What are the half-truths of the lie preachers ?

And how are we seduced by them ?

 

The preachers of the half-truths (ie the lie preachers) occur officially as pious
priests or pastors. However, there are preachers who
seduce the world's believers to passivity on behalf of Satan -
and they always do this with great success.

Jesus Christ warned us about them, saying:

"Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves."
(Matthew 7/15)

A huge threat is posed by the preachers of half-truths - even a mortal threat !

Who is seduced to passivity in fact through their sermons,
is hoping in vain for eternal life in heaven.

In God's word we are told unequivocally:

"But be ye doers of the word and not hearers only; deceiving yourselves."
(James 1/22)

 

Important to know:

It is not possible for us to work our way to the kingdom of heaven solely through activities.
Only through the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, the path was made free.
But by passivity, you're going into eternal damnation on the Last Day, despite your belief.


Please check this statement regarding the passivity absolutely in the cleartext point 118.

How you will become a true Christian, which can be sure of his salvation on Judgement Day
you find out in the cleartext point 001.

Please also read the cleartext point 171. Its title:
The great danger in Christianity.

 

Now you will learn the difference between melodious half-truths and
very rough and uncomfortable sounding full truth in this cleartext point,
using the example of some biblical quotations.


This difference you need to know, because only then
you can build a genuine faith.

By half-truths, you fail to throw off Satan´s shackles.
Only the full and unfortunately often very inconvenient truth
makes you free - and leads you into God's kingdom.

Jesus Christ says:

"... the truth shall make you free."
(John 8/32)

 

Half truths are like counterfeit money.

Who wants to recognise counterfeit money, should not study how counterfeit money looks,
but must accurately inform himself - and remember,
which security features real money has.

Only then it is possible to unmask the very well made - but very
dangerous "fakes".

Just as is the case with the half-truths. Only when you intensely inform yourself about the full truth of God's Word (in the bible), you can recognise well preached
(but ultimately fatal) half-truths.

Therefore read much and often in your bible (and explanatory to that in the cleartext information), so you can build an unshakable knowledge of the bible,
which helps you in every situation.

 

In the bible, we are advised not to place value on the exterior of the preacher
(for example, on their clothes). What is more important, is to pay close attention to
whether their words are completely truthful.
Externals are completely unimportant.

"My brethren, have not the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory,
with respect of persons (put therefore no value on outward appearances).
For if there come unto your assembly a man with a gold ring, in goodly apparel,
and there come in also a poor man in vile raiment;
And ye have respect to him that weareth the gay clothing (you would look at the rich),
and say unto him, Sit thou here in a good place; and say to the poor (derogatory),
Stand thou there, or sit here under my footstool: Are ye not then partial in yourselves,
and are become judges of evil thoughts ? Hearken, my beloved brethren,
Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom
which he hath promised to them that love him ? But ye have despised the poor.
Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seat s?
Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called ?"
(James 2/1-6)

I'm going to reveal in this cleartext point numerous half-truths,
which are often read (directly from the bible) to the faithful in the religious sphere,
but only contain half of the truth - hence the name: half-truths.

Important to know:

With half-truths, no problems are solved,
but only "covered" and batted on into the future.

But why then are half truths more popular than the full truth of the bible ?

Simply because half truths don´t demand much from you.
One does not lift his butt out of the chair,
you don´t have to exert personal sacrifice,
you don´t have to give any money ...

All this is easier - and therefore much more popular with men, than the truth of the bible, which says: Give, waiver, Share, Do, Help ...

"... Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things ..."
(Isaiah 30/10)

And this "niche" is filled by the preachers of half-truths.
What people want to hear - that they preach.

Just with that, the "faithful" and "Christians" are soothed with enthusiasm -
only not with the full and uncomfortable truth !

With positive sounding factoids, you can achieve much better income than with the full
and inconvenient truth. With truths, you will only be disliked by the people.
This fact is known by the politicians as well as the preachers.

But the Lord has commissioned us to announce the full truth to people,
and not to pull the money out of their pockets with cunning and melodious half-truths.

"Therefore seeing we have this ministry ... we faint not(to announce the full truth);
But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty (we do not hide the uncomfortable truth),
not walking in craftiness (to become popular, and thereby gain access to the money of the people),
nor handling the word of God deceitfully (by concealing half) ..."
(2 Corinthians 4/1-2)


So true heralds of God's word have a hard time doing their job.
Hardly anyone wants to hear - and they get very little human assistance.

 

Already at the times of the Old Testament, many preachers spoke the words,
people gladly desired to hear.


But God says:

"They (the lie preachers) have seen vanity and lying divination, saying,
The LORD saith: and the LORD hath not sent them ..."
(Ezekiel 13/6)

 

That has not changed up to the present day. Even today the preachers of half-truths claim things the Lord has not said so - and the people like to listen to it because it is convenient,
and they are not prompted to act.

In the bible very often, you find the "if - then - principle".

If you offer God this or that - then you get ...

(Exact information in this regard is in the cleartext point 170.)

The preachers of half truths convince men that God's blessing
and his grace and mercy is watered and distributed to everybody.
But that is not true.

In cleartext point 137 you can look up who receives God's grace on which conditions.

Please read also the cleartext point 154. Its title: Who gets God's blessing ?

Jeremiah, who was sent by the Lord to the people, to tell them the whole truth,
was even threatened with death (Jeremiah 26/7-11), because even then
no one had an open ear for the painful truth.

The self-proclaimed prophet Hananiah was preaching to the people that they would be well,
and no danger threatened because God loves all people, no matter how they behave.
Exactly these "sayings" are in the repertoire of most present preachers.
They do not want to make themselves unpopular.

Therefore they do not admonish but speak of God's grace and his allegedly
unconditional mercy - just as people want to hear it.

(Please read about God's unique conditions for its grace
and mercy to that already mentioned cleartext point 137.)

"For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly;
and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple."
(Romans 16/18)


They seduce people to passivity by saying,
that deeds and works are not necessary, but alone
faith in Jesus Christ would be sufficient,
to enter God's kingdom.

Who them "buys" this, the one deceives himself.

Clearly, it says in the New Testament:

"But be ye doers of the word and not hearers only; deceiving your own selves."
(James 1/22)

That our deeds and works are very important for God and Jesus Christ,
please read in the cleartext points 010, 012 and 016.

 

Do not be deceived by the preachers of half-truths.
They create the illusion that deeds and works are not necessary.

Don't deceive yourself either, by constructing a faith
which is easy and convenient.

Never forget the warning from the bible:

"But be ye doers of the word and not hearers only; deceiving your own selves."
(James 1/22)

"Let no one deceive himself."
(1 Corinthians 3/18)

So - tear yourself up from your comfortable chair,
and be a doer of the Word.

 

The preacher of the half-truths refer often to the letters of Paul when they say,
that you will enter the kingdom of God without deeds and works (by grace alone).

Paul's words in his letters can easily lead to misunderstandings.
Peter warns us to believe lightly, what the preachers of
the half-truths try to talk us into, through the letters of Paul.

One of Paul's statements that can easily lead to misunderstandings is the following:

"For Christ is the end of the law ..."
(Romans 10/4)

What Paul meant by that, you learn later in this cleartext point.

The warning of Peter:

"As also in all his (Paul´s) epistles, speaking in them of these things;
in which are some things hard to be understood,
which they that are unlearned and unstable (and the preacher of the half-truths) wrest,
as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction."
(That will lead them to eternal damnation on Judgment Day.)
(2 Peter 3/16)


Peter adds to his warning:

"Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also,
being led away with the error of the wicked (profane = nasty, mean),
fall from your own stedfastness."
(2 Peter 3/17)

 

These are not the words of any man, named Peter, but
from Peter, who lived by Jesus' side - one of the twelve disciples of Jesus:

"Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ ..."
(2 Peter 1/1)

Therefore, he knew exactly what Jesus said repeatedly in his sermons -
namely that Jesus Christ will make the selection of who gets eternal life in God's Kingdom on the last day, only by looking at our deeds and works -
and who has to go to damnation for eternity.


Jesus' words on the subject you can check exactly in the aforementioned
cleartext point 118 (Judgement - Judgment Day).

Jesus scolded the Pharisees and scribes, because they didn´t put his words into action, but boasted thus,
to know what is written.

Although to know that is important - but it is equally important to put into action !

"But be ye doers of the word and not hearers only; deceiving your own selves."
(James 1/22)

Most believers expect not to be counted to the Pharisees
and scribes in the eyes of Jesus because they are called "Christians".

The Pharisees and scribes didn´t put the words of Jesus, who also simultaneously are the words of God, not into practice - so they didn´t do what the Lord commanded them.

Therefore Jesus did not count them to his friends because his friends are the ones which
do what he commands.

"Ye are (only) my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you."
(John 15/14)

For those who are not doing what He commands them, Jesus said:

"Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers !"
(Matthew 23/33)

Question: Are you doing what Jesus Christ says - what he commands you?

It's up to you how you Jesus signified you: as a friend - or as a snake and viper.

Only by doing what he tells you - which he instructed you,
are you one of his friends.

Jesus divided people only into two groups:
In those who are with him (who do what he commands them) -
and in those who are against him (which do not implement his words into action).

Jesus' statement:

"He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad."
(Matthew and Luke 12/30 11/23)

"Collect" people for the kingdom of heaven - as the Lord Jesus Christ commanded it to you.
Through my website with the cleartext information, this is made easy to you, because by
transferring money for the Google Advertising "AdWords" to me (see fundraising), you
fulfil Jesus´s Great Commission - and gather souls for him.

Switch to the side on which Jesus friends are (who do what he says).
Otherwise, it will be a very rude awakening for you at the last day (in the truest sense of the word),
because for Jesus Christ count our works -
and then only if we do them with enthusiasm for his sake.

Think always of Jesus' warning:

"I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot ... because thou art lukewarm ...
(If you do not put the words of Jesus with enthusiasm into action,
 then you act lukewarm in his eyes) I will spue thee out of my mouth."
(That is why I do not want you in my kingdom)
(Revelation 3/15-16)

 

With this website, I want to give a wake-up call to the people.
Let yourself as well transform to a doer of the word - a friend of Jesus, by the Lord's words.

 

If you realise clearly what the Lord Jesus has done for you,
then it will be your innermost desire to act for him in gratitude.

Jesus sacrificed his precious life on the cross under unimaginable torture and pain,
so that your (and my) sins will be forgiven. This frees the way into the kingdom of God for us.
And out of deep gratitude, it is easy to serve the Lord Jesus - thus act for him.

Please read the cleartext point 177 that we not only got to act somehow
on behalf of our Lord - but efficiently.

