"Every branch in me that beareth not fruit he taketh away: and every branch that
beareth fruit, he purgeth it, that it may bring forth more fruit."
"And that which fell among thorns are they, which, when they have heard, go forth,
and are choked with cares and riches and pleasures of this life, and bring no fruit to perfection."
"Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree brings forth evil fruit."
Bearing good fruit means continual growth in faith, purity and good works wrought by God in you
through obedience unto His commandment's and precept's taught in the Holy Bible.
Good fruit is goodness.
That same goodness is the salt spoken of in Matthew chapter 5 verse 13.
"Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be
salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men."
When we are new to the faith we are very much still in the world, through the purification
of the Holy Spirit and guidance of scripture we must be "weaned" so to speak from the things of
the world. We must set our minds on doing God's will and not our own.
1 John 2:15-17
"15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world,
the love of the Father is not in him.
16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the
pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
17 And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever."
Some examples/suggestions of bearing good fruit:
alms giving, growing in understanding of scripture, growing in faith/confidence in God
because you are growing closer to Him by doing His will more and more,
doing things less to please yourself and more to please others, reading the word of God more,
purifying yourself by strict obedience unto God, preaching the gospel and truth of this world,
exhorting your brothers and sisters (in lowliness and not confrontational or contentious) to further
good works and understanding of the word and will of God, giving to those who ask
If any of you desire to spread the truth of Jesus Christ and the Holy Bible and bear good fruit
in that way, you can post comments on forums & videos, you can share videos like the one I made on
the homepage of this website to do that very thing, you can make your own online ministry and
share all that God teaches you as you see I have here, you can even spray paint your ministry website
on every side of your vehicle if you're so bold, you can even go to the corrupted & lukewarm churches and
handout pages like the one I made for doing that very thing (The Last Call)
to exhort the lukewarm and hypocritical.
We should all be trying to please God in all that we do, every day.
So I ask you all, are you living for God and His will, bearing good fruit for Him, or are you
living for the yourself?
"13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to
destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few
there be that find it."
Matthew 25:30 KJB
"And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."

from genuine Christians and truth seekers.
The Bible Code and other Superstitious Teachings
Those that have been around online Christian communities long enough are bound to encounter
the Bible Code (also called the Torah Code) deception eventually. The claim is that there
is a hidden code within the Hebrew text of the Torah. I am %100 convinced that this is false.
I have not even thoroughly looked into the Bible Codes, only looked upon the surface, yet I am
%100 convinced by seeing the fruits of the work of those that use these "codes".
"For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit..."
I see false teachings contrary to sound doctrine arise from these "codes", which I
believe to be completely superstitious and a deception only brought forth by the use of technology
in these last minutes (years) of the world.
1 John 2:27
"But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man
teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth,
and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him."
1 Corinthians 14:33
"For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints."
2 Peter 1:20
"Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation."
Also I urge you to beware any doctrines that you cannot prove yourself in the holy word of God, the Bible.
Doctrines such as claim to be "spiritually discerned" as if only some few can know the truth.
The word of God is for all, yes there are deeper understandings you can learn with patient study of scripture.
Yes there is scripture that is symbolic. But there is no scripture that only a few can understand.
These are wolves, trying to lead you astray, trying to make you believe that they have the Spirit of God and
and you don't.
A Random Gleaning #1
I have been doing a little bit of reading in early Christian non-canonical books that
I do not consider to be the inspired word of God. Nonetheless there are still bits of
historical and moral lessons that can help one grow in understanding.
Though if there be anything contrary to the sound doctrine of the word of God, which there are
pieces in these books that are contrary, which is why they were not even considered for canon, it should not
be acknowledged. Please if you read non-canon books discern what is sound doctrine and not. A lot
of these books are filled with gnostic type ideas. Be careful if you read them yourself.
I have been a bit anxious and lacking in my confidence and trust in God lately for no reason other
than that I see the end drawing nigh and I fear God and Hell and know that Judgement Day is just around the corner.
These words from Hermas made me think on the matter and realize that I have nothing to be of a doubtful mind for and should
have full confidence in God if I am doing everything He has shown me He wants me to be doing. Take from it what you will.
He saith to me; "Remove from thyself a doubtful mind and doubt not at all whether to ask of God,
saying within thyself, "How can I ask thing of the Lord and receive it,
seeing that I have committed so many sins against Him?"
Reason not thus, but turn to the Lord with thy whole heart, and ask of Him nothing wavering,
and thou shalt know His exceeding compassion, that He will surely not
abandon thee, but will fulfill the petition of thy soul.
For God is not as men who bear a grudge, but Himself is without malice and hath compassion on His creatures.
Do thou therefore cleanse thy heart from all the vanities of this life, and from the
things mentioned before; and ask of the Lord, and thou shalt receive all things, and shalt
lack nothing of all thy petitions, if thou ask of the Lord nothing wavering.
But if thou waver in thy heart, thou shalt surely receive none of thy petitions.
For they that waver towards God, these are the doubtful-minded,
and they never obtain any of their petitions.
