No. 23 – Quote Bro. Ray On This!

The American Standard (perverted bible) Version along with most other perversions has removed “through his blood” from Colossians 1:14, thus removing the basic doctrine of New Testament “redemption”.  Why would you read, recognize, or listen to anyone preaching from these perversions of Scripture?

No. 22 – Quote Bro. Ray On This!

Colossians 4:8  wipes out a lot of TV News, TV shows, many movies, the majority of secular mu-sick, much or most of Christian TV, Christian Rock and Rap, over 200 perverted bibles since the AV1611 Bible,  and much more of what you see and hear on a daily basis.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. Col.4:8

GOOD ADVICE FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT!! by Dwane Karr

ADMONITIONS AND ENSAMPLES

…We obviously live in a time where church attending Christians spend little to no time in their Bible’s outside of church. That has led to a powerless church and a very loose brand of personal conduct that highly displeases the Lord. Many of the characteristics lacking in the personal traits of these folks comes from the fact that what little time they do spend in the Bible is almost exclusively spent in the New Testament.

…Two NT verses specifically address the OT and show what these selective readers are missing out on. The first verse is:  Rom.15:4 “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”  In that verse alone they are missing out on “learning”, “patience”, “comfort” and “hope”! Could a lot of these folks benefit from those things???

And the second verse is;  1 Cor.10:11 ” Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”  How many of the things listed above in (Rom.15:4) could be learned from the “ensamples” found all through the OT? And “admonitions”, Web.1828 says of “admonition”; {Gentle reproof; counseling against a fault; instruction in duties; caution; direction.} Wow! Admonitions would directly address the personal conduct issues found all to abundantly in our modern-day, powerless churches.


***Good advice*** Get in the Book!…and QUIT IGNORING THE OLD TESTAMENT!

Dwane Karr’s Post is #1

Karr’s Video and Post Remain Ezekiel3’s

#1  Read of all Time

This post centered around Dwane Karr’s visit to a “christian rock concert” at Parkersburg, WV’s First Presbyterian Church deserves another look for it’s content and popularity.  Well here it is in it’s entirety with accompanying videos. Check it out!  A real shocker!!.

STARVING PEOPLE DON’T GIVE A **** ABOUT PREACHING! by Dwane Karr

INTERVIEW VIDEO

https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151362205412374&set=vb.571162373&type=2&theater

Well we almost didn’t get in.  They had us pegged from the get go.  I told the lady in charge that we just wanted to come in and see what it was like and she softened up.  Attendance was small.  We sat through four groups.  I was not able to understand the lyrics of the songs.  The attire of the participants was typical punk rock garb.

Video–CANT WE COME IN? https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10151361988897374&set=vb.571162373&type=2&theater

I went to purchase waters for the three of us and had a conversation with the lady running the show who we had encountered before entering the building ( the one who wasn’t going to let us in).  I inquired about the cause (mission trip to Missouri) of the event.  She said they go on a mission trip every year and the kids work hard to pay the cost each year.  I did not get to find out exactly what they do on these mission trips, but judging from the comments of a very unfriendly mother who approached us as we were leaving, good works like feeding the hungry appear to be the focus of the mission trips.

The unfriendly mother’s point was a typical one of allowing the kids to “express themselves their way” without correcting or condemning them for their behavior, thus being able to stay in their lives and steer them to remain “God centered”.  Whatever that means.  Her daughter sang in the second band that played.  Mom was very proud of her using her “gift” for God.  A local pastor who Larry knew came over and talked with us between bands.  His son played in one of the bands.  This pastor explained how many of the bands started out “Christian” using “God and “Jesus” in their songs, then later go more mainstream and change “God” and “Jesus” to more generic names like “Him” and “The One”.  After he left, Larry said, “He knows its wrong”.  Before he left the pastor said one band we heard had a really good message, but he wasn’t able to understand enough of their words to really know what the song said???????  The pastor also said that when the message was good it had a greater effect when the band drove it home powerfully.

In the end, I don’t have a feeling of strong rebuke in me.  Truly, I feel sad in my soul.  I  believe the woman running things loves the kids and sees this approach as the ONLY WAY  she can stay in her daughters and the rest of the kids lives…to positively influence them and “Keep Them God Centered”.  These people are scared they will push away the kids by trying to enforce Biblical standards on them.  Here is the place it all goes off course.  The Book (AV1611 Holy Bible) is abandoned while allowing the kids to live sinful lives as long as you can keep them in church.  Bottom line: These are typical ( in today’s society) rebellious kids who are allowed to live their lives as they see fit as long as they will conform to a set of rules acceptable to Catholics and Universalists everywhere (Basically, don’t have filthy lyrics in the songs and wear enough clothes to cover your private parts).