God sent Jeremiah to open the people's eyes,
but they would not hear the truth.

"... but ye would not hear, saith the LORD."
(Jeremiah 29/19)

And the prophet Jeremiah said to Hananiah the prophet:
"... Hear now, Hananiah; The LORD hath not sent thee; but thou makest this people to trust in a lie."
(Jeremiah 28/15)

Read for yourself in your bible, what God and Jesus Christ have to tell you.
Let the uncomfortable biblical quotations not slide up to you, because you think that they only
apply to "the evilest". Don´t be persuaded by other people also.
The Lord wants to - yes, wake you up and make you think.

Do not reject the word of the Lord - but rethink it and learn from the bible´s
written down warnings and draw the necessary conclusions.
Take the admonitions of the Lord. Let yourself reprimand !

"... be exhorted ..." (Berean Literal Bible)
(2 Corinthians 13/11)

 

In the bible it is written:

"For the time will come when they (the people) will not endure sound doctrine
(the truth that leads them to the rescuing repentance); but after their own lusts shall
they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth ..."
(2 Timothy 4/3-4)

We come to the first half-truth:

Often people rely on the preachers of half-truths which
taught, that we get in God´s kingdom without an action of our own.
They believe these half-truths.

But half-truths are lies!

These lie preachers read for example from the bible:

"For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest any man should boast."
(Ephesians 2/8-9)

(Reminder: Information about God's grace in the aforementioned cleartext point 137.)

The just read statement concerning the grace is absolutely correct - well I do not doubt this.
This means: We can still so much endeavour to get through good deeds to heaven -
but we will not succeed. Only through the forgiveness of sins (ie through faith in Jesus Christ)
we have been given (by God's grace) the possibility of having our sins "washed" off.

This is true one hundred percent, and every Christian needs to know - and believe it !

But we received the order to put his word into practice from Jesus Christ.
This implies that we must be doers of the word - otherwise, we deceive ourselves,
by believing that one enters heaven by faith in Jesus Christ alone.

"But be ye doers of the word and not hearers only; deceiving your own selves."
(James 1/22)

Although the preachers of the half-truths quote the just mentioned bible verse

(Ephesians 2/8-9),
the directly subsequent sentence they conceal.

It says:

"... created in Christ Jesus unto good works ..."
(Ephesians 2/10)

So we Christians have been so created by the Lord to do good works (deeds).

The deeds and works distinguish true Christians from the name-Christians (see cleartext point 098).

 

I know perfectly well that you can not enter heaven solely through good deeds -
(But by the crucifixion of Jesus) - but I also know and am aware
(Because it is clearly written in the Bible) that without good deeds
(Ie due to passivity), the path to heaven remains blocked !

Also, there won´t be an offset of good deeds and bad deeds,
to be allowed into heaven for a vast majority of good deeds.

Through good deeds, you can not earn the Kingdom of Heaven -
but by your passivity, you can lose it easily !

Jesus Christ, however, told us clearly ahead, that at the final judgment our
deeds and works are thrown into the "pan". Missing deeds mean:

End of the dream of everlasting life in paradise !

(Please read to reflect the aforementioned cleartext point 118)

This knowledge, I don´t want to withhold to the readers of this website, but convey it,
for it is the truth that everyone can read the bible - and should.


Important to know:

Why did Paul stress the issue that we are saved by grace in his letter to the Ephesians ?

"For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God,
not of works, lest any man should boast."
(Ephesians 2/8-9)

This sentence was written by him because many people thought
(And even today still think) that they could "earn" the kingdom of heaven by deeds and works.
But this is not possible !
Only through Jesus' death on the cross the way to God's kingdom was freed for us -
and this was done by the grace of our Lord.

 

But with a quotation from the bible that the preachers of the half-truths (which are active on behalf of Satan) like to use often, they manage quite easily to seduce millions of believers to passivity, so they do not act on behalf of God and Jesus.

That Jesus admonished us over and over again, to bear fruit for him,
put his words into action, to do the most good, not to be sluggish -
all these words of our Lord are wiped out with this bible quote by the countless preachers of half-truths, who are active on behalf of Satan.

The many other places in the New Testament, where it is written,
that we have to be active - ie to be doers of the word, are ignored.

It is also much more convenient to be bogged down in a bible quote,
allowing the passivity, than to note the much other uncomfortable
passages in which something from us is required.

Please read necessarily the cleartext point 187. Its title:
Why is the cleartext information on my website so often speaking about deeds and works ?

 

- 7 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

For a lively and genuine faith, it is necessary, that one follows
the Lord's words - will transpose them into action.
Abraham did this.

He obeyed the Lord - and showed him his obedience by deeds and works.

"Seest thou how faith wrought with his works, and by works was faith made perfect ?"
(James 2/22)

Important note: If you reread this quotation in the bible, you will find in the one before
the words: "... when he offered Isaac his son upon the altar ..." (James 2/21).

It must be said: Abraham did not sacrifice his son Isaac !
(Refer to the link:. Genesis 22/11-12)

 

Deeds and works are thus very, very important !

"For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also."
(James 2/26)

"Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."
(James 2/17)

 

I remember very well a half-truth, which I recently read in a brochure that accidentally fell into my hands. There was written that Jesus says to the people in John's Gospel 15/14:


"You are my friends !"

I always write bible quotations in red in my cleartext information.
This bible quote just mentioned but I have written deliberately in black,
because the exclamation point does not belong to this place.

This little stick with the point below (!)
changes a verse from the bible to a half-truth.

How should the original quotation from the bible look like ?
This is as we find it in the bible:

"You are my friends ..."
(John 15/14)

The testimony of Jesus goes namely even further - but very uncomfortable,
because Jesus links a condition to his friendship.

And that´s why the preachers of half-truths have simply embezzled the second part of
this quote (the condition).

Jesus says:

"Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you."
(John 15/14)

With explanations, this means:

"You are (only) my friends if ye do whatsoever I command you."
(If you put into practice what I tell you and ask you.)
(John 15/14)

By believing his words and implementing them into practice, you'll be a friend.

Only with the "put into action" you have fulfilled all the conditions for a genuine friendship with the Lord.

With this example, I wanted to show you as an introduction to this cleartext point,
how clever the lie preachers act.

In my cleartext information, I will whack you the words of God and Jesus Christ
in full "hardness" on the ears - or more gently said: to keep you in mind.

Although half-truths sound good - and go down like honey, they will not help you to change your life, so that you will be received by God and Jesus Christ in their eternal realm.

So be ready to receive the whole truth in this cleartext information.

"... O Lord GOD, thou art that God, and thy words be true ..."
(2 Samuel 7/28)

But that's why most people do not want to hear the word of God.
You namely cannot handle the truth !

"Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth ?"
(Galatians 4/16)

Yes, with the truth you make yourself enemies with almost everybody.

"For this they willingly are ignorant of ..."
(2 Peter 3/5)

Read on this subject please also the cleartext point 065:
Do the people ever want to hear the truth at all ?

 

- 8 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

Half-truths and gentle tones are welcome to the ears of the people.
But God's Word requires,
that you have to renounce cherished habits.
And nobody wants to hear this !

"... which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not ..."
(Ezekiel 12/2)

God has intentionally formulated the statements in his word (the bible),
that one only the one fully understands them, who
intensely and wholeheartedly
asks and searches God.

"... if thou seek him, he will be found of thee ..."
(1 Chronicles 28/9)

"... and if ye seek him, he will be found of you ..."
(2 Chronicles 15/2)

"... and sought him with their whole desire; and he was found of them ..."
(2 Chronicles 15/15)

So there are biblical quotations, which as a single sentence prevail
people in security and sound good and pleasant.
But God had it written this way on purpose,
so that he can check the people if they really care a lot about his
word, or whether they only listen to some preachers,
if it just gives way.

In several examples, you can read here in this cleartext point,
what is meant by half-truths.
There are real quotes from the bible - but tell only half the story.
The other half of the truth only experiences,
who seeks God with all his heart and with all his will !
So God can examine the people, whether they are serious.

The preacher of the half-truths use the positive parts from the Bible quotes,
but the negative phrases they do not mention,
in order not to scare or frighten the people.
For what paying members want to hear something that sounds uncomfortable,
what demands something or what frightens them ?

Hardly anyone would voluntarily go to such preachers,
let alone even pay dues.

So the preacher of half-truths do just that, what God actually forbids them !

The full truth is to be explained to people, even if it sounds uncomfortable and awful.

For how can people otherwise find out what will happen on the last day ?

And how are they to change their lives, so that Jesus Christ receives them on that day,
if no one explains what counts as a sin in the eyes of God and Jesus,
or what God and Jesus assessed as good and right.

"... priests ... they have put no difference between the holy and profane,
neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean ..."
(they don´t teach people seriously, what is good or evil before God.)
(Ezekiel 22/26)

God says to those who spread his word:

"Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you,
neither shall ye diminish ought from it (not omit) ... "
(Deuteronomy 4/2)

"What thing soever I command you, observe to do it: thou shalt not add thereto, nor diminish from it."
(Deuteronomy 12/32)

But the lie preachers fail to comply with this directive from God,
and preach only the melodious phrases -

"... that none doth return from his wickedness ..."
(Jeremiah 23/14)

That is namely the order, their "boss" gave them:

"But preaching only as this to the people ... in that none doth return from his wickedness."

Who their real "boss" is (if they do not serve God with the full truth of their preaching)
you'll now have certainly recognised yourself. They serve Satan !

God says:

"... the pastors also transgressed against me ..." (which should guard the sheep/people)
(Jeremiah 2/8)

These shepherds who should guard the flock (believers) of God and increase it,
drive the "sheep" directly into the arms of Satan by their half-truths.
They do this so well that people do not realise this themselves.
Finally, they were trained for it specially and have studied in detail:
How to influence people ...
How to manipulate them so that they do not notice it ...
How can you talk about the words of the bible so
that nobody feels "stepped on the toes" ...
How to reach it that you appear pious, although Satan is the principal ...

- 9 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

When the preacher of half-truths represent themselves as "pious", as "believers" or as "Christians" although they do not work for God but work for Satan,
then this is not surprising because even Satan disguises himself.

"... such are false apostles (Apostles are messengers that tell about God and Jesus)
deceitful workers (they spread God's Word not being honest)
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ (they claim they came on behalf of Jesus)."
(2 Corinthians 11/13)

"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
(2 Corinthians 11/14)

"Therefore it is no great thing (so it's nothing special) if his ministers
also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness ..."
(2 Corinthians 11/15)

 

The full truth of the bible does, unfortunately, almost always hurt.
But the painful truth is comparable to bitter medicine:
First disgusting - but if successful it will be praised and recommended.