But they that are complete in the faith make all their petitions trusting in the Lord, and they
receive, because they ask without wavering, nothing doubting; for every
doubtful-minded man, if he repent not, shall hardly be saved.
Cleanse therefore thy heart from doubtful-mindedness, and put on faith, for it is strong,
and trust God that thou wilt receive all thy petitions which thou askest; and if after
asking anything of the Lord, thou receive thy petition somewhat tardily, be not of
doubtful mind because thou didst not receive the petition of thy soul at once. For assuredly
it is by reason of some temptation or some transgression, of
which thou art ignorant, that thou receivest thy petition so tardily.
Do thou therefore cease not to make thy soul's petition, and thou shalt receive it. But if
thou grow weary, and doubt as thou askest, blame thyself and not Him that giveth unto thee.
See to this doubtful-mindedness; for it is evil and senseless, and uprooteth many from the faith,
yea, even very faithful and strong men. For indeed this doubtful-mindedness is a
daughter of the devil, and worketh great wickedness against the servants of God.
Therefore despise doubtful-mindedness and gain the mastery over it in everything,
clothing thyself with faith which is strong and powerful. For faith promiseth
all things, accomplisheth all things; but doubtful-mindedness, as having no
confidence in itself, fails in all the works which it doeth.
Thou seest then," saith he, "that faith is from above from the Lord, and hath great
power; but doubtful-mindedness is an earthly spirit from the devil, and hath no power.
Do thou therefore serve that faith which hath power, and hold aloof from
the doubtful-mindedness which hath no power; and
thou shalt live unto God; yea, and all those shall live unto God who are so minded."
The Books of the Apocrypha
The books of the apocrypha include the following:
Ecclesiasticus (aka Sirach)
Epistle of Jeremy
Song of the Three Children
Story of Susanna
The Idol Bel and the Dragon
Prayer of Manasses
"Many critics of the King James Bible like to point out that the original 1611 King James had the Apocrypha
in it as though that fact compromises its integrity. But several things must be examined to get
the factual picture. First, in the days in which our Bible was translated, the Apocrypha was accepted
reading based on its historical value, though not accepted as Scripture by anyone outside of the Catholic church.
The King James translators therefore placed it between the Old and New Testaments for its
historical benefit to its readers. They did not integrate it into the Old Testament text as do the
corrupt Alexandrian manuscripts."
That they rejected the Apocrypha as divine is very obvious by the seven reasons which
they gave for not incorporating it into the text. They are as follows:
1. Not one of them is in the Hebrew language, which was alone used by the inspired historians and poets of the Old Testament.
2. Not one of the writers lays any claim to inspiration.
3. These books were never acknowledged as sacred Scriptures by the Jewish Church, and therefore were never sanctioned by our Lord.
4. They were not allowed a place among the sacred books, during the first four centuries of the Christian Church.
5. They contain fabulous statements, and statements which contradict not only the canonical Scriptures,
but themselves; as when, in the two Books of Maccabees, Antiochus Epiphanes
is made to die three different deaths in as many different places.
6. It inculcates doctrines at variance with the Bible, such as prayers for the dead and sinless perfection.
7. It teaches immoral practices, such as lying, suicide, assassination and magical incantation.
Not to say there is nothing to be learned from these books.
But they are not to be regarded as the inspired words of God.
Mark of the Beast
The mark of the beast comes from Revelation 13:16-17
"16 And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
17 And that no man might buy or sell"
To get a better picture of what the mark of the beast truly is, please read commentaries from some
of the great theologians of centuries past that I've come to trust such as Ellicott, Barnes and Meyers.
Their commentaries on the above verses can all be found on the same BibleHub page here.
The Two Witnesses
"And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand
two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth."
So who or what are these two witnesses?
The two witnesses are not two literal people, but just as the rest of the book of Revelation is
full of symbolism and figurative language, so is this passage. These two witnesses, these two
candlesticks and olive trees have multiple interpretations as to what they could represent.
1) The Old and New Testaments "ministering their testimony the to the Church of the old dispensation,
as well as to that of the new".
2) God's ministers/priests throughout the ages.
3) Possibly other interpretations which can be found here.
But it is certain to me and the great theologians of centuries past (their commentaries can be found on the above link)
that these two witnesses are not two literal human prophets as some of the ministers of Satan
would have you believe with their many false doctrines they preach.
Seven Year Tribulation
The verses that people refer to and try to make a point that there will be some end time 7 year tribulation
period is in Daniel 9:24-27
"Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and
to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting
righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy. Know therefore
and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem
unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built
again, and the wall, even in troublous times. And after threescore and two weeks shall
Messiah be cut off, but not for himself: and the people of the prince that shall come shall
destroy the city and the sanctuary; and the end thereof shall be with a flood, and unto the end of
the war desolations are determined. And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in
the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the
overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the
consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate."
I do not believe there will be an end time "great tribulation" neither do I believe there will be an end
time "7 year tribulation".
For more information please study what some of the great theologians of centuries past (that I've come to trust) such as
Ellicott, Barnes and Meyers have to comment on these scriptures of Daniel (and any other verse in the Holy Bible)
which can be found on the BibleHub website here here.
I do not believe there will be a literal physical third temple that will be built.
