dead], of whatever dispensation, are included in the first resurrection… [It] is peculiarly the ‘blessed hope’ of the Church (cf)  This offers surprisingly little information, considering how many accept the rapture doctrine based upon these notes. Additionally, all of the references he cited are about Christ’s return and the believer’s need to be ready for that event. None of them speak of a “near return” by Christ to snatch away believers.

.

Some rapturists today cite Acts 8:39And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.   saying it uses the same Greek word that is translated “caught up” in 1 Thessalonians 4:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.   They say that the fact the Spirit of God “caught [Philip] away” shows that 1 Thessalonians 4:17Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. means that the saints are caught away to heaven. Yet the Spirit did not transport Philip to heaven, but rather from one place on the earth to another.

.

The Rapture ‘doctors’ (those who create, fabricate, and perpetuate the many different Rapture theories) have searched the Bible over and have found a finite number of Scriptures that they were able to pull violently out of context, twist and mould, reshape and join unnaturally one to the other until they have formed a new product, a new doctrine, seemingly supported by Biblical Scripture, but in reality nothing more than satan’s ‘house of cards,’ built on a foundation of sand, a perversion of God’s true end-time plan.   Any claim of any verse verses  being  about snatched away to heaven takes incredible license, distortions  with the Bible.

.

The Rapture doctrine is dangerous because it teaches Christians that they will be spared all tribulation, wrath, and danger in the last days. The need for urgent preparation of one’s heart and soul is diminished because Christians will be secretly taken away from all that pain. No need to worry, we’ll just fly away. Unlike the Early Christians, most of whom were murdered by this world’s authorities, the end-time Christians have a get-out-of-tribulation free card called the Rapture. Remember the words of St. Paul, “All those who live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution (2 Timothy 2:12).” And lastly, the words of the Lord in John 16:33, “These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me you might have peace. In the world you shall have tribulation, but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

Hal Lindsey the typical evangelical hireling, a self-proclaimed “Father of the Modern Day False Prophecy Movement,” popularized the false eschatology doctrines of most dispensationalists. His books have influenced thousands of preachers, teachers and laymen leading them astray in the subject of eschatology. Hal has also been a leader in coercing believers into supporting a false religion (Babylonian Talmudic Judaism), and a nation (Israel) that oppresses nearly half of its citizens (Palestinians). Like most men who have acquired great wealth, prestige and influence he has spent a good deal of time chasing women. His third wife and church gave him the boot for his sexcapades.  For detailed proof of his false prophecies and teachings go to — haLUNACY

.

All they care about is inspiring people to idolize Israel and the almighty Jews. Is your church stupid? It is if you support Israel. You are IGNORANT of the Scriptures my friend if you think God blesses Christians who support a wicked, Christ-rejecting people. The idolizing and worshipping of Jerusalem, Israel and the Jews is evil in the sight of God.   http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/False%20Doctrines/Zionism/israel_idolatry.htm

Are you a Watchtower slave?

jesus-christ 3

The people who call themselves Pastors, preachers, evangelists, theologians are still mostly now no different to the people who call themselves mechanics if they have not been called directly by God to the Ministry.. Their carnal base line on how they interpret things is influenced by their predisposition, bias and personal views – they are just average carnal people. How the so called Christians have now interpreted the Bibles on the subject of future prophecies, Eternity, Heaven, Hell, Eternal security, Rapture, Zionism, jews, Cessation, slavery, status of women, power, money, righteousness, sexuality, marriage etc., has often still moved from one end of the band width to the other. A real absurdity. At every point on that bandwidth over the past 2000 years, there would have been a theologian with absolute conviction dictating his views as absolutely right , but yet today next many are horrified by some of their false thinking. History would tell us that we all now don’t always get it right and that we all still should temper our convictions and elevate our sense of humility.So if you are wondering where I stand with my faith after reading this… well, it is strong, It is Holy Spirit based – but you should stop worrying about me and worry about the false professing Christians who love to lie, slander, abuse others to judge and disrupt the honest life Jesus called us all to.

Is the Jehovah’s Witness religion Christian?   The answer to the question is, “No”.

.