So also my exhortations are initially disgusting and offensive.
But if you change your life so that God and Jesus are delighted by you,
and you'll be received in the paradise of God on Judgment Day,
then you realise that this "medicine" has saved you.

Therefore my request:
Swallow these bitter pills (the truth) that I offer you.
They will help you !

Half truths are only sweet tasting sleeping pills,
with which you shall be silenced,
in order not to be active for the Lord.

Please think exactly about who might have an interest,
you become passive (or stay passive).

God and Jesus don´t want this - but it is Satan´s endeavour !

 

The Lord wants to shake and startle his folks (including you),
so people turn away from their wrong path.

The clear object of the preacher is to point out the failures significantly to the listeners (or readers).


Only then they can change,
as the Lord expects and demands.

God gives us preachers the order:

"Cry aloud, spare not,
lift up thy voice like a trumpet
and shew my people their transgression, and ...
their sins !"
(Isaiah 58/1)

 

Crystal-clear, loud and definite words can not be misconstrued.
(A few lines deeper an example right away.)

The preacher, who only "sugarcoat" the people,
they obviously can not clearly warn their sheep.
Otherwise, they would scare and frighten their audience.

Then, however, it could happen that so many paying members
stampede at a run. And this risk those preachers don´t take.

Here's the just mentioned example:

People hear the word of God of the preachers of half-truths - but they do not realise
that these biblical quotations are only very individual fragments of God's Word -
like when someone calls out something during a strong wind.
For then not all the words make it to the target.
But this has dire consequences !

Just imagine that someone enters a frozen lake. A randomly
passing firefighter in uniform (ie recognised as an official person)
knows, however, that the ice is not viable since a few hours ago
there was a break in the ice already on the opposite bank.


The firefighter now wants to inform him
and calls during a storm:

"The danger is not to be underestimated, it is great !"

But as the wind tears away some important parts of the statement,
the man on the ice only hears:

"... Danger ... not ... great !"

He now is lulled into a false sense of security on the basis of this statement,
after all, those are the words of an official person in uniform.
So the fear is taken of him !

So the preachers of half-truths take away the fear of God from the people -
But precisely this fear of God is very important.

(Make sure to check this please in cleartext point 025.)

Believers are glad if they are offered some fragments from God's Word.
Thus they avoid having to do their own consuming search for the statements of the Lord.
But they have no idea that the euphonious bible quotations of lying preachers
lead them straight into the abyss - because they seduce to passivity.

The Lord hates passivity - and requires that we actively implement his word into practice.

Always keep the statement from the New Testament in mind:

"But be ye doers of the word and not hearers only; deceiving your own selves."
(James 1/22)

In order to recognise the Lord's will, it is very important,
that you care intensively about the words of God and Jesus Christ -
also about the uncomfortable Bible quotations, which are written for us as clear warnings.


Do not let be lulled in into a false sense of security with euphonious bible quotes.
Always think of the man on the ice. He also did not hear anything.

On this homepage, you find all necessary information in order to understand the words of the Lord.
You can get plenty of advice and food for thought here,
so you can be a doer of the Word.

In the Bible it says:

"Let him that hath understanding ..."
(Revelation 13/18)

So think through the words of the Lord - and then put them into practice.

"If now thou hast understanding, hear this (what the Lord has to tell you):
hearken to the voice of my words."
(Job 34/16)

 

The original pieces of information in the bible are very extensive. The listeners are told only the "shortened" version from the preachers of half-truths - and will therefore
"break in" quite miserably.(however only on the last day)

This can only prevent the one, which collects all information.
Only then you hear the warning calls of God and Jesus Christ not only as fragments,
but as clear warnings.
And only then can you protect yourself from impending doom.

Therefore, I have explained the warnings of God and Jesus in this cleartext information.
I have omitted nothing !
I have not whitewashed anything to make it sound good !
And I have no evil ulterior motives !

It is now solely up to you,
to take the warnings of God and Jesus Christ to the heart.

Let´s go to a happily preached half-truth.

Analogously, it is said:

"Whoever believes in God and in Jesus Christ, receives eternal life."

But is it really that simple ?

In cleartext point 015 you can find many biblical quotations,
which state the exact opposite. Its title is:
Is it really so difficult to obtain eternal life,
and actually only a few people reach the kingdom of God ?

However, since people like to hear what is easy for them - not demanding a lot,
they like to accept the half-truths of lying preachers.

The following sentence is often offered to them as a half-truth,
because the second - the subsequent verse is neglected.
Therefore, read both sets and let them sink in !

"He that believeth on the Son (Jesus Christ) hath everlasting life ..."
(John 3/36)

This way it sounds very pleasant !

But now the bomb comes, however not mentioned by the false preachers:

"... and he that believeth not the Son (Jesus Christ) shall not see (eternal) life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."
(John 3/36)

If both sets are read together - and are properly understood,
then the fear of God is supposed to arise in you.

(Please read about the fear of God necessarily in the aforementioned cleartext point 025.)

 

Let yourself not be showered by euphonious bible quotes only, because by that you're going to be seduced to passivity. Read the startling and uncomfortable sounding statements of the Lord, because through them you'll be motivated and "driven" to become active for the Lord -
as it is required of us. That's obedience !

Take the advice and admonitions of the Lord, which
he tells you through the Bible quotes - and put them into practice.

Do not be stiff-necked, and don´t turn your ears to "deaf".

God says:

"... which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not ..."
(Ezekiel 12/2)

Do not act as they do, but obey the Lord.

Please read necessarily the cleartext point 071. Its title:
Are we close to God and Jesus ? Do we obey them ?
For confirmation of their half-truth the lie preachers like to add the following sentence:
"To him (Jesus Christ) give all the prophets (Old Testament) witness,
that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins."
(Acts 10/43)

The sounds so easy - but it is not.

Why is it hard ?

Later in this cleartext point, you will find out.

- 12 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

Maybe you ask yourself too, why God allows it at all that his "sheep" are poached and dumbed down
with half-truths.

It's simple: God wants to check who wholeheartedly strives
to enter his kingdom - and who just followeth the "Pied Piper".

These languid people who do not care about God's he doesn´t want !

But the people who are trying to understand God's Word with all their heart, God opens their eyes and ears, so that they can distinguish between truth and half-truth.

God says:

"And ye shall seek me, and find me (then), when ye shall search for me with all your heart."
(Jeremiah 29/13)

God can close the human eyes and ears - or open them.
Please read the cleartext point 032.
Its title: Which people do not want God ?

"The hearing ear, and the seeing eye (receptive to God's Word),
the LORD hath made even both of them."
(Proverbs 20/12)


Very important in order to understand God's Word,
is the previously mentioned fear of God.
(Please absolutely read cleartext point 025.)

"And a certain woman ... heard us: whose heart the Lord opened,
that she attended (paid attention) unto the things which were spoken of Paul."
(Acts 16/14)

 

Pray to God that you will learn the fear of God,
and he "opens" your heart, your eyes and ears,
so his words find their way to you, and you can say:

"The Lord GOD hath opened mine ear ..."
(Isaiah 50/5)

- 13 -

Now follow more euphonious bible quotes,
which are willingly read by the preachers of half-truths,
because they are "music" in the ears of the "faithful" and "Christians":

"The Lord is good to all ..."
(Psalm 145/9)

"The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy."
(Psalm 103/8)

"But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting ..."
(Psalm 103/17 but the end of 17 and 18 they conceal.)

That was the half-truth, which doesn´t mention God's terms
or stresses them much.

In reality, the bible quotations go even further,
and importance is attached to emphasise this and to explain it.

The preachers of the half-truths just drop the second half of the full truth "under the table".
God namely imposes conditions for His grace:

"But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him ... To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments 
to do them."
(Psalm 103/17-18)


Please read about God's conditions for his grace the aforementioned cleartext point 137.

 

The fear of God is very important - and another condition for God's grace.

But that is gladly concealed by the preachers of half-truths.

(Read about the fear of God please the aforementioned cleartext point 025.)

"... so great is his mercy toward them that fear him."
(Psalm 103/11)

"Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee ..."
(Psalm 31/19)

"... so the LORD pitieth them that fear him."
(Psalm 103/13)

"All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies."
(Psalm 25/10)

So God's goodness is linked to conditions in many places in the word of God:

"... them that fear him."
(Psalm 103/17)

"... Keep his covenant ..."
(Psalm 103/18)

"... Remember his commandments,
to do them."
(Psalm 103/18)

 

If someone wants to serve God, then he (or she) can´t do it while sitting on a pew,
but must actually be working for God - so do something for God. And this doing
should not be a one-shot deal - but take place every day, always.

A short but important note in between:

At this point, I would like to recommend the cleartext point 182.
Its title: Bring new momentum into your community !

Motivate Christians who are with you together in the community,
that they become doers of the word. Explain to them how important it is for them.

If they don´t want to hear about it, then consider whether you
are in the wrong church. A congregation should namely attract you to deeds
and works - and not tempt you to inertia.

Optionally change the community.

If you don´t find any municipality that meets the conditions which you expect of a genuine,
active, Christian community, then consider, if it does not make sense
to set up a homegroup.

For it is better to search for new friends than to be
tempted to passivity and inertia by previous "friends".

(In cleartext point 172 you'll find information about: Create a homegroup.)

Following comes a bible quote which is liked to be read only halfway by the preachers of half-truths. They claim that God is gracious and merciful and that he said:

"... and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own ..."
(Malachi 3/17)

But the last part of the sentence, they like to swipe "under the table"
because if they would tell it, then they would admonish their "sheep" -
and they don´t want to offend the paying believers.

Who really wants to have eternal life in God's kingdom, must not
rely on any preacher, but has to read the Bible himself
and then find out, that this sentence also contains three other important words:

"... and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him."
(Malachi 3/17)

And then follows a hard-hitting statement:

"Then shall ye return (on Judgement Day), and discern between the righteous and the wicked,
between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not."
(Malachi 3/18)

In cleartext point 041 you can read about what it means to serve God.
And then you have to ask yourself the question (and of course to answer)
whether you serve God - or whether you're going through life with a religious painting.

 

Now comes another example of half bible quotes - hence half-truths.

Gladly the preachers of half-truths read the following sentence:

"... for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful,
and will not turn away his face from you ... "
(2 Chronicles 30/9)

That sounds reassuring and helpful in an emergency !

But this verse continues. The following is a condition for God's grace and mercy,
which is gladly concealed:

"... for the LORD your God is gracious and merciful,
and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto him."
(2 Chronicles 30/9)

And in this context, it looks quite different !

"... If ye return to him."
(2 Chronicles 30/9)

Turn to God means:

Wholeheartedly try to implement all his laws into action !