In the end there is no  mention of salvation or a need for a new birth involved in this rock ministry.  First Presbyterian at Parkersburg, WV  and this program is purely a “works” based religion.  Like the world’s heroes, (Mother Teresa, Gandhi, etc) they are concerned about supplying bread for the hungry, rather than the BREAD OF LIFE.  The lady who confronted us in the parking lot before we left made their position on the Bible and the gospel of Jesus Christ very clear when she said,  “Starving people don’t give a DAMN  about PREACHING, they just want something to eat!”  That sums up the “Jamming for Jesus” crowd in a nutshell.  Their reality is the physical realm.  Sadly, they have no concept of the invisible spiritual realm.  What they fail to realize is that God is a Spirit and they that worship Him must worship Him in SPIRIT  and in TRUTH.

2 Cor. 5:21 – ETERNAL SECURITY by Dwane Karr

 Rom.10:3,4 ” For they being ignorant of God’s righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

My favorite verse; 2 Cor.5:21 “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” The first half of the verse [GLORY, THANK YOU JESUS] is His suffering to save us but that is not what this post is about. That was done so that  “we might be made the  righteousness of God  in him”. The fact that we are “made the righteousness of God in him” proves that nobody was “Born Again” before the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Despite the fact that many go ballistic when you say that, it is Bible truth that can not be denied.

That precious “righteousness of God” is the imputed righteousness we are given when we are Born Again. Many deny imputed righteousness as well.  The fact is that if you do not have God’s imputed righteousness you are lost and on your way to Hell.  The righteousness of God WAS NOT AND COULD NOT be given by God to anyone prior to the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for a very simple reason.   Jesus Christ had to ESTABLISH THE PERFECT RIGHTEOUS LIFE BY LIVING THE PERFECT RIGHTEOUS LIFE TO BRING IT INTO EXISTENCE!!!   It wasn’t available to the O.T. Saint.  Note how Paul tells us this very plainly; (Rom.3:21) ” But NOW the righteousness of God without the law IS MANIFESTED, being witnessed by the law and the prophets;”

Those OT Saints had to establish their own righteousness; (Deut.6:25) “And it shall be OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS, [if] WE observe to DO all these commandments before the LORD our God, as he hath commanded us.”  (And offer sacrifices when they sinned, and die in a proper state maintaining their established righteousness to the end of their life, and still receive Grace from God for all men fall short). Even then they had to go to Abraham’s Bosom and not Heaven for they had to wait for the Lamb’s Precious Blood to be shed to provide Clearing of sins, not just forgiveness. They had Remission of sins, but not Redemption.

This explains (Rom.10:3-4) ” For they being ignorant of {God’s righteousness}, and going about to {establish their own righteousness}, have not submitted themselves unto the {righteousness of God}. For Christ is the end of the law for righteousness to every one that believeth.”   The time when a man had to establish his own righteousness was over when Paul penned these God Breathed words. This is where Israel stumbled.  Their PRIDE demanded they have a part (works) in their salvation. That was the way it had been.  They would not admit that Jesus Christ had lived a perfect life and fulfilled the Law perfectly.  They would not admit that since Christ had done that the standard was now perfection which they could not achieve on their own.  The Pride of the Jews would not allow them to admit they could DO NOTHING, not even have a LITTLE PART IN THEIR SALVATION.  Total reliance on Jesus Christ was full humility and DEATH TO THEIR PRIDE.  So they rejected SALVATION FULL AND FREE, and instead went to Hell in droves.

I wrote this to expose the error of many FaceBook “Christians” who believe works must be a part of their salvation today. Those who hate OSAS (Eternal Security), those who believe Lordship Salvation (practicing discipleship necessary to prove salvation), those who believe you must first turn from sin then Christ will forgive your past sins, then go and sin no more=sinless perfection etc.  Those of you who believe one or more of what I have just written are in the same boat as the Jews at the time Paul wrote the book of Romans.  Your problem is Pride.  Your Pride is going to drag you into Hell unless you will swallow it and realize you are a helpless, hopeless sinner and trust the FINISHED WORK OF JESUS CHRIST ON CALVARY TO SAVE YOU!

He paid it all. If you go to Heaven it will be 100% because of what Jesus Christ accomplished for you and ZERO on your part. You must be Born Again at which time you will receive the Imputed Righteousness of Christ which is THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF GOD. That is the bottom line on Salvation in the Church Age, the time from Pentecost to the Rapture, and no amount of trying to justify your self in any manner will work. Jesus Christ paid it all, all to Him I owe.  If you can’t say that or don’t understand that you are still lost and on your way to a Fiery Devils Hell.  I pray some of you seriously consider these words before it is too late!