The third temple doctrine comes from 2 Thessalonians 2:4.
"Who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so
that he as God sits in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God."
Here is commentary from Ellicott on 2 Thessalonians 2:4.
"Though the image is drawn from the Jewish temple, we may say with some confidence that
St. Paul did not expect the Antichrist as a prose fact to take his seat in that edifice.
Neither is the metaphor to be pressed into a mere synonym of "the Church" (1Corinthians 3:17).
The words, so far need not necessarily mean that the Man of Sin will make special
claims upon the Christian community as such. Rather, the whole phrase, "taking his seat in the
temple of God," is a poetical or prophetical description of usurping divine prerogatives
generally: not the prerogatives of the true God alone, but whatever prerogatives have been offered
to anything "called God." Though the prophecy might be fulfilled without any symbolical
act (e.g., of assuming any material throne), yet the spontaneousness ("himself") and the openness
("showing himself") seem so essentially parts of the prophecy as of necessity to imply that the
Man of Sin will make formal claim to occupy that central seat in men's minds and aspirations
which is acknowledged to be due to God alone. The formal making of this claim seems to be identical
with the apocalypse of the Man of Sin, the act by which he is manifested or revealed."
What exactly is coming I can only speculate but I do know a few things that can possibly
help you form an idea of what is soon coming to pass.
We are living in the end of the end times this is for sure.
We see many of Satan's evil agendas and plans being played out on the
world stage more and more, day by day. I believe the Covid 19 virus (Corona virus)
is fake and is a tool being used by Satan to further subdue the world to bring
about his end times plans. I also believe the BLM movement is also just another one of Satan's
tools to bring about his plans. There is a lot of propoganda/agendas going on. Be
careful what you take in as truth. Don't involve yourself in these worldly events.
Stay close to God in His word, in prayer and doing His will, for the kingdom of God draweth nigh.

There was a point in 2017 where the "mandela effect" was brought to the
top pages of YouTube, gaining popularity amongst many communities.
The claims that the word of God have changed are completely false and evil.
It is a deception, designed to confuse and deceive Christians.
It was heavily used in online Christian communities by the ministers of Satan.
These wolves in sheeps clothing were claiming there were changes in the Bible.
Why? To make people lose confidence in the inspired words of God, the Holy Bible.
Which I believe God preserved to us English readers in the King James Bible.
Do you really think God would allow such evil to happen? Absolutely not.
You can have full confidence in your King James Bible.
Nothing has magically changed in the Bible. The only thing changed in Bibles are
the wicked modern translations that use heretical and corrupted translations of the Old and New Testaments
to translate into their English Bibles.
Do not be deceived. We are living in the last years of the world. Satans ministers and people
far outnumber the righteous. I recommend staying off YouTube as much as possible and in your Bible
letting God teach you.
1 John 2:27
"But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not
that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and
is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him."
I do not recommend listening to ministers in churches or on YouTube, 99% of them are all
ministers of Satan. I lie not. These wicked ministers and false apostles love to preach
easy believism, teachings that allow you to commit lustful sin contrary to the will of God and
doctrines that ill prepare you for what is soon coming to pass. For
example the early rapture doctrine which basically makes
Christians believe they are going to escape the coming persecution, when that is just not true according to scripture.
For some tips on studying the word of God yourself, please visit this page.
When I first came to the truth of the Bible and realized that we need to obey God's will to
be saved, one of the things that I was unsure of, until I searched the scriptures, was whether or
not I needed to keep the Sabbath day or not. As I knew it was something God commanded the Israelites
to keep. But was it something Christians needed to?
Scripture makes it clear that Christians do not have to keep the Sabbath.
"Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of
an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:"
From Ellicott's commentary on Colossians 2:16
"It is obvious that St. Paul gives no hint of any succession of the Lord's Day to be,
in any strict sense, a "Christian Sabbath." We know, indeed, that the Jewish Sabbath itself
lingered in the Church, as having a kind of sacredness, kept sometimes as a fast, sometimes
as a festival. But its observance was not of obligation. No man was to "judge" others in respect of it."
In the book of Acts in chapter 21 verse 25, Paul is speaking on things regarding the customs of the Jews,
and what, if any, should the gentiles keep.
"As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no
such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered
to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication."
If the Sabbath was something to be kept under the new covenant,
I believe it would have been mentioned here.
"And it came to pass, that he went through the corn fields on the sabbath day; and his
disciples began, as they went, to pluck the ears of corn. And the Pharisees said
unto him, Behold, why do they on the sabbath day that which is not lawful? And he said
unto them, Have ye never read what David did, when he had need, and was an hungred, he, and they
that were with him? How he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high
priest, and did eat the shewbread, which is not lawful to eat but for the priests, and
gave also to them which were with him? And he said unto them, The sabbath was
made for man, and not man for the sabbath: therefore the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath."
Those that are in Christ under grace through faith are not under the Law
neither the commandments of Moses. Though I will say, besides the Sabbath commandment, the other 9 commandments
are taught (some indirectly) in the New Testament.
"For sin shall not have dominion over you: for ye are not under the law, but under grace."