Like all non-Christian cults, the Jehovah’s Witness organization distorts the essential doctrines of Christianity. It denies the deity of Christ, His physical resurrection, and salvation by grace.  This alone makes it non-Christian.  To support its erring doctrines, the Watchtower organization (which is the author and teacher of all official Jehovah’s Witness theology), has even altered the Bible to make it agree with its changing and non-Christian teachings.. 
.
  The NWT translates Jn 1:1 as “… and the Word was WITH God, and the Word was a god”. How can the Word (Jesus) be “a god” if God says in Deut 32:39, “See now that I-I am he, and there are NO gods together WITH me …”? If the name “Jehovah” is so important, then why does Acts 4:12 say, “There is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name [v10 Jesus Christ] under heaven that has been given among men, by which we must be saved”? Would this not have been the logical place for God to have used the name “YHWH”? Col 1:16, in talking about Jesus, says that “… All [other] things have been created through him and FOR HIM”. If Jesus was Michael the Archangel at the time of creation, would an angel have created all things for himself? Isa 43:7 says God created “everyone … for my OWN glory…”. Interesting fact that “the Jehovah’s Witnesses organization lost roughly three-quarters of the movement between 1925 and 1928, then suffered huge losses after 1975, when the end didn’t come as they had implied over and over again,” said Jim Penton, an ex-Witness who writes entries on Jehovah’s Witnesses for the Encyclopedia Americana. . What kind of confidence can anyone have in an organization that rejected its founder and first two presidents for the first 63 years of its existence? This represents about 53% of the time they have existed! Since the Jehovah’s Witness organization currently rejects most of the teachings of its founder Charles Taze Russell (who was president of the organization from 1879-1916), and since they also reject “Judge” Joseph Franklin Rutherford, who succeeded Russell as president from 1916 – 1942, how can we be sure that in 25 more years, Jehovah’s Witnesses won’t also reject the current president, Milton G. Henschel (1992 – present), as they did Russell and Rutherford? http://www.bible.ca/jw-questions.htm

.

Jehovah’s witnesses are very strongly cultic in both doctrine and behaviour, thus fitting both categories of false doctrine and mind control. 

What they won’t tell you:

They believe that all true Christian churches are of the devil.

They believe Jesus is not God, but is the Archangel Michael – the first being created by God.

They deny that God is a Trinity.

They believe Jesus died on a stake, rather than a cross.

They deny that Jesus rose bodily from the dead.

They believe that ony 144,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses will go to heaven. The rest will live forever in a paradise on Earth, never meeting the person who died for them – Jesus Christ.

They believe that salvation is impossible outside of the Watchtower.

They are not allowed to question the Watchtower leadership or teaching.

They claim you need to read the Watchtower’s magazines and other material in order to understand the Bible correctly. If you don’t read the Watchtower’s books, you will “fall into darkness” – what they call reverting to normal Christianity.

They have falsely predicted the end of the world five times.

They have just changed a major Watchtower prediction that the end of the world would come before the generation of Witnesses born before 1914 died.

They used to forbid any vaccinations or organ transplants, even to save lives.

They are not allowed to have blood transfusions, even to save a child’s life. http://www.cultwatch.com/jw.html

Jesus Christ was named in greek and not in Hebrew firstly.. the original New testament was also Greek.. Jews at the time of the Romans spoke in greek and not in Hebrew.. the Old testament read in the synagogue at the time of Jesus Christ was in greek and not in Hebrew.. so where does this Hebrew YESHUA come from if they both are not mentioned in the original New testament, which was written in greek.. from the moth of liars…this is the gospel of incantation. A form of salvation by reciting the appropriate magic formula. In other words, WITCHCRAFT. And to compound the error and make it into SIN which leads to DEATH… they pass judgment on all who will not repeat their magic name. 1. “There is no other name given under heaven amongst men by which we must be saved”

 2. Jesus is the name of the Messiah in English, this we know for certain. Y’shua is a Hebrew equivalent as is Yoshua… but YAHShua? Never heard if him… it is neither English nor Greek nor even Hebrew, it is an invention of Americans who came out of sect of the Christian Church… a sect that rejects the very religion it came from as being pagan.

 3. Paul preached the unknown G-d and never once during that sermon mentioned the name of G-d, how was anyone saved?

 4. You do not know the name of the redeemer so by your own doctrine you are condemned

 5. You do not know the person of the redeemer because you practice unrighteous judgment based on your own false understanding of the name of G-d therefore according to the Living Torah as given by Y’shua himself, you are a stone white sepulcher full of dead men’s bones.

 Repent of your sins and come to Messiah… learn of the person through his Word (Davar) and his Ruach (Spirit) and you shall receive the FREE GIFT of real Salvation.

 Titus 1:14. Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth. The only way anyone can know the up-to-date truths, commands and practices from God is to carefully read/study the entire New Testament for themselves. (Don’t just trust another person to teach you the New Testament. Read it yourself and change accordingly.) Thus, the HEBREW NAME MOVEMENT must necessarily cast doubt upon the record of the preservation of the New Testament scriptures by lying asserting that the New Testament was also originally written in Hebrew. It was not it was written in Greek..