(Read about this please in the cleartext point 008)

- 15 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

The people who do not turn one hundred percent to God
(Ie they do not do what God requires) provoke him.
To them, God is not merciful !

"... and have returned to provoke me (God) to anger ...
Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare,
neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears
with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them."
(Ezekiel 8/17-18)

 

If you do not try wholeheartedly,
to live to one hundred percent by God's laws,
then you will be praying to God in vain,
or even cry - he won´t hear you:

"... and though they shall cry unto me, I will not hearken unto them."
(Jeremiah 11/11)

God says:

"Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer;
they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me."
(Proverbs 1/28)

"And ye shall cry out ... and the LORD will not hear you in that day."
(1 Samuel 8/18)

 

Become very cagey, if you are offered God's love and kindness without strings attached.
It then is a matter of lies !

God doesn´t set preconditions - but conditions:
namely the rejection of previous sinful lifestyles.

Otherwise, every war criminal, every murderer or child molester would enter
God's eternal kingdom together with you,
without regretting or changing anything in their lives.

You have to decide whom you want to believe more:
The lying preachers, which very "seriously" preach the word of God
and have many supporters - or Jesus Christ, Son of God.

Because if there were no conditions for the goodness of God,
then Jesus Christ would be a liar because he says:

"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction, and many (people) there be which go in thereat
(the wide and easy way) (eternal damnation):
Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto (eternal) life,
and (only) few (people) there be that find it (this narrow path to eternal life)."
(And then actually go on this way)
(Matthew 7/13-14)

 

Do you think that people (if there were no conditions) would be
too "stupid" to get into the kingdom of God ?
Jesus Christ added namely:

"Strive to enter in at the strait gate (into eternal life):
for many, I say unto you, will seek (will try) to enter in (God´s kingdom),
and shall not be able."
(Luke 13/24)

 

Jesus adds:

"... how hard is it ... to enter into the kingdom of God!"
(Mark 10/24)

So they fail God's terms !

- 16 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

Once people hear that something is exhausting, most turn on it.
So it is as well with the words of God and Jesus Christ.
When people hear (or read), that they have to change their lives
and refrain from pleasant things,
then they turn away.

"For some are already turned aside after Satan."
(1 Timothy 5/15)

"Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray ..."
(2 Peter 2/15)

Multiple times I mentioned the word conditions, which God sets in order to love us.
But which conditions are so important to him ?
Some you have already read in this cleartext point,
which are hid by the lie preachers, because they are uncomfortable
and therefore the people do not like to hear or read them:

- Fear God,

- Keep all his laws - and do not refuse some,

- Do not only read or listen to his words but put them into practice,

- And turn away from the sinful way to walk on God's narrow way.

This last point you're going to read in the following quotation from the bible.
It's a phrase which is preferred not to voice by the lie preachers.
They say that Jesus Christ forgives everyone their sins.
But that's only half the story !

In fact, God requires:

"... that they may return every man from his evil way;
that I may forgive their iniquity and their sin."
(Jeremiah 36/3)

 

Here we see clearly what distinct condition God sets,
so that the sins of us humans can be forgiven:
We must leave the former sinful way, and turn to God's way -
thus wholeheartedly strive to live according to God's will.

Then - and only then all our sins are forgiven by Jesus Christ -
those committed in the past, and the sins we will commit in
the future unintentionally.

"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, (so) that your sins may be blotted out ..."
(Acts 3/19)

(Please read the cleartext point 009, what it means to do honest repentance.)

 

Here's an important note:

There is a church (I especially do not want to name it), which persuades their "flock"
that the soul goes into purgatory after death to be purified from sin.
This statement you can´t find in the entire bible because it is not written there.
Purgatory is an invention of the Church - it is a lie.
With that, people are dumbed down, because after death there is no - absolutely
no possibility of ridding yourself of any sins.

Always remember that you only get your sins forgiven during your lifetime.

Therefore, regret them honestly and sincerely in prayer before Jesus Christ -
and then try with all your heart, not to repeat them.

"Repent ye therefore, and be converted, (so) that your sins may be blotted out ..."
(Acts 3/19)

- 17 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

To be converted from sin is difficult - I admit - for me as well.
But Jesus Christ has clearly foretold,
that it is difficult to get into God's kingdom.
Think of his words:

"... how hard is it ... to enter into the kingdom of God !"
(Mark 10/24)

(That it is actually indeed so difficult you experience
in the aforementioned cleartext point 015.)

Who is lying then, the preachers of half truths (claiming that God loves sinners) -
or Jesus Christ, who tells us that it is difficult to enter the kingdom of God ?

The answer is clear:

Jesus Christ tells us the whole truth because he is the Son of God !

The bible says on this subject:

"Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him?
When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD,
and he delighteth (" God loves sinners ".) in them;
or, Where is the God of judgment?" ( "God is merciful to all.")
(Malachi 2/17)

 

These are the two statements that the people often
are persuaded by lie preachers:
"God loves the sinners." - And: "God does not punish,
for he is gracious and merciful to all people. "

Such sayings arouse the anger of God.
He is gracious, that's true - but only to those who are
seeking wholeheartedly to live according to his word,
and also really like to put his word into practice.

If these people accidentally commit errors (ie accidentally sin)
then the Lord is gracious and merciful to them.

We shall know the truth about God's statements - and not melodious lies.

Please read about God's conditions for his grace the aforementioned cleartext point 137.

I also want to recommend the cleartext point 042. Its title: What kind of people does God love 

Its title: What kind of people does God love ?

Thus, the sermons about God loving sinners are lies.

Many Christians believe that Jesus loved sinners because he was often with them
composed to eat. They read this out of the following quotations from the bible:

"And it came to pass, as Jesus sat at meat in the house, behold, many publicans
and sinners came and sat down with him and his disciples.
And when the Pharisees saw it, they said unto his disciples,
Why eateth your Master with publicans and sinners?"
(Matthew 9/10-11)

 

But why did Jesus often sit together with sinners ?

Because he wanted to make them "healthy" - Jesus tried to explain them,
that they should repent of their sinful way and do righteous repentance.
Exactly this is apparent from the continuation of the recently read bible quotation:

"But when Jesus heard that, he said unto them,
They that be whole need not a physician, but they that are sick."
(Matthew 9/12)

Also in Mark, it is explained to us:

"And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners,
they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?
When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician,
but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance."
(Mark 2/16-17)

Jesus wanted to call the sinners - not to have fun with them,
but to admonish and to convert them repentance. Just, therefore,
he sat down with them - and not because Jesus loves sinners
as is so often claimed by the preachers of half-truths.

- 18 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

 

The truth is: He who sins deliberately, makes himself an enemy of God !

"For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth,
there remaineth (in the future) no more sacrifice for sins
(Jesus sacrifice on the Cross does not count),
but a certain fearful looking for of judgment
(In which Jesus Christ a just - will be tough as a judge)
and fiery indignation (hell), which shall devour the adversaries."
(Hebrews 10/26-27)

 

Please also read the cleartext point 165 about the topic: Deliberate sin.

How the "Dear God" really thinks about the sinners that he supposedly loves so much,
we should not allow ourselves to be told by the preachers of half-truths,
but read about it directly in the bible. There it is written:

"Therefore saith the Lord ... Ah, I will ease me of mine adversaries
(I will console myself by defeating my enemies),
and avenge me of mine enemies:"
(Isaiah 1/24)

 

I think that I will not have to explain in detail who are the enemies of the Lord.
Adversary (according to the dictionary referred to as enemies and opponents) are those
which always know better and constantly have excuses - just don´t do,
what the Lord tells them. But who are these enemies ?
The sinners.

God who supposedly loves sinners wants to get back at them ?

By this, you realise what nonsense the preachers of the half-truths utter.

God only loves sinners who wholeheartedly make an effort
to turn away from their sins - he only loves
the former sinner accordingly.

Don´t be persuaded by lie preachers otherwise.
They do not lead you out of the bondage of Satan -
On the contrary - they only lead you deeper into it.

- 19 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

A very bad half-truth is when the lie preachers say
that faith in Jesus Christ alone is sufficient, to inherit eternal life.

In the bible it is written:

"For God so loved the world (God so loved the people in this world)
that he gave his only begotten Son (Jesus Christ)
(Let him die on the cross for the forgiveness of sins),
that whosoever (is it enough to believe "in"?) believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life."
(John 3/16)

This sentence is correct and very important !
But only "to" believe it is not enough !

The preachers of half truths speak persuade men often that it is a convenient
ride or walk to get into God's kingdom.
They hide the fact that the Lord checks us "thoroughly" (see cleartext point 023),
that true faith is connected with personal sacrifices (see cleartext point 092),
and that true Christians are ridiculed, persecuted in many countries
even today and even killed.

 

In the bible, we find some quotes, which show at first glance,
that faith "in" Jesus Christ is enough to enter God's kingdom.

When I tell the readers of my website, that this is only half of the story,
then often begins the great astonishment - or even the "scolding" about
my comments in this regard.

But do my aforementioned biblical quotations contradict the truth ?

What is truth ?

Why are there quotes in the bible that make it appear at first glance,
that the bible contains contradictory statements ?

Therefore the following important statement:

In the bible you can find for example the call:

"... beat their swords into plowshares ..."
(Micah 4/3)

But you can also find the exact opposite:

"Beat your plowshares into swords ..."
(Joel 3/10)

Thus, God wants to give arguments to both groups:
the peaceful - and the violent - so you can decide freely,
whom you want to follow.

According to which of the two sets shall we live ?
What is right ?

Always that's right, which is present in a majority in the bible.

Do you find more calls for violence ?
Did Jesus go as a preacher of hatred through the area,
or has he called for charity ?
By far the greater number of passages urges us to charity.
So we should also follow this.

"... do no violence ..."
(Jeremiah 22/3)

- 20 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

In the bible, the following sentence is to be found:

"Take ye the spoil of silver, take the spoil of gold ..." 
(Nahum 2/9)

Opponents of the Lord can argue with this quotation from the bible,
that the bible encourages to robbery and theft.

But the majority of bible quotations clearly says:

"Thou shalt not steal."
(Exodus 20/15 and Deuteronomy 5/19)

"Ye shall not steal ..."
(Leviticus 19/11)

"... and I will cut off thy prey from the earth ..." 
(Nahum 2/13)

It is therefore always necessary to consider to what statement there are more biblical quotations. It does not happen that from one direction 17 citations,
and from the other direction, 16 citations are available.

But is it 17 to 2, then the decision is nevertheless clear - or not ?
Just as clearly, it is logically at a ratio of 80 to 20.

