"On Being A Christian" by Pastor Peter Thomas 

  

  

ON  BEING  A  CHRISTIAN  

  

  

Dear Reader:  

  

  

          Reassess what you think you know about what it means to be a Christian.  What is a Christian?  Who can scripturally be called 'Christian'?  Do you know where the term 'Christian' originated?  Are you really a Christian?  Ask yourself a soul stirring question, "Am I really a Christian?"  How does one come to be a Christian?  So, you claim to be a Christian?  Let us examine your claim based on Scriptures.  Not your emotions.  Not your upbringing, how you were raised.  Not your tradition.

 

 

I  am  a  Christian.    However,  I  am  NOT  part  of  Christianity.    Read  on.   

 

 

          Many around the world and around the globe say that they are in Christianity.  There is a difference between a Christian and being in Christian-ity.  The Holy Scriptures  ( the  Bible )  tell us that many false  ( I.e.  prophets,  Christianity ) have gone into the world.  ( See  1  John  4:1)

 

 

1  John  4:1 

Beloved,  believe  not  every  spirit,  but try the spirits whether they are of God:  because  many  false  prophets  are  gone  out  into  the  world.

 

 

BELIEVE 

          Keep in mind that you must obey God's Gospel to be saved.  You must obey the  Scriptures.  Are you one of the deceived that would say that all you have to do is believe in Jesus to be saved?  Do you say  'faith'  in Christ alone saves?  You are deceived.  You, with your hyper-grace doctrine, let me open it up for you.  Hebrews  11:6 says, "  ...  for  he  that  cometh  to  God  must  believe  that  he  is, ...".    If you say that you believe that he is, then John 7:38 tells us that Jesus said, "He  that  believeth  on  me,  as  the  scripture  hath  said, ..."  - You've got to believe on Jesus Christ according to the Bible.  The problem, I have discovered, is that people  DON'T  believe on Jesus Christ "as the scripture hath said", they try to believe on him according 'as man has said'.  This, Dear Reader, is problematic for you.  It condemns you right there.  You  cannot  be  saved  believing  a  lie.  If you don't believe me, let us go a little further and see what the Book of Thessalonians has to say. 

 
 

2  Thessalonians  2:10-12
10 - And  with  all  deceivableness  of  unrighteousness  in  them  that  perish;  because  they  received  not  the  love  of  the  truth,  that  they  might  be  saved.

11 - And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 - That  they  all  might  be  damned  who  believed  not  the  truth,  but  had  pleasure  in  unrighteousness.

          Hear me now.  If you heed my counsel, it'll do you good.  Since you say that you are a Christian and that you are saved, then you will accept this and this only.  You don't like it, but must take it!  For it is the Word of God.  Listen to the Bible talk:

Mark  16:16
He  that  believeth  and  is  baptized  shall  be  saved;  but  he  that  believeth  not  shall  be  damned.

          They that gladly received Apostle Peter's word were baptized.  How?  In the name of Jesus Christ.  ( See  Acts  2:41 ).

Acts  2:38 
Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts  2:41 

Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

GOD  HATES  A  LIE 

          God hates a liar and will punish you for making a lie  or  believing  a  lie.  If you love a lie or tell lies, you are in great danger of hellfire!  Be  careful  what  your  preacher  tells  you.  Come to the knowledge of the truth.  Read on further.

 

 

Revelation  22:14-15 

14Blessed  are  they  that  do  his  commandments,  that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 - For  without  are  dogs,  and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters,  and  whosoever  loveth  and  maketh  a  lie.

Proverbs  6:16-19
16 - These  six  things  doth  the  LORD  hate:  yea, seven are an  abomination  unto  him:

17 - A proud look,  a  lying  tongue,  and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 - An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 -  A  false  witness  that  speaketh  lies,  and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Proverbs  12:22 
Lying  lips  are  abomination  to  the  LORD:  but they that deal truly are his delight.

2  Thessalonians  2:10-12
10 - And  with  all  deceivableness  of  unrighteousness  in  them  that  perish;  because  they  received  not  the  love  of  the  truth,  that  they  might  be  saved.

11 - And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

12 - That  they  all  might  be  damned  who  believed  not  the  truth,  but  had  pleasure  in  unrighteousness.

Revelation  21:8 
But  the  fearful,  and  unbelieving,  and  the  abominable,  and murderers,  and  whoremongers,  and sorcerers, and idolaters,  and  all  liars,  shall  have  their  part  in  the  lake  which  burneth  with  fire  and  brimstone:  which is the second death.

Revelation  21:27
And  there  shall  in  no  wise  enter  into  it  any  thing  that  defileth,  neither  whatsoever  worketh  abomination,  or  maketh  a  lie:  but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.


Revelation  22:14-15 

14 - Blessed  are  they  that  do  his  commandments,  that  they  may  have  right  to  the  tree  of  life,  and may enter in through the gates into the city.

15 - For  without  are  dogs,  and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters,  and  whosoever  loveth  and  maketh  a  lie.

          Examine for yourself.  When you see what they claim and it does not add up to the Word of God, it is false.  False doctrine will damn your soul, but I can free you.  If you come in any other way but through the door, you are a thief and a robber.

RECEIVE

Matthew  28:19  +  John  3:5  =  ACTS  2:38.    In  other  words,  Mark  16:16.  

John  10:1-2,  9-10 

1 - Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 

  

2 - But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 

  

9 - I am the door:  by  me  if any man enter in,  he  shall  be  saved,  and shall go in and out, and find pasture. 

  

10 - The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. 

 

 

          If you come into the Church any other way, the Bible states that you are a thief and a robber.  You must be born in the Church.  In other words,  you  must  be  born  again  to get into the Church.  God’s Word tells us to be born in her.  Read.