Ridiculous KJV Bible Corrections: Who is Yahweh? by John Hinton, Ph.D. jhinton@post.harvard.edu
.
  Ex 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.
  Ps 83:18 That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth….
  Isa 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.
  Isa 26:4 Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:
  The above quoted verses are the four verses where the name of God is pronounced in the KJV (as well as the ASV, and a few other English versions).
.
  There is a VERY FALSE popular movement to replace the name of God, Jehovah, with the name Yahweh. This is being pushed especially hard among those in the Identity and Christian patriot movements, and especially among the alternative news community prominent on the shortwave, which some Christians perceive of as being a source of more purer form of broadcasted Christianity. There are exceptions, but overall this is nonsense because the shortwave Christian broadcasts are frequently every bit as commercialized (just different products) and apostate as the “Christianity” that is broadcasted on TV.
  Eph 2:2 Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:  This movement to alter God’s name with absolutely nothing that resembles scriptural, textual, or linguistic support, has misled huge numbers of Christians into denying the Bible and accepting the work of Bible-scoffing atheists who have dominated the academic field of biblical studies since the mid-nineteenth century. I even hear people who claim to be King James Bible supporters use this perversion of the name of God. If they deny what the KJV says about the name of God, then they do not believe the KJV is God’s word. In fact, they do not believe that the Hebrew Old Testament is God’s word either, because it clearly says Yehovah, which becomes Jehovah in English pronunciation, and pronounced He’ova in Spanish. If one can change that word simply on a whim, which is all the Yahweh spelling is, then they can deny the spelling of absolutely any other word in the entire Hebrew Bible. http://av1611.com/kjbp/ridiculous-kjv-bible-corrections/Yahweh-Jehova-YHVH.html

ABOUT THE DIVINE NAMES AND TITLES OF GOD.

  I. ELOHIM occurs 2.700 times. Its first occurrence connects it with creation, and give it its essential meaning as the Creator. It indicates His relation to mankind as His creatures (see note on 2Chron. 18:31, where it stands in contrast with Jehovah as indicating covenant relationship). ‘Elohim is God the Son, the living “WORD” with creature form to create (John 1:1. Col. 1:15-17. Rev. 3:14); and later, with human form to redeem (John 1:14). “Begotten of His Father before all worlds; born of His mother, in the world.” In this creature form He appeared to the Patriarchs, a form not temporarily assumed. ‘Elohim is indicated (as in A.V.) by ordinary small type, “God”. See table on page 7.

  II. JEHOVAH. While Elohim is God as the Creator of all things, Jehovah is the same God in covenant relation to those whom He has created (Cp. 2Chron. 18:31). Jehovah means the Eternal, the Immutable One, He Who WAS, and IS, and IS TO COME. The Divine definition is given in Gen. 21:33. He is especially, therefore, the God of Israel; and the God of those who are redeemed, and are thus now “in Christ”. We can say “My God,” but not “My Jehovah”, for Jehovah is “MY God.”
  Jehovah is indicated (as in A.V.) by small capital letters, “LORD”‘ and by “GOD” when it occurs in combination with Adonai, in which case LORD GOD = Adonai Jehovah.

  The name Jehovah is combined with ten other words, which form what are known as “the Jehovah Titles.” in the Hebrew Canon (Ap. 1). All are noted in the margin, in all their occurrences:
  1. JEHOVAH-JIREH = Jehovah will see, or provide. Gen. 22:14.
  2. JEHOVAH-ROPHEKA = Jehovah that healeth thee. Ex. 15:26.
  3. JEHOVAH-NISSI = Jehovah my banner. Ex. 17:15.
  4. JEHOVAH-MeKADDISHKEM = Jehovah that doth sanctify you. Ex. 31:13. Lev. 20:8; 21:8; 22:32. Ezek. 20:12.
  5. JEHOVAH-SHALOM = Jehovah [send] peace. Judg. 6:24.
  6. JEHOVAH-ZeBA’OTH = Jehovah of hosts. 1Sam. 1:3, and frequently.
  7. JEHOVAH-ZIDKENU = Jehovah our righteousness. Jer. 23:6; 3:16.
  8. JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH = Jehovah is there. Ezek. 48:35.
  9. JEHOVAH-ELYON = Jehovah most high. Ps. 7:17; 47:2; 97:9.
  10. JEHOVAH-RO’I = Jehovah my Shepherd. Ps. 23:1.

