Arise: Contend for the Faith - vs. cults, 'world religions,' winds of doctrines, heresies, blasphemies, Satanic lies....
"Hear ye now what the LORD saith; Arise, contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice. Hear ye, O mountains, the LORD'S controversy, and ye strong foundations of the earth: for the LORD hath a controversy with His people, and HE will plead with Israel." Micah 6:1-2
Arise: Contend for the Faith will focus specifically on addressing the vain philosophies and deceits of man and Satan, as put forth by the cults, and the 'world religions' or the purportedly 'great religions of the world,' outside of perfected Jewry (Christianity), and which are diametrically and eternally opposed to GOD the Father, His CHRIST, His Gospel, and His Kingdom.
With one exception (Cultic christian churches), the fads, winds of doctrine, vain philosophies, blasphemies, heresies, Satanic doctrines and lies embraced within, and espoused by so much of 'Christianity,' will be addressed at: What is Truth, Key Doctrinal Questions, and Other Spiritual Questions.
. Once upon a time there was a great humanitarian, the man was a Jew, while the man was still a young boy he suffered terribly in the Nazi's prisons aka "concentration camps" which they used in their Satanic attempt to annihilate the Jews. But by the mercy of God the boy survived the Nazi's extermination (& attempted annihilation) of the Jews (& the Soviet's extermination & attempted annihilation of the Jews), the man would achieve world-wide fame, and would be known for his humanitarian deeds & words. Once upon a time is now, and the great man for all of his world-famed knowledge and wisdom is inexcusably and disastrously ignorant of his maker, his creator, the God of the Jews & the God of the Christians, the God for all people that will submit to him and receive as their God.
The following quote is attributed to Nobel Laureate, Elie Wiesel:
"No human race is superior; no religious faith is inferior. All collective judgments are wrong. Only racists make them." [Well a fool made this declaration, for all of his humanitarian decency and brilliance, he is a fool. And Elie claims to be religious!]
Only if there is no God, is no religious faith true, and Elie correct. Only if there is no God, are the gods, i.e., the demons, of animism, Satanism, Witchcraft, the Occult, the New Age, Hinduism, Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism, Islam, Mormonism, the Jehovah's Witnesses, Voo Doo, the Druids, Sun Worship, Paganism, Heathenism, Greek Mythology, animal worship, nature worship, Hedonism, Marxism, Communism...equal.
But the "wisdom" of "great thinkers" like Elie notwithstanding, there is one true God, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. And Elie Wiesel is disastrously, shamefully, eternally, ruinously wrong and headed for eternal suffering that Jesus the Christ, Yeshua Hamashiach, the Messiah, came, and sacrificed, and suffered, and died (and after three days rose again, and after 50 days ascended into heaven to the right hand of God the Father) to save Elie from suffering. Sadly, Jesus's infinitely great self-sacrifice was for many people a sacrifice made in vain (even for some of the best of sinners), due to their unwillingness to recognize him as the Messiah, the only name given under heaven by which we may be saved, and their unwillingness to submit to his Lordship. What a pity that fine humanitarians like Elie should suffer eternally with the Nazis (may Elie recognize the errors of his ways, and embrace Jesus as Saviour & Lord before he dies). And what a shame, and I do mean shame, that people like Elie Wiesel, by their embracing of all cultures, all religions (except the exclusive truth of Jesus Christ), should perhaps succeed in leading greater multitudes to eternal destruction than the likes of Karl Marx, Leon Trotsky, Vladimir Lenin, Josef Stalin...Adolph Hitler (& Himmler, Goebbels, Hesse, Eichmann...), Mussolini, Hirohito & Tojo, Mao tse Tung, Ho Chi Minh, Pol Pot, Kim I & Kim II, Fidel Castro, Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein, Yassir Arafat, ...all combined ever could! What a truly monstrous shame!
. If you have a heart for truth, and desire to know and worship the true God, seek him in His Holy Word, the Holy Bible, and you will find Him.
"Pilate therefore said unto Him, Art thou a king then? JESUS answered, Thou sayest that I am a king, To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice. Pilate saith unto Him, What is truth?"
"Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole. This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other; for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
"And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins."
I Corinthians 3:11
"For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ."
"When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven. And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
"Fear not, I am the first and the last; I am he that liveth and was dead; and, behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen, and have the keys of hell and of death."
"I am thy fellow-servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy."
. The truth is:
No human race has a corner on the market on righteousness, goodness, godliness; no. All have sinned and fallen short of the kingdom of God. All are under sin, and lost, and damned, absent a saviour.
God is the God of the Jews and the God of the Christians.
The Holy Bible is God's Holy Word, the Holy scriptures, given for all peoples.
Jesus is the Christ, the Messiah, Yeshua, Y'shua, there is no other name given on earth by which we may be saved.
Jesus came from heaven, sacrificed, laid down his life a perfect sinless atonement for sin, so that whosoever of any nation or race of people on earth would choose to believe on him as Saviour, and receive him as their Saviour would be forgiven their sins and inherit eternal life.
Jesus the Christ is the only Saviour there is for any and for all people, whether they be Jew or Gentile, white, black, brown, red, yellow...semitic, caucasian, european, scandinavian, negroid/african, arabic, oriental/asian, hispanic/latino....