And so it is with the fear of God. Many, many times is explained in the bible that the
fear of God is helpful and useful. (Read this in the aforementioned cleartext point 025.
There you will also learn that there is a difference between anxiety and fear.)

What do you mean, how much do three or four biblical quotations "weigh",
where are we told that fear is bad ?

Important to know: In those quotations, which say that fear is
something bad, the useful god fear is not meant.

 

However, there is the following problem:

If someone has little knowledge of the bible because he (or she) rarely reads in God word,
how can he (or she) ever make a decision,
if the information obtained is consistent with the bible ?

Therefore read much and often in your bible.

If you say (or think) that you hardly have - or do not have time to read the bible
(And explanatory to this in the cleartext information), then I want to
recommend you the cleartext point 005.

Please find out in the cleartext point 003, how you can understand the bible as well.

- 21 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

Satan and his apostles (representing themselves as reputable preachers) want to prevent, that you receive eternal life in God's kingdom on the last day.
But how can they succeed with this ?

Simple: By convincing you, that you don´t have to do anything to enter into the kingdom of God.
They promise you hypocritically, that having faith "in" Jesus Christ alone is enough.

In aforementioned cleartext point 023 you can read that God checks everyone on this earth.
So he also checks if you believe, what other people tell you (for example, Ecclesiastes), or
if you read the word of God (the bible) intensively, in order to check if it's true what they have told you.

Do the same, what the early Christians did:

"... in that they received the word (of God) with all readiness of mind,
and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
(Acts 17/11)

God gave the lie preachers the opportunity to read a few sentences on this subject from the Bible.
You'll find biblical quotations, which give the impression that it is indeed sufficient consequently,
to meander through life as a passive person without having to do anything for the Lord.

Crucially, however (as mentioned above), is how many biblical quotations can be found on a specific topic.

If you read intensively in your bible and mark the corresponding bible passages
then you will clearly realise, that there are very, very many statements in God's Word,
that prompt us to activity (what Jesus commanded repeatedly).

But you can find a few statements that offer you the Kingdom of Heaven for doing nothing.

It is your free decision:

Do you believe in the few - or the numerous quotations from the bible ?

So do not let yourself be seduced to passivity by the preachers of the half-truths .
Jesus did not say that we should let his words trickle down on ourselves
to enjoy them - but he demanded that we should do what he says.

So do it - or leave it !

But know this: Your eternity depends on it !

- 22 -

True faith is not just a believing "in" Jesus, but it is more -
much more. It's waiver, persecution and suffering.

To be a Christian in this world is not honey or sugar-licking -
which Jesus has announced us in no uncertain terms. He says:

"Whosoever will come after me ... and take up his cross, and follow me."
(Mark 8/34)

"And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me."
(Matthew 10/38)

"If any man will come after me ... and take up his cross daily, and follow me."
(Luke 9/23)

"... If any man will come after me ... and take up his cross, and follow me."
(Matthew 16/24)

"And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me, cannot be my disciple."
(Luke 14/27)

Many who hypocritically call themselves "Christians," think: "Yes, yes, leave the cross and
if I feel like it, then I take it upon myself. "- But they do not take it upon themselves,
but try to enjoy life. After all, this is indeed "hammered" into the minds of the people in many slogans,
headlines and even in the sermons:

"Enjoy life ..."

or:

"Joy of life ..."

Just that people want to hear - so it is preached full-bodied !

Of course, the Lord does not mind if we feel joy.
But always think of Jesus' words:

"He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life
in this world shall keep it unto life eternal."
(John 12/25)

Who hates this life, will do his utmost,
to get eternal life in the kingdom of God,
where no shortage, where no tears flow
and in which there will be no pain and no suffering.

Please read also the cleartext point 149 entitled:
Should Christians renounce everything - and only "mope" ?

 

To carry his cross - that's something else than to carry full shopping bags
or to carry the hymnal to the worship and back home.

"For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ,
not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake."
(Philippians 1/29)

"... if so be that we suffer with him (with Jesus),
that we may be also glorified together."
(Romans 8/17)

So Never give up, because your efforts will be rewarded at the last day.

That has been promised you by God:

"Thus saith the LORD; Refrain thy voice from weeping, and thine eyes from tears:
for thy work shall be rewarded, saith the LORD ..."
(Jeremiah 31/16)


So obey the Lord, serve him and turn away from sin.
You're going to get the reward.

"Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous
and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him
that serveth him not."
(Malachi 3/18)

Which people are righteous in the eyes of God, you experience the cleartext point 047.

In the aforementioned cleartext point 041 you can read about what it means to serve God.

 

God and Jesus Christ want to see that we do honest repentance.

And we should try wholeheartedly,
to turn their words into action !

In cleartext point 006 you can experience the full truth
about the remission of sins through the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

In the bible, we are often warned by Jesus Christ:

"Behold ... Watch !"
(Revelation 16/15 and 25/13 Matthew and Luke 21/36)

- 23 -

A further set, which is often offered as a half-truth is written in Amos.
Believers are told that God will create a time, in which very many people
will be drawn to God's Word and will
like to read the bible and go to church.
But is this so ?

"Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land,
not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:"
(Amos 8/11)

But God's full truth continues otherwise than the lie preachers proclaim.
God adds further:

"And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east,
they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it."
(Amos 8/12)

Jesus wants to warn us of the people, which
seduce us by skillfully offering their lies.
Lies that are so cleverly "packaged", that we can hardly recognise them,
especially as they are read directly from the bible !
But how can such a thing be marketed as "scam" among the people ?

Simply and cleverly: By this "Herald" of God's Word, just
mentioning a few quotes from the Bible,
and then decorate them in the most beautiful colours.
Just as the people like to hear them.

And what do the people like to hear ?
That, what sounds credible, what doesn´t prompt a person to uncomfortable changes in life
and what "comes across" solemnly beautiful.

All these tricks (and much more)
are "mastered" by those heralds and preachers of God's word.

But people are also partly to blame,
when they fall for these half-truths.
Because the do not consider,
whether this was said indeed in God´s complete word.
They strap themselves to the few spoken sentences,
and then believe that those are really true.

Nowadays we have a great fortune, that we can check in the bible for ourselves,
what God and Jesus Christ have to say.
There are several benefits which people did not have earlier:

1. We can read.

2. The bible is written in the English language.

3. We have enough money to buy a bible.

4. We have sufficient time available to be able to read the bible.

If you say (or think) that you hardly - or do not have time to read the bible
(And explanatory to that in the cleartext information), then I want to
recommend you the aforementioned cleartext point 005.

Please read also the aforementioned cleartext point 003 to find out, how you
as well can understand the bible.

Use the possibilities that God gave you, to search the scriptures intensively for his word yourself and to understand accurately (without lie preachers) how you should live,
to be accepted into the eternal kingdom of God.

Half-truths don´t wake up anyone to get him (or her) on the right path.
On the contrary - they weigh the audience in security because they think, for their way of life
(which, however, is "lukewarm") they will nevertheless receive eternal life through the generosity of God and Jesus.


That this is not so, you'll know and acknowledge yourself if you´ll work through
all cleartext points bit by bit. In this cleartext information you find biblical quotations,
which can open thine eyes and ears for the word of God.

When there were no radio communications for the soldiers,
the trumpet was blown to pass each of the commands.
Each signal of this wind instrument meant something else:
For example, attack or retreat. But when the trumpet would have given a blurred sign
the soldiers would have stormed forward, although it was actually blown to retreat.
This would have meant the death of these soldiers.

So it is with God's Word. If these words are not clearly communicated to the audience,
then they do not know how they should behave, what also means certain death (no eternal life) !

Therefore you also won´t find restraint in me spreading God´s word.
God's word is to be communicated with all seriousness to the listeners (or readers).

"These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority ..."
(Titus 2/15)

But only strong words from the Bible help to fight
Satan´s temptations, seductions and temptations.

"For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound,
who shall prepare himself to the battle?"
(1 Corinthians 14/8)

People prefer to believe the lie preachers and the preachers of half-truths
because what they say, does not sound as uncomfortable and frightening as the pure truth.

In the cleartext points 025 (Godfear)
and 035 (Whose prayers does God not want to hear ?)
you can still recognise other differences,
between the "loving God" and our real God.

"... the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine ..."
(According to the motto: Everything will be fine.)
Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name ...
they prophesy unto you (who listens to the lie preachers) ...
And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem
because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them,
their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them."
(Jeremiah 14/13-16)


"And the prophets shall become wind, and the word is not in them ..."
(They do not speak that which God is really telling the people in his Word)
(Jeremiah 5/13)

 

"Thus saith the LORD of hosts,
Hearken not unto the words of the (those) prophets that prophesy unto you:
they make you vain ...They say still unto them that despise me (not comply with the laws of God) ...
Ye shall have peace (all is well); and they say unto every one that walketh
after the imagination of his own heart (who doesn´t accept advice),
No evil shall come upon you."
(According to the motto: "You don´t need to be in fear for Judgement day.")
(Jeremiah 23/16-17)

- 25 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

These false prophets (the lying preachers) offer a "loving God",
which allows the people to "do as they please".
They say: "... that the" Dear God "loves all people,
no matter how much sin they carry around with them.
The "Dear God" is gracious and does not reject the sinner. "

But what is the inconvenient truth ?

The Lord loves sinners only when they are ready to turn from their sinful way,
and then wholeheartedly try not to repeat their sins.

We can read in the bible that God forbids, to manipulate the weight or the length dimension.
What this means is that the dealer shouldn´t their clients.
What is dismissed by some people as a bagatelle (the scam packages, which suggest
the buyer to have more content in them and the use
of scales that are not calibrated), is an abomination to God.

Thus it is clearly said that God does not love sinners who cling to their sin.

"Thou shalt not have in thy bag divers weights, a great and a small.
Thou shalt not have in thine house divers measures, a great and a small.
But thou shalt have a perfect and just weight, a perfect and just measure
shalt thou have: that thy days may be lengthened in the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee.
For all that do such things (use an unjust weight or measure),
and all that do unrighteously,
are an abomination unto the LORD thy God."
(Deuteronomy 25/13-16)


Therefore do not believe, what the preachers of half-truths try to convince you of,
but inform yourself what is written in God's Word (the Bible).