  We have seven of these, experimentally referred to, in Ps. 23, inasmuch as Jehovah, the “Good,” “Great,” and “Chief Shepherd,” is engaged, in all the perfection of His attributes, on behalf of His sheep:
  In verse 1, we have No. 1 above.
  In verse 2, we have No. 5.
  In verse 3, we have Nos. 2 and 7.
  In verse 4, we have No. 8.
  In verse 5, we have Nos. 3 and 4.

  III. JAH is Jehovah in a special sense and relation. Jehovah as having BECOME our Salvation (first occ. Ex. 15:2), He Who IS, and WAS, and IS TO COME. It occurs 49 times (7 x 7. See Ap. 10). Jah is indicated by type thus: Lord.

  IV. EL is essentially the Almighty, thought the word is never so rendered (see below, “Shaddai”). EL is Elohim in all His strength and power. It is rendered “God” as Elohim is, but El is God the Omnipotent. Elohim is God the Creator putting His omnipotence into operation. Eloah (see below) is God Who wills and orders all, and Who is to be the one object of the worship of His people. El is the God Who knows all (first occ. Gen. 14:18:22) and sees all (Gen. 16:13) and that performeth all things for His people (Ps. 57:2); and in Whom all the Divine attributes are concentrated.

  El is indicated in this edition by type in large capital letters, thus: “GOD.” It is sometimes transliterated in proper names Immanue-‘el, Beth-‘el, &c., where it is translated, as explained in the margin.

  V. ELOAH is Elohim, Who is to be worshipped. Eloah is God in connection with His Will rather than His power. The first occurrence associates this name with worship (Deut. 32:15, 17). Hence it is the title used whenever the contrast (latent or expressed) is with false gods or idols. Eloah is essentially “the living God” in contrast to inanimate idols.

  Eloah is rendered “God”, but we have indicated it by type thus: GOD.

  VI. ELYON first occurs in Gen. 14:18 with El, and is rendered “the most high (God)”. It is El and Elohim, not as the powerful Creator, but as “the possessor of heaven and earth.” Hence the name is associated with Christ as the Son of “the Highest” (Luke 1:35).
  It is Elyon, as possessor of the earth, Who divides the nations “their inheritance”. In Ps. 83:18, He is “over all the earth”. The title occurs 36 times (6 x 6 or 62 See Ap. 10).
  Elyon is the Dispenser of God’s blessings in the earth; the blessings proceeding from a Priest Who is a King upon His throne (cp. Gen. 14:18-22 with Zech. 6:13; 14:9).

  VII. SHADDAI is in every instance translated “Almighty”, and is indicated by small capital letters (“ALMIGHTY”). It is God (El), not as the source of strength, but of grace; not as Creator, but as the Giver. Shaddai is the All-bountiful. This title does not refer to His creative power, but to His power to supply all the needs of His people. Its first occurrence is in Gen. 17:1, and is used to show Abraham that He Who called him out to walk alone before Him could supply all his need. Even so it is the title used in 2Cor. 6:18, where we are called to “come out” in separation from the world. It is always used in connection with El (see above).

  VIII. ADON is one of the three titles (ADON, ADONAI, and ADONIM), all generally rendered “Lord”; but each has its own peculiar usage and association. They all denote headship in various aspects. They have to do with God as “over-lord.”

  (1) ADON is the Lord as Ruler in the earth. We have indicated this in type by printing the preceding article or pronouns in small capitals, not because either are to be emphasized, but to distinguish the word “Lord” from Adonai, which is always so printed in the A.V.

  (2) ADONAI is the Lord in His relation to the earth; and as carrying out His purposes of blessing in the earth. With this limitation it is almost equivalent to Jehovah. Indeed, it was from an early date so used, by associating the vowel points of the word Jehovah with Adon, thus converting Adon into Adonai. A list of 134 passages where this was deliberately done is preserved and given in the Massorah (107-115). (See Ap. 32) We have indicated these by printing the word like Jehovah, putting an asterisk, thus: LORD*.

  (3) ADONIM is the plural of Adon, never used of man. Adonim carries with it all that Adon does, but in a greater and higher degree; and more especially as owner and proprietor. An Adon may rule others who do not belong to him. Hence (without the article) it is often used of men. But Adonim is the Lord Who rules His own. We have indicated it by type, thus: LORD.
  The three may be thus briefly distinguished:
  Adon is the Lord as overlord or ruler.
  Adonim is the Lord as owner.

As for Jesus Christ Hebrews 1 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
13 But to which of the angels said he at any times, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?