THEY HAVE ATTACKED GOD’s BIBLE by Dwane Karr

God Refuses To Give Them Light

~ When you look at scholars and preachers who do not believe the King James Bible is a perfect Bible, you will notice that they miss cross references time and again that back up the very verses they are attacking.  That is because once they have attacked God’s Bible, God refuses to give them light on these references to make them look foolish.

~ A perfect case is Acts 8:37 dealing with the salvation of the Ethiopian eunuch. Many say this verse should not be in the Bible. They will say, as Bullinger does in his Companion Bible; “Most texts omit this verse. The Revised Version puts it in the margin.” Or as John R. Rice said in his Commentary on Acts; “The best authorities and manuscripts omit verse 37.”

~ In vs. 35 Philip “preached unto him Jesus.” In vs 36 “the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?” Philip then answers him in Acts 8:37 “And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I BELIEVE THAT JESUS CHRIST IS THE SON OF GOD.”  Now look how perfectly his answer matches these three verses.

1 John 3:23 ” And this is his commandment, That we should BELIEVE ON THE NAME OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST, and love one another, as he gave us commandment.”

John 20:31 “But these are written, that ye might BELIEVE THAT JESUS IS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF GOD; and that believing ye might have LIFE THROUGH HIS NAME.”

Acts 4:12 “Neither is there salvation in any other: for THERE IS NONE OTHER NAME under heaven given among men, WHEREBY WE MUST BE SAVED.”

The problem is in the ego’s of the men who think they are smarter than God.

Once again, the winner by a Knockout. The still Unbeaten and Untied Bible whose words “For ever” are (Ps.119:89) “settled in heaven” the A.V.1611 King James Authorized Version!

EVERY WORD OF GOD by Dwane Karr

PURE WORDS

*****Those of us who are privileged to know we have God’s words, perfect, inspired, and preserved to be blessed by, guided by, and yes rebuked by; realize how important EVERY WORD is. We take God literally and believe Him absolutely.
*****God said this is the way I establish credibility.;
2 Cor.13:1 ” This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall EVERY WORD be established.”

Witness #1 Moses
Deut.8:3 “Man doth not live by bread only, but by EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.”

Witness #2 Matthew
Matt.4:4 “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

Witness #3 Luke
Luke 4:4 ” It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by EVERY WORD of God.”

God has made sure we have EVERY WORD He wants us to have because…
Prov.30:5 ” EVERY WORD of God is {{{ PURE }}}.”

Pure like God is!  Pure like it is in Heaven!  Pure like the Holy Spirit inside us! Pure like the life God wants us to strive to live!  Pure like we will be for all of eternity after God perfects us! Pure, because (Phil.4:8) purity of thought is God’s command for us. Pure because (1 Tim.3:9) God wants us to have a “Pure conscience.” Pure because God commands us (1 Tim.5:22) to “keep thyself Pure.” And lastly Pure because (Jam.3:17) “The wisdom that is from above is Pure and that wisdom can only be acquired from the PURE WORD OF GOD!

DWANE KARR SPEAKS OUT – FILTHY LUCRE

The following post is from  the heart and mind of Dwane Karr while he is recovering at Camden Clark Memorial Hospital.  I am relaying his message as I receive words and thoughts from him by phone. 

 

1 Timothy 6:5   Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

The above scripture, describing willful sin is obviously from the New Testament and continues to the modern churches till this very day.  The heresy of health, wealth, and happiness for the Christian began long before Paul penned the above words to Timothy.  Paul himself benefitted from the PROSPERITY GOSPEL before his conversion to Christ.

Galatians 1:14  And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.

Paul realized early on in his walk with Jesus Christ that the things esteemed highly by men profited nothing.  Hence, under the careful guidance of the Holy Ghost he wrote the words of God for the ages and God preserved them for this age in the AV1611 Holy Bible, saying in Phillipians chapter 3:

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.

Before the coming of Christ, mankind was warned by God against perverting the words  of God for gain; whether it be a BRIBE in the form of  CURRENCY or the APPROVAL  of other men.

Exodus 23:8  And thou shalt take no gift: for the gift blindeth the wise, and perverteth the words of the righteous.  Jeremiah 23:36  And the burden of the Lord shall ye mention no more: for every man’s word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the Lord of hosts our God.

God continues in the New Testament writings of Paul under the direction of the Holy Ghost and admonishes and warns us of this MODERN DAY; Blab it and Grab It; gospel flooding our modern media; falsely; as though it were from God.

Hebrews 13;5  Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