"The anger of the LORD shall not return (from those who do not implement his words into action), until he have executed (until he realises it),
and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart (what he has set out to do):
in the latter days (on the last day, at the final judgment)
ye shall consider it perfectly (But then it's too late!)."
(Jeremiah 23/20)


God says:

"But if they (the preachers) had stood in my counsel (If they had come in my order),
and had caused my people to hear my (admonitory) words,
then they should have turned them from their evil way (life),
and from the evil of their doings."
(Jeremiah 23/22)

"Is not my (honest) word like as a fire? saith the LORD;
and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?"
(But the mendacious "Word of God" of the lying preachers is as sweet as honey.)
(Jeremiah 23/29)

 

"Surely your turning of things upside down ..."
(How you change God´s honest word and turns it into lies !)
(Isaiah 29/16)

Thus saith the Lord:

"... speak ... all the words that I command thee to speak unto them;
diminish not a word (don´t preach them only half of the truth):
If so be they will hearken,
and turn every man from his evil way ..."
(Jeremiah 26/2-3)

"Behold, ye trust in lying words, (on half-truths) that cannot profit.
(These half-truths do not motivate you to turn away from the sinful life.)
And come and stand before me in this house,
which is called by my name (Gotteshaus / a german word for church/house of the Lord),
and say, We are delivered (according to the motto: The "dear God" protects us !)
to do all these abominations (you sin on)?
Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes?
Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD."
(Jeremiah 7/8-11)


But what will happen to those who preach the half-truths ?
The answer is found in the bible:

"... for every man's word shall be his burden;
for ye have perverted the words of the living God ..."
(Jeremiah 23/36)

"... If any man shall add unto these things (falsehoods about God's Word),
God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book (Revelation):
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy (as with the half-truths),
God shall take away his part out of the book of life ..."
(The one will not get eternal life in God's kingdom.)
(Revelation 22/18-19)

"How do ye say, We are wise, and the law of the LORD is with us?
(How can you have the opinion that you know what God has to say to you ?)
... Lo, certainly in vain made he it; the pen of the scribes is in vain ...
from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.
For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly,
saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
(They say, "God has made peace with the people He loves them all.")
... nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush:
therefore shall they fall among them that fall:
in the time of their visitation (on the last day) they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.
I will surely consume them, saith the LORD ...
and the things that I have given them shall pass away from them."
(Jeremiah 8/8-13)

- 26 -

Think always about the warning:

"For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth,
there remaineth (in the future) no more sacrifice for sins
(Jesus sacrifice on the Cross does not count),
but a certain fearful looking for of judgment
(In which Jesus Christ a just - will be tough as a judge)
and fiery indignation (hell), which shall devour the adversaries."
(Hebrews 10/26-27)


Thus, the sermons that God loves sinners are lies.

And the statement that Jesus sacrificed his life for the forgiveness of our sins on the cross,
applies only on the condition that the sinner strives wholeheartedly,
not to repeat the sins.

God compares those who want to hide their sins under the blood of Jesus on the cross,
with people who have built a wall - a wall of sins. This wall of sins separates them from God.

God, the Lord, compares the preachers of the half-truths (and those who believe their lie sermons) with people who cover up this wall with white lime (so they paint it) to make it clean
and shine bright, though the sins are still hidden underneath.

However, the Lord sees these hidden sins - and is very angry, burning with anger.

He speaks:

"Because, even because they have seduced my people (with their half-truths),
saying, Peace; and there was no peace (between God and sinners);
and one built up a (sin) wall, and, lo, others (the lie preachers) daubed it
with untempered morter (to cover the sins):
Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter (shiny white),
that it shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower;
and ye, O great hailstones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.
(On the last day, before the final judgment the whited wall will
lose its lovely colour, so that the dirty sins become visible.
But then it is too late to change anything !)
Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you,
Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a stormy wind in my fury;
and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine anger,
and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.
So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered morter,
and bring it down to the ground,
so that the foundation thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall,
and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof:
and ye shall know that I am the LORD. Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall,
and upon them that have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you,
The wall is no more, neither they that daubed it;"
(Ezekiel 13/10-15)

What kind of anger the so-called "dear God" carries in himself,
the following lines illustrate:

"God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth,
and is furious; the LORD will take vengeance on his adversaries, and he reserveth wrath for his enemies."
(Nahum 1/2)


"It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
(Hebrews 10/31)

Who are his enemies and adversaries?
The people who are not willing to implement all his laws into action.
It does not matter how "religious" and "faithful" these people feel.
All this does not count if a rejection against one or more laws
comes from the "faithful" or "Christian".
God doesn´t tolerate this !

"Who can stand before his (God´s) indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger?
his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him."
(Nahum 1/6)

"Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err,
that bite with their teeth, and cry, Peace (according to the motto: ".. God is not angry, he loves every sinner");
and he that putteth not into their mouths (if you don´t pay for their lie sermons), they even prepare war against him."
(Micah 3/5)

"... and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money
(So they are saying exactly what people want to hear, after all, they are paid by the people for it.):
yet (nevertheless) will they lean upon the LORD, and say, Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us."
(According to the motto: "We are protected by the loving God.")
(Micah 3/11)

"For the priest's lips should keep knowledge, and they should seek the law at his mouth
(The priest shall men preach the truth): for he is the messenger of the LORD of hosts."
(Malachi 2/7)


"But ye (priests) are departed out of the way (you are bad role models and preach only half-truths)ye have (thereby) caused many (people) to stumble at the law ..."
(Malachi 2/8)

 
"Therefore have I also made you contemptible and base before all the people,
according as ye have not kept my ways, but have been partial in the law."
(Malachi 2/9)

Many people turn away from the faith, because they consider the "shepherds" of "sheep" as something, not worth pursuing. These "wolves in sheep's clothing" bring God's way into disrepute, by their bad example. So God's word is increasingly ridiculed and blasphemed.
(Read this information in the cleartext point 108.)

All people who see such bad examples,
do not feel drawn to God.

The lie preachers claim that through the crucifixion of Jesus Christ
everyone was forgiven his sins.
But that's only half of the story !

Read please the aforementioned cleartext points 006 and 009.

The lie preachers do not ask for a tough turning from sin.
But God requires exactly this turning away from sinful life.

"Ye have wearied the LORD with your words. Yet ye say, Wherein have we wearied him?
When ye say, Every one that doeth evil is good in the sight of the LORD,
and he delighteth in them; (The lie preachers say namely: "God loves even the sinner.")
or (it is said), Where is the God of judgment?"
(They doubt that God punishes "small" sins.)
(Malachi 2/17)

 

But in aforementioned cleartext point 008 you can just read this:
there is no difference between "large" and "small" sins for God.
For him, the backbiting weighs as heavy as murder.
Read about it there in more detail, please.

Jesus Christ says to the lie preachers and the preachers of the half-truths:

"... for ye neither go (get) in (the kingdom of heaven) yourselves,
neither suffer ye them (people) that are entering to go in."
(Matthew 23/13 and Luke 11/52)


The people who really want to learn how to get into God's kingdom,
are not explained honestly. Otherwise, they would have to preach the complete departure
from sinful life. And they don´t !

Do not trust the lie preachers and the preachers of the half-truths !
Read for yourself, what God and Jesus have to tell you.
Explanatory to that I have written this cleartext information for the people, who
really want to get into the kingdom of God on Judgment Day.

And if you have understood what is written in God's Word, then do not let yourself again
poach of the true doctrine by half-truths and the doubts of others.

"... for I trust in thy (God´s) word."
(Psalm 119/42)

Since I have the fear of God, and also know what awaits me on the last day,
if I would solicit only one "sheep" of God's flock,
therefore you need not worry, that I will disseminate lies or half-truths.
I do not want to be confusing you,
nor leading you "astray" (as mentioned in the following quote from the bible)
but I would like to honestly explain the way, which
will lead you into God's kingdom.

Believe me: there is no other way !

- 29 -

"I have confidence in you through the Lord, that ye will be none otherwise minded:
but he that troubleth you shall bear his judgment, whosoever he be."
(Galatians 5/10)

This is the threat that I just meant. This threat I take very seriously.

Take care yourself intensely and wholeheartedly about
what is written in God's word, and really put it then into action.
And don´t "push" any of God's laws aside, because it seems inconvenient to you.
Otherwise, you will not get eternal life in God's kingdom !

God says:

"My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds (preachers of half-truths)
have caused them to go astray ..."
(Jeremiah 50/6)


Don´t let yourself seduce you by the lie preachers.
Do not take the "sweet snacks" which they offer you.

"The words of a talebearer (the lying preacher) are as wounds,
and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly."
(Proverbs 26/22)


The laws of God, which are written in the Old Testament,
continue to apply to us humans.

If the lie preachers claim that through the crucifixion of Jesus Christ
all sins are forgiven, and people are therefore exempt from the law of God,
then they preach only half-truths.

In the New Testament (after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ) was clearly stated:

"Do we then make void the law (of God) through faith (by faith "in" Jesus Christ)?
God forbid: yea, we establish the law."
(Romans 3/31)

"What shall we say then? Shall (may) we continue (remain) in sin, that grace may abound?
God forbid (No way !). How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?"
(Romans 6/1-2)

"What then? shall (should) we sin, because we are not under the law,
but under grace (through the forgiveness of sins) ? God forbid.(No way !)"
(Romans 6/15)

"What shall we say then? Is the law sin? (Is the observance of the law something wrong?)
God forbid. (No way !)
Nay, I had not known sin, but by the law: for I had not known lust,
except the law had said (Exodus 20/17), Thou shalt not covet."
(Romans 7/7)


Read please the cleartext point 125.
Its title: Is the Old Testament still valid ?

- 30 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

Often people say:

"The Old Testament laws no longer apply."

Many believers relate to a few statements that they
the preacher of the half-truths of the bible aloud.
Such is found in the epistle to the Romans:

"For Christ is the end of the law; whoever believes in him who is righteous."
(Romans 10/4)

These are some important information:

Jesus Christ told us exactly who he considers a just -
namely, those who were active in his earthly life and doing good.

Jesus described us as at the final judgment (see cleartext point 118)
the judgment is talking - what kind of people he sees as righteous,
he wants to have in his eternal kingdom (in paradise).

Jesus' words:

"When the Son of Man (Jesus Christ) will come (back to earth)
in his glory and all the angels with him,
then he will sit on his glorious throne,
and all peoples (hence the term: Doomsday)
will be gathered before him.
And he will separate from each other (it is the human sorting)
as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats ... "
(Matthew 25 / 31-33)

There will then be only two groups:
Some who receive eternal life in God's Kingdom -
and the remaining people will be rejected by the Lord.

Like a shepherd separates the sheep from each other (sorts)
so Jesus Christ will separate the people.
Some he will want to have for his kingdom.

He says to them:

"For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.
I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink.
I was a stranger and you welcomed me.
I was naked, and you clothed me.
I was sick, and ye visited me.
I was in prison, and ye came unto me."

Then the righteous will ask him: "Lord when we have done that for you ?"