The Hebrew faith, and the Christian faith (completed Hebrew faith) were fashioned and breathed by God.
All other so-called 'faiths' & 'religions' are lies, are shams, are pagan, heathen, infidel, and are Satanic to the core (infinitely, and damnably worse than merely inferior, lacking, or deficient).
Is this to say that most professing Jews and Christians are saved and destined to enjoy eternal life with God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Ghost, and the heavenly host in the eternal Kingdom of God? No, sadly, regrettably no.
. A Few Key Defining Characteristics or Hallmarks of CultsFor purposes of this list of key defining characteristics, "They" and "they" refer to the cult's founders, leaders, and current leaders or officers...that are in sync with the cult founders.
They attempt to diminish GOD - they misrepresent GOD as being grossly inferior to the Almighty GOD He truly is.
They attempt to diminish Jesus Christ - they portray Him as being less than divine, as being only a man, e.g., only a 'good man,' perhaps a prophet, a great teacher, but God? Never!
They attempt to corrupt, subvert, and pervert, the Word of God - they do this via 'translation,' plagiarism, and substitution. An example of the cults' 'translations' is the Jehovah's Witnesses' New World Translation; an example of the cults' plagiarism is the Koran/Quran; examples of the cults' substitution are the J.W.'s (the so-called "Jehovah's Witnesses") voluminous Watchtower publications, the Mormon's Book of Mormon, and the Doctrines & Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price.
They typically deny Hell and deny the Lake of Fire & Brimstone. In the place of coming judgment followed by eternal suffering, they substitute a very finite suffering of death, annihilation, extermination, followed by absence of suffering.
They typically teach that the one unforgivable sin is to leave their ranks, with the most extremely damnable demonstration of such 'unfaithfulness' being to repent and turn to Jesus the Christ for salvation (to become His converts, His disciples, His followers)!
They attempt to control you (and your family) and your life (and thus, your eternal destiny)!
In the case of Islam (which invariably is described as being 'one of the world's great religions,' but never described as a cult), they promise highest eternal honor & blessing, with blessing featuring a perpetual orgy of sexual pleasures with a harem of beautiful young women, for those males who will die in the act of murdering, slaughtering, and destroying "the infidels," i.e., Jews, Christians, and even Muslims who oppose the foundational Satanic bloodlust of Islam against God, against God's Christ, and against God's people. [But, these murderers will suffer eternal damnation and eternal suffering for these most monstrous evils that they (like their satanic founder/leader the false prophet Mohammed/Muhammad) commit.]
. The remains of the Temple, referred alternatively to as the "Western Wall" and/or as the "Wailing Wall," is overshadowed by the Al-Aqsa Mosque & the Dome of the Rock, which were erected on the Temple Mount to supplant the Hebrew Temple, to attempt to permanently prevent the Temple from being rebuilt, and thus to attempt to overthrow God's Word, God's Work, and God's eternal plans, purposes, & promises, God made to the Jews and to all whom He would save, from being fulfilled. This is a picture of the spiritual reality that Islam is a Satanically masterminded sham religion, crafted to imitate, plagiarize, supplant, overcome, and destroy Christianity (i.e., completed Jewry); it is a picture worth a million words, that displays Islam's mortal combat with Jewry and Christianity (completed Jewry). Islam, its 'prophet' Mohammed/Muhammad, its ' god' Allah, and its creator Satan are at war with Jewry and Christianity, at war with Jesus, Yeshua, the Christ, the Messiah, and thus at war with God Almighty, and unquenchably hell-bent on their destruction. But if you have read God's Word, the Holy Bible, you should know that Satan the mastermind of all false religions, all adherents to those false religions, all who follow him in his war to supplant and destroy God and His Christ, will be overthrown, and eternally condemned to suffer eternally.
. Subchapters of Arise: Contend for the Faith
Subchapter addressing why we should choose Jesus Christ & God the Father, instead of competing gods of cults and so-called "great world religions":
Subchapter addressing holiness, what is legitimately Holy:
Holy! Holy? Holy, you say? What is Holy; what makes "Holy" holy, or what is legitimately entitled to be termed Holy?
Subchapters addressing so-called "great world religions," i.e., false religions:
Islam - The Quran Is Not The Word of God
Don't be conned by Confucianism, Buddhism....
Subchapters addressing major Cults made in the USA:
The Mormons are not Morons, but they are definitely not christians either - the so-called "Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints"
False Witnesses - The Watchtower Society, aka the "Jehovah's Witnesses"
Subchapter addressing cultic christian churches, which are not cults but share one cult-defining characteristic:
Cultic christian churches
. The times which lay ahead are very evil times indeed, but they are numbered, and after Satan has inflicted a reign of several unprecedentedly murderous years of global occupation and destruction, the LORD JESUS CHRIST will return in glory as righteous judge to execute judgment and justice on all those who have resisted, refused, and rejected the Love of God, Jesus the Christ.
Eternal relationship with God through Jesus Christ the Son, requires more than mental assent or belief that Jesus Christ is God the Son ('Billy Grahamic' or modernistic American christian evangelism notwithstanding). Eternal relationship with God requires obedience to God the Father through Jesus Christ the Son (John 12,13,14,15...).