2 Peter 2:4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; Jude 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Revelation 12 :9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Revelation 7 :11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,

JW leadership claims its victims by asserting itself to be the sole Christian religion and authority on the earth today, as well as God’s mouthpiece or prophet. The Watchtower further disrupts families through its harsh and unbiblical interpretation of “disfellowshipping” and the practice of “shunning.” Family members who are former JWs are labeled by Watchtower adherents as “apostates” and prevented from even social contact. Disfellowshipped or disassociated children, parents, and grandparents are kept from any type of communication with active members of the organization. Divorces are common within the sect when one member becomes disillusioned with Watchtower teaching and mind-control.   http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/Cults/jw.htm

When misinformed people think of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the first thing that comes to mind are clean cut people knocking on doors wanting to start Bible studies. Sadly, this surface image is masterfully created by their leaders to conceal the dangerous and destructive aspects of this bona fide religious cult. Religious cults are groups of people involved with unorthodox practices that are disguised as Christianity. Like Jehovah’s Witnesses, cult members belong to an elite structure (organization) dictated by leaders (faithful and discreet slave) who profess to be the only ones communicating through God – See more at: http://www.sixscreensofthewatchtower.com/critical-info/cult.php#sthash.eaCky0ft.dpuf

Christian sect the Jehovah’s Witnesses – with 64,000 active ‘disciples’ in Australia – are a cruel religion with no soul, according to Melbourne cultbuster Raphael Aron. Read more: http://www.theage.com.au/national/jehovahs-witnesses-a-cruel-cult-20130315-2g5x3.html

Two methods have traditionally been employed in attempting to free Jehovah’s Witnesses    from bondage to the Watchtower organization. They are:

* Discussing key Bible texts so as to reveal how the Watchtower has mistranslated or    misinterpreted them.

* Exposing the past and present inconsistencies of the Watchtower in terms of their    false prophecies, changes in doctrine, cover ups, etc.   http://www.freeminds.org/psych/mindcont.htm

  David fulfills Abraham’s land promise (again) King David in Jerusalem 33 years (997-995 BC: 37-39 years old) 2 Samuel 8-12; 1 Chron 18-20 “I will also appoint a place for My people Israel and will plant them, that they may live in their own place and not be disturbed again, nor will the wicked afflict them any more as formerly, even from the day that I commanded judges to be over My people Israel; and I will give you rest from all your enemies. The LORD also declares to you that the LORD will make a house for you. “When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom. “He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.” (2 Samuel 7:10–13) Abrahamic Land Promise to Israel fulfilled 3000 years ago! Israel becoming a nation in 1948 does not fulfill Bible prophecy! There is no future Biblical promise of Israel returning to their land and possessing it:
.
  A. Premillennialists, dispensationalists and rapturists, all discard the clear Bible passages that Israel physically got all the land promised to them:
.
  1. “God unconditionally promised Abraham’s descendants a literal world-wide kingdom over which they would rule through their Messiah who would reign upon King David’s throne…Even the animals and reptiles will lose their ferocity and no longer be carnivorous,” (The Late Great Planet Earth, Hal Lindsay, p 165) False, God never promised any land outside Israel. Abraham was only promised the land between the River of Egypt (Wadi el-Arish) and the Euphrates.
.
  2. “The nature of the blessings are earthly, territorial, and national, and have nothing to do with a spiritual church to which none of these blessings has been promised …Christ is not now on the throne of David bringing blessings to Israel as the prophets predicted, but He is rather on His Father’s throne waiting for the coming earthly kingdom and interceding for His own who form the church,” (The Millennial Kingdom: A Basic Text in Premillennial Theology, John F. Walvoord, p 205, 1983 AD) False: Abraham was only promised the land of Israel.
.
  3. “The foundation of the state of Israel in recent years has been a part of the predicted regathering of scattered Israel back to their ancient land…The present partial possession of the land is a token. The complete possession awaits the coming of Israel’s Redeemer” (The Millennial Kingdom: A Basic Text in Premillennial Theology, John F. Walvoord, p 185, 1983 AD) False: the land promise was fulfilled in 1400 BC.
.
  B. The Bible clearly states that Israel occupied all the land promised through Abraham from the time of Joshua in 1400 BC. Additionally, Saul, David, Solomon and even Jeroboam II all controlled and occupied the entire Promised Land. http://www.bible.ca/archeology/bible-archeology-maps-timeline-chronology-2samuel8-1chronicles18-david-fulfills-abrahams-land-promise-997-995bc.htm

Jesus tells us “Beware of the scribes…” and in 1 Corinthians 1:19-20 “It is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”   http://witnessed.wordpress.com/2013/12/22/the-plymouth-brethren/