The answer of Jesus is:

"What you did for one of these my brethren (your fellow man)
you did it to me."

Then he will say to the many other people:

"Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire,
prepared for the devil and his angels!
For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat.
I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink.
I was a stranger and you did not welcome me.
I was naked, and you did not clothe me.
I am sick and in prison and you did not visit me."

Also, they will ask him: "When should have been that ?"

Then he will answer them:

"Verily I say unto you:
What you did not do one of these least, ye did it not to me."

And they will go away into eternal punishment (eternal damnation)
but the righteous into eternal life.
(Matthew 25 / 35-46)

In cleartext-point 047 you'll find detailed information, who is righteous.

Please, work necessarily through the cleartext point 017.
Its title: Not to do something, can even be a sin !

The preachers of the half-truths read the faithful a few passages from the New Testament,
and then claim that God's law is no longer valid since Jesus' birth and crucifixion.

For example, they use the bible quote already mentioned:

"For Christ is the end of the law ..."
(Romans 10/4)

But why Paul writes something to the Romans ?

For this you should know the following:

Paul then had to deal with people who today would be called a fanatic
(For example, the scribes, the chief priests and the Pharisees). They held
strictly to the laws of the Old Testament to the obedience to God
Himmelreich "deserve" to. Before the birth of Jesus and his crucifixion, people should
Namely downright "earn" the kingdom of heaven through good, godly behaviour.

But since every man sins, (no matter how hard he tries), it was not possible,
God absolutely (ie total) to please.

Therefore, God sent his Son Jesus Christ to the earth, so that he
should pay instead of us the punishment of sinners.

Jesus did this by himself (although he was complete without sin) sinners
kill on the cross was - so to speak, on behalf of each one of us.
By this (ie, by the blood of Jesus) our sins were "washed" off.

Why there was no other way for God than to sacrifice his son,
you can read in detail in cleartext point 006.

- 31 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

Since Jesus´ crucifixion, we must no longer "earn" the kingdom of heaven,
because that would not be feasible. By grace, God gave us the opportunity
to have our sins "washed" off through the blood of Jesus.

This is the Gospel - translated: the good news.

Important to know: but God wants to see, that we always
strive wholeheartedly to stay away from sin.

Since we never fully succeed because of Satan's influence, we may
ask the Lord Jesus Christ in prayer for forgiveness of our sins.

Please read on this topic, the cleartext point 009 (repentance).

Many of the people at that time (for example, the scribes, priests and Pharisees)
did not believe the gospel. They could not imagine that Jesus' blood washes off our sins.
They denied even that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, who was to be sacrificed on the cross for our salvation.


They continued accordingly to represent the opinion, that the law of the Old Testament
must be adhered absolutely to the letter, to the tiniest little thing -
otherwise one could not get in God's kingdom.

So that the people should understand that now a new era has begun, the apostles said and wrote,
that the law was ended by Jesus' birth and crucifixion.

With their statements, they did not want to create a legal vacuum, where everyone can do
what he wants, but they declared that one can not earn the kingdom of heaven by good deeds and works, because our sins separate us from God.
These sins can be washed off only through the blood of Jesus.

The statements of the apostles, however, are now used by the preachers of half-truths
to entice Christians (in the spirit of Satan) to passivity, indifference,
inertia and lucre - according to the motto:

"No one has to do something to get into heaven because this is done automatically by faith."

They dumb down their listeners by only partially read quotations from the bible:

"He that believeth on the Son (Jesus Christ) hath everlasting life ..."
(John 3/36)

That sounds good - but now (in the same bible quote), the important warning that they conceal:

"... and he that believeth not the Son (Jesus Christ) shall not see (eternal) life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."
(John 3/36)

- 32 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

 

In the bible, we are not asked for passivity and disobedience
to the Lord, when there is the talk of the end of the law.

Always remember the many statements that ask us to in a way,
that God and Jesus have joy in our behaviour. But this is
only possible if we know what God and Jesus like -
and that is, what has been written down for us in God's laws.

So do not let the letters in the New Testament confuse you,
in which Paul, for example, speaks of the end of the law.
It was Paul who wrote,

"Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good."
(Romans 7/12)

The law is meant to provide a directive for us to know,
which is the will of the Lord.

Always remember the important statement of Jesus Christ:

"Think not that I am come to destroy the law,
or the prophets (ie, the Old Testament): I am not come to destroy,
but to fulfil (the law and the prophecies)."
(Matthew 5/17)

 

If you read something in the Letters of the New Testament that confuses you,
then simply ask yourself what Jesus Christ has preached in this regard and has exemplified us.This can be read in the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke and John).
There you will find the testimony of Jesus Christ - and they are valid -
they always take precedence over all other statements !

 

Important:

In cleartext point 129 I summarised the laws,
which were preached and personally performed by Jesus Christ.

Thus, when reading the cleartext point 129, think of this:
All these laws were preached by Jesus Christ and written down in the New Testament.
As a result, the New Testament reaffirms many of the Old Testament laws.

Therefore, please read these laws of Jesus - and then try with all of your heart
to put them into action, for that is the will of the Lord.

Only this transformation into the act shapes you into a real Christian.

Otherwise, in the eyes of the Lord, you are merely a Christian (see cleartext point 098).

 

The fact is: by good deeds alone you can not get to heaven -
But by the crucifixion of Jesus.
The fact is also (because Jesus Christ clearly said it)
That without good deeds (ie passivity)
The way to heaven is blocked to you !

(Please read the cleartext point 001 how you will be saved on the last day.)

 

It will not help you if you are discussing this topic.
We must believe Jesus' words one hundred percent. Jesus Christ
is not an apostle, nor a prophet, but the son of God. So he knows
exactly how we get to paradise - and he told us.

Either you believe it - or you are a unbeliever.

And what happens to the unbelievers, Jesus also explained:

"But the fearful, and unbelieving (including the doubters) ...
shall have their part (their share, their future)
in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone ..."
(Revelation 21/8)


If we stick to Jesus' words and put them into practice, then
he is our friend, and then his crucifixion is for our salvation.

Jesus' statement in this regard:

"Ye are my friends, if ye do whatsoever I command you."
(John 15/14)

John the Baptist tells us the following:

"... and he that believeth not the Son (Jesus Christ)
shall not see (eternal) life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."
(John 3/36)

God and Jesus Christ definitely do not want us to have endless discussions
about their word, but we should put the words of the Lord Jesus into action -
thereby we automatically fulfil God's laws.

In the New Testament of the bible, all preachers receive a clear and unambiguous mission:

"This is a faithful saying, and these things I will that thou affirm constantly,
that they which have believed in God might be careful to maintain good works.
These things are good (for the "doing" Christian because God so desires it)
and profitable unto men (also the others)."
(Titus 3/8)


We Christians should, therefore, put God's law into action in the form of works,
and not discuss it. The Lord needs perpetrators of the Word - and no
"babblers", which "smart-talk" all others, but do nothing themselves.

"But avoid foolish questions (for example, whether the sabbath is on Friday, Saturday or Sunday), and genealogies, and contentions, and strivings about the law
(fulfil the law, by doing good - instead of discussing it);
for they are unprofitable and vain."
(Titus 3/9)

(For the sabbath, I recommend the cleartext point 152.)

Again in short form:

"... avoid foolish questions ... and strivings about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain."
(Titus 3/9)


Very peculiar is the following:

Numerous preachers of the half-truths claim that since Jesus' birth
only the New Testament is valid. But if they find biblical quotations in the Old Testament,
that fit into their concept, they use them, to reaffirm their arguments. They talk the way it suits them.

Please read in the cleartext point 117, how the preachers of the lie also "delude" people,
that their dear departed would already be in paradise with God.
They spread such lies because it comforts the bereaved.
This is exactly what the "believers" want to hear. So this desire is fulfilled. 
Most important is, that the "cash register rings". The financial benefits are more important to the preachers than the full truth about God.

Warning:

Do not let yourself persuade, that the preachers are always right.
Often they are talking about what the people want to hear.

The believers` demand:

"... Prophesy not unto us right things, speak unto us smooth things ..."
(Isaiah 30/10)

In God's Word we are clearly warned:

"For the time will come when they (the people) will not endure sound doctrine
(the truth that leads them to salvific conversion); but after their own lusts shall
they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth ..."
(2 Timothy 4/3-4)


Many preachers do not tell man what God and Jesus Christ demand from us,
but they preach exactly that, with what the church has been able to keep the faithful "quiet" for centuries.
They should feel comfortable in the church,
because they pay their church taxes.

So they gladly like to preach something which is not written in the bible.
This would be, for example, praying to Mary and to saints. Or that one has
to see a priest to confess. Also on offer:
One may call the Pope "Holy Father".

Cleartext point 102: Should people go to the priest for confession ?

In the bible, it is not written that we are to do the just-enumerated,
but that we should not do it.

But preachers are pretending their words to be based on God and Jesus Christ -
Which is often not the case.

About this we are warned in God's word:

"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit,
after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."
(Colossians 2/8)

The preachers claim that their statements agree with that,
what the angels have announced. If this is preached only often
and long enough, then the "sheep" believe it.
(To avoid saying "the stupid sheep").

The clever "sheep" read, however, in their bible, whether this is true,
what the preachers want to persuade them - just as people did in the ancient days.

"... in that they received the word (of God) with all readiness of mind,
and searched the scriptures (the bible) daily, whether those things were so."
(Acts 17/11)


We should not worship angels, nor rely on prophecies of angels,
But solely on the word was written down in the bible-
For that is from God.

With the alleged angels` statements, Satan can really dumb us down.
Always remember the warning from God's Word:

"... for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
(2 Corinthians 11/14)

"Therefore it is no great thing (that's why it's nothing special)
if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness ..."
(2 Corinthians 11/15)


We should not get involved with preachers who have "seen" something,
And not with those who disseminate such information,
which do not agree with the word of the bible.

"Let no man beguile you of your reward (the eternal life in God's kingdom)
in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels,
intruding into those things which he hath not seen,
vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind ..."
(Colossians 2/18)


The preachers often ask the believers to do something that is not
written down in the word of the bible.

"Wherefore if ye be dead with Christ from the rudiments of the world
(If you accept Jesus' death in the cross for the forgiveness of your sins),
why, as though living in the world ... (The preachers demand of you:)
"You shall not touch that, you shall not cost that, you should not touch this."
... after the commandments and doctrines of men?
Which things have indeed a shew of wisdom in will worship, and humility ..."
(Colossians 2/20-23)

 

The preachers often cause the faithful a guilty conscience,
although there is no reason to do so.

"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."
(Colossians 2/16)

But what is really important, namely, that we should become perpetrators of the word,
the preachers often conceal - because it is uncomfortable -
because this the believers do not want to hear.