Psalms  78:5-7
5 - For he established a testimony in Jacob, and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers,  that  they  should  make  them  known  to  their  children:

6 - That  the  generation  to  come  might  know  them,  even  the  children  which  should  be  born;  who should arise  and  declare  them  to  their  children:

7 - That they might  set  their  hope  in  God,  and  not  forget  the works of  God,  but  keep  his  commandments:
 

Psalms  87:5-6 

5 - And of Zion it shall be said, This and that man was  born  in  her:  and the highest himself shall establish her.

   

6 - The LORD shall count, when he writeth up the people, that this man was born there.  Selah. 

          'Selah' means to meditate on these things.  Let us examine further your claim that you are a Christian.  Remember the words of Jesus to Nicodemus in John chapter 3. 

John  3: 3-7 

3 - Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,  Except  a  man  be  born  again,  he  cannot  see  the  kingdom  of  God. 

  

4 - Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old?  Can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born? 

  

5 - Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,  Except  a  man  be  born  of  water  and  of  the  Spirit,  he  cannot  enter  into  the  kingdom  of  God.   

  

6 - That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 

  

7 -  Marvel not that I said unto thee,  Ye  must  be  born  again.

1  Peter  1:23
Being  born  again,  not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible,  by  the  word  of  God,  which  liveth  and  abideth  for  ever.

1  Peter  1:25
But  the  word  of  the  Lord  endureth  for  ever.    And  this  is  the  word  which  by  the  gospel  is  preached  unto  you.

 

          The world of Christendom is filled with many impostors.  It is a fraud.  I find it to be spurious.  When you look at the condition of what is called 'church' today, it does not take a long time to know that something is drastically wrong.  When you look and see these so called 'churches' and then you look at Scriptures, you will quickly know that this is  not  God’s Church.  It is the devil's church. 

 

 

          Now, to get into God's Church, one must repent, be baptized in water in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission  (removal)  of sin, get the Holy Ghost, do works meet for repentance and live a holy, sanctified life.  ( See  Acts  2:38 )

 

  

Acts  2:38 

Then  Peter  said  unto  them,  Repent,  and  be  baptized  every  one  of  you  in  the  name  of  Jesus  Christ  for  the  remission  of  sins,  and  ye  shall  receive  the  gift  of  the  Holy  Ghost. 

  

 

          When one says that he or she is a  Christian,  that means that he or she is a follower  ( disciple )  of Christ.  As such, if one says he or she is  a  follower  of  Christ,  then this individual  will  do  what  Christ  has  said.  Many today say that they are Christians, but they are not.  Follow the scriptures to see if this bears out.  The term 'Christian' started out in Antioch and afterward Apostle Peter used the terminology.  The foundation has already been set up.  Nothing that you do or say will be able to offset the purpose of God.  

( See  Acts  11:26,  Acts  26:28,  1  Peter  4:16,  2  Timothy  2:19 ).    

  

  

Acts  11:26 

And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch.  And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people.  And the disciples were called  Christians  first in Antioch. 

 

  

Acts  26:28 

Then Agrippa said unto Paul, Almost thou persuadest me to be a  Christian. 

  

 

1  Peter  4:16 

Yet if any man suffer as a  Christian,  let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf.

2  Timothy  2:19 
Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his.  And, let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.

 

          The ones that have heard my gospel and will refuse to obey this gospel are lost and will have no chance of salvation at the end of this life’s journey.  Obey  Acts  2:38.  If you cannot see what I preach, I'm sorry, you are lost.  It is sad.  With all my opening it up.  Humble yourself and beg God for mercy on your poor soul.  You are lost now,  NOT  going to be lost, but lost already.  For Apostle Paul declared if you can't see what I preach, you  ARE  lost.  ( See  2  Corinthians  4:3-4 )

 

 

2  Corinthians  4:3-4 

3 - But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: 

  

4 - In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.  

 

 

          YOU,  that are going to these false churches,  COME  OUT  of every one of them.  Don't go to church anymore.  Stay home and go to hell for free, and not be a hypocrite.  You are not going to get any credit from God for going.  Otherwise, repent and get saved for real.  Can't you see?  Don't you see?  These churches look nothing more than a night club with strobe lights.  They are dark.  Many of them look like a theatrical black hole.  Eerie. 

 

   

          Is this what you like?  Do you want that for your church?  False prophets  ( your  Pastor,  your  Bishop,  your  so-called  Apostle )  don't mind your daughters looking like tramps.  A whorehouse church with female all ages looking like hookers.  Holy sisters do not dress like a slut.  Mr. Player, I don't want any playboy around me.  Mr. Pimp, why do you dress like that?  From the pulpit to the pew.  You are going to be judged by God for your dressing.   

 

 

          My admonition to you all is to change course today.  Right now is your chance to be saved.  Repent.    NO,  you don't need your jewelry.  NO  WEAVES.    NO,  Women,  holy sisters  DO  NOT  WEAR  PANTS.    NO  TROUSERS.    Men and young brothers, it is time to start dressing decent and be well groomed.  Inside and outside of church.  I invite you to come with me on this incredible journey.  God delivered me from falsehood and from the False-church.  He can do the same for you. 

 

     

          Deny everything not right.  Refuse it.  You have the right to  REFUSE  SIN. 

          Everybody in this dispensation is commanded to  obey  Acts  2:38,  in order to be saved. 

  

 

Mark  16:16 

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned. 

   

 

John  3:5 

Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God

  

 

Acts  2:38 

 Then  Peter  said  unto  them,  Repent,  and  be  baptized  every  one  of  you  in  the  name  of  Jesus  Christ  for  the  remission  of  sins,  and  ye  shall  receive  the  gift  of  the  Holy  Ghost.