Please also read the already mentioned cleartext-point 065. Its title:
Do people want to hear the truth at all ?

- 35 -

⇑ Here back to top of page ⇑

Take the advice of Jesus Christ and examine the words and statements
of people who want to tell you something about God.
Often, they preach only half-truths.
But half truths are also lies !

"... and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles (preachers of God's Word)
and are not, and hast found them liars."
(Revelation 2/2)

 

You as well recognise the lie preachers,
so that you do not follow them out of ignorance or indifference.
You would not get in God's kingdom on the last day.
But you know yourself where you would get !

"For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they ( "believers")
that are led of them (by the prophets of falsehood) are destroyed."
(Isaiah 9/16) 


"... priests ... have put no difference between the holy and profane,
neither have they shewed difference between the unclean and the clean ..."
(They do not seriously teach people what is good or evil before God.)
(Ezekiel 22/26)

Do not be someone who relies upon what other people want to tell you.
Be suspicious !

Read for yourself in your bible what God and Jesus have to say to you !
Do not let yourself be taken away from the real way of God.
Many people (according to Jesus Christ)
go on the broad, but false path directly into eternal damnation.
You will also find out about this in the above-mentioned cleartext point 015.

I would like to mention the following biblical quote because it is so startling:

"Behold, ye trust in lying words (on half-truths), that cannot profit ...
(These half-truths do not motivate you to turn away from sinful life.)
... and come and stand before me in this house, which is called by my name (house of the Lord),
and say, We are delivered to do all these abominations? (you sin further)
(According to the motto: "The dear God" protects us!)
Is this house, which is called by my name, become a den of robbers in your eyes?
Behold, even I have seen it, saith the LORD."
(Jeremiah 7/8-11)


If I should have "shocked you" now, this only occurs to you,
because you may not have heard (or read) so much openness about God's Word in your life.
But what should I do ?
It is after all the pure truth !
And that must be published.
This is what God and Jesus Christ demand.

"This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith;
(So that they have a healthy faith)
Not giving heed to Jewish fables, and commandments of men, that turn from the truth."
(Titus 1/13-14)


Do not listen to the lie preachers, for they have turned away from the truth.

"These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you."
(1 John 2/26)

Please read also the cleartext point 105 on this topic:
Why does every church or religious community claim,
that it spreads the right doctrine ?
And 107: How do you recognise true ambassadors and proclaimers of God's word ?

Please also read the cleartext point 140. Its title:
Many believers are led (without noticing) down the "garden path".

Now one more warning of Jesus, with which he wants to open our eyes.

Please do not think that it is an invention of mine,
that there are false preachers and preachers of half-truths,
who perform their ministry in the name of Jesus.

Jesus Christ already said clearly that many "shepherds" are convinced,
that they have preached their "little sheep" the right thing, and have done them good,
when they healed them of diseases or expelled them from evil spirits,
for they did all this in the name of Jesus Christ.

Jesus' words:

"Many (priests, pastors, and preachers) will say to me in that (last) day,
Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils?
and in thy name done many wonderful works?
And then will I (Jesus Christ) profess unto them,
I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
(Matthew 7/22-23)


So do not believe the preachers of the half-truths - no matter how many miracles they perform.
Their "tricks" have nothing to do with Jesus Christ. They serve "the god of this world"
(the satan). They want to transform the true believers to be passive "name Christians"
(therefore to unbelievers).

"In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not ..."
(2 Corinthians 4/4)


Satan gives these preachers the ability to do miraculous miracles,
to be able to fool people, to be on the mission of the Lord.

Always remember the warning:

"For such are false apostles (apostles are messengers who report on God and Jesus),
deceitful workers (they do not spread God's word honestly),
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ (they claim that they came from Jesus)."
(2 Corinthians 11/13)

 

"And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light."
(2 Corinthians 11/14)

"Therefore it is no great thing (that's why it's nothing special)
if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness ..."
(2 Corinthians 11/15)

"For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ,
but their own belly;
and by good words and fair speeches
deceive the hearts of the simple."
(Romans 16/18)


Jesus Christ explained to us many things by means of easy-to-understand words,
which we can read in the bible. We know that what he was talking about,
was always the full truth - for Jesus said:

"To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world,
that I should bear witness unto the truth."
(John 18/37)

Jesus says:

"I am the way, the truth, and the life ..."
(John 14/6)

"... and the truth shall make you free."
(John 8/32)

Let yourself be set free through the full truth (through
Jesus Christ and his honest words).

If you have recognised and understood this, please help actively that other people
can read the jolting words in this cleartext info. How this is possible quite simply,
but very efficiently, you will find out in the following lines.
That way you too can serve the Lord with the deed !

Your mission, which Jesus gave you in the form of the great commission:

(For detailed information on the great commission, please refer to cleartext point 030.)

If you are a true Christian (or want to be), then Jesus gave you the order,
to spread his word.

Jesus Christ spoke to his disciples (as a Christian you too are a disciple of Jesus):

"Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature."
(Mark 16/15)

(This is done through this homepage - and you can help !)

"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations ... Teaching them
to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you ..."
(You do this with your donation when people read this homepage.)
(Matthew 28/19)


And in the following sentence Jesus Christ gave to those,
who spread his word, a promise:

"... and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen."
(Matthew 28/20)

This promise also applies to you !

Is there anything better than to know Jesus Christ every day at his side ?

Therefore my request: Help also to spread God's word !

If you click on the link (a few lines below) you find out how
you can help financially, that the pure truth is made accessible to people
in easily understandable words (through this homepage).

Your money does not flow into "dark channels" or into prestigious material prestige objects,
but is used for advertising this homepage on the internet
(Ie for God's enlightening words).

Be a true Christian, not a "name Christian".

(What a name Christian is, you can read it in the already mentioned cleartext-point 098.)

The name Christians think that they are loved by God and Jesus, despite their passivity
and be allowed into the kingdom on the last day.
But they deceive themselves:

"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."
(James 1/22)

Jesus reproaches the people:

"... and yet none of you keepeth the law?"
(John 7/19)

Be one of the few exceptions,
by doing what the Lord tells you !

Jesus Christ will speak tough to the name Christians on the day of judgment:

"Verily I say unto you, I know you not."
(Matthew 25/12)

"I know you not whence ye are ...
depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity."
(Luke 13/25-27)

"And then will I (Jesus Christ) profess unto them,
I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
(Matthew 7/23)


So if you want to fulfil the mission of Jesus as a true Christian,
to spread his word, then try the following:

Explain to the people in front of a supermarket or in a park God's Word.
What do you think how many people would stop to listen to you ?

50 ?

100 ?

Or even 1,000 ?

But with each 40 cents, it is guaranteed to bring a new reader to this homepage.

This is the advantage of the special internet advertising "Google AdWords".
It must be paid only on success. Exact info in this regard you can get
if you click the donation link (a few lines below).

You do not help with this donation, that I live a "dolce vita", or
buy the latest car (I do not drive a car anymore because of the environment), but
you're funding Google AdWords to bring readers to this site,
so that they may know the words of God and Jesus.

By doing this, you will be active for God and Jesus - so you become a perpetrator of the Word.

You then serve God and Jesus - just as the task of a true Christian is.

Jesus Christ said to his disciples Simon (Peter) and Andrew:

"... I will make you fishers of men."
(Matthew 4/19 and Mark 1/17)

So I ask you: Be also a "fisher of men" !

"And he brought him to Jesus."
(John 1/42)

Lead also men to Jesus Christ and to His Word.

"... and much people was added unto the Lord."
(Acts 11/24)

You too can help to win many people for the Lord,
by taking care that by means of your donation,
the cleartext information is found in the huge web through Google AdWords.


Please help actively to "fish" the people interested in God and Jesus from the internet,
before they get stuck in the clutches of false preachers and their half-truths.
Satan would be the victor.

Do you want that ?

 

Attention !

Most likely you will hear deeply in your innermost a voice that tells you quite softly:

"Do not give your money ! Do not help spreading God's word !"

Whether Jesus or the Holy Spirit will tell you this ?

No - Satan tries to stop you.

Do you want to obey him ?


If you want to help with a donation to spread the Word of God - here you will find information.

 

We Christians - also you - got the order from our Lord Jesus,
to make his words known to other people - and to explain them,
what God and Jesus expect of us, humans. This is even a commandment of Jesus -
The so-called great commission (read also the cleartext point 030).

Always remember the warning of Jesus Christ.
He said:

"He that is not with me is against me;
and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad."
(Matthew 12/30 and Luke 11/23)

Whoever does not "gather" for the eternal kingdom through the spreading of God's Word,
is against Jesus Christ - because of he (or she) "scattereth".

This is entirely in the spirit of Satan - you must be aware of this !

Do you want (through your passivity) to serve Satan (without actually wanting it) ?

In the Bible, we are very often exhorted and encouraged to become perpetrators of God's Word.
(Please read this in cleartext points 010, 012 and 016.)

Through our deeds and works, we can show the Lord (that is, prove him) that we love him and serve him.

In cleartext point 023, you learn that the Lord is watching and examining us during our earthly life.

Whoever does not serve God can not do much on the day of judgment -
Or rather, expect nothing from him.

This can be read in the following statement:

"Then shall ye return (Day of Judgement), and discern between the righteous and the wicked,
between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not."
(Malachi 3/18)


But remember:

On the last day, it is too late - you can not change anything or make up !
No one knows when and how suddenly his personal end comes.

Therefore my advice:

Do not put anything "on the long finger", but become a culprit of God's word -
Otherwise, you are deceiving yourself by thinking that you get into God's kingdom on the last day - but then must learn, that you are not welcomed there,
because you have served Satan with your passivity.

"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves."
(James 1/22)

Put all your efforts to prove the Lord that you have a true faith -
And not just have a dead faith.

"For as the body without the spirit is dead,
so faith without works is dead also."
(James 2/26)

"Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone."
(James 2/17)

But something dead is completely worthless !

 

Here, clear text is spoken (or written) - exactly,
as the name of the homepage already announces: "Jesus in cleartext".

Please do not consider these hard words as a threat -
This is the pure and blunt truth.

Only the full truth leads you into God's kingdom.

Jesus says:

"... and the truth shall make you free."
(John 8/32)

In the cleartext point 064 you can read how felt compulsion becomes voluntarism,
just by rethinking. The title of this cleartext point is:
How does a: "You must ...!" - become a voluntary: "I want ...!" - ?

(By clicking the middle link you can go there directly.)

 

In cleartext point 041, you will learn all that is considered "serving God".
You can get there immediately by clicking on the following link.
