"But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." Mat 23:13

"Jesus saith unto them, "Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you."" Mat 21:31

Some weeks ago I sat across a table from a woman I care much about. She is dear to my soul and I have prayed much for her over the years. I have prayed mostly that she would be awakened to the Love of God and dispel her brand of elitist payback religion built on dead works that only brings as it's reward, self righteousness. Over the years I have spent countless hours in prayer that this woman and her children would learn to love their neighbors instead of delegating 95% of them to a mythical Hell where they would be tormented forever and ever by a terroristic God .......... a God, who is more evil than any despot that ever lived. This woman has a few sons that minister the false gospel in the organized church and she also has one son that seems to have quit the church. She was sharing her hope that this son that is free from the church might get right with God.

I so wanted to tell my friend that this son that has fled the church is closer to the Kingdom of God than the son who proudly pastors a church. I'll tell you honestly, I can think of hardly a worse fate than to suffer a son, that every Sunday ministers a gospel of dead works with Hell as the stick and Heaven as the carrot. The shame of it, and should I have such a son I would be on my knees day and night for his soul and the souls of those he binds up in fear and dead works!

"But woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye shut up the kingdom of heaven against men: for ye neither go in yourselves, neither suffer ye them that are entering to go in." Mat 23:13

"Jesus saith unto them, "Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you."" Mat 21:31

It just wasn't the moment to share such with this woman that day and my prayer is that she might even read some of that which I write tonight on the blog. With that said, I will share a word by L. Ray Smith and Brad Edwards (below) for the ministers of Jackson Hole. And please preacher, don't be as, the many that say, "Oh we don't preach Hellfire from the pulpit."
Should that be the case Mr. Pastor, Mr. Teacher, that is to your greater shame because deep down in your heart, you know the absurdity and perversion wrought by the doctrine of Hell ....... a demonic teaching that blasphemes Our True God who is known as Love. Oh Mr Preacher man and any mother of a preacher man, please know our Lord and Saviour will not lose even one of His sheep and all the Father's children shall be rightly restored to His Kingdom, each in his own order and time. You or your sons may not preach a smokin Hellfire message this Sunday, but that "damnable Hellish doctrine" will be the eight hundred pound gorilla standing in the corner of the room and every one knows he's there.

I would seriously rather see a young man or woman in a bar drinking with their friends than to see them in a so called Christian church where a Pagan God, who has in his nature eternal terror and torment, is worshiped. I can only say, thank God, with the present world events, it looks like Jesus may be coming soon to take back His church. Even so come Lord Jesus! Come Dear Jesus especially for our children that there not be more captured and ruined by these false shepherds and wolves masquerading in sheep's clothing.
Lord help us to see Jesus, a shepherd that leaves the ninety nine to gather the last one back into His fold.

And a word for those that sit under the spell of these false shepherds, teachers and preachers that have turned the Truth of the Kingdom of God upside down and inside out with their traditions of men. The Harlot Church System illustrates how we have made idols out of the things we call church and how idolatry is demon-driven and spiritual harlotry. The false church is wed to the world and divorced of Christ. The modern church and the world are become one.

"Show the house to the house of Israel that they may be ashamed of their iniquities, and let them measure the pattern." Ezekiel 43:10

The trumpet of the Lord is sounding an alarm to God's holy remnant to "come out of her My people, that you be not partakers of her sins and that you receive not of her plagues." Revelation 18:4

Beloved I pray God open your ears to hear the trump. Jesus is coming for those that are His,


"You Fools! You Hypocrites! You Snakes!"
[Meet the Real Jesus Many Hate]

The title of this paper is taken from the very words of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, spoken to the Scribes and Pharisees in Jerusalem. Let’s take a Scriptural look at a side of Jesus that most Christians will not believe, even when they see Him in their own Bibles.

Who were the Scribes and Pharisees?

The Pharisees were not the priests, but rather people from all walks of life who were very pious and strict keepers of the Law of Moses. They constantly adjusted the Law to fit the changing world according to their traditions and own desires. Among the more educated of the Pharisees were the Scribes and the rulers of the Jews:

"In the modern sense they [the Scribes] were the religious scholars or theologians … sometimes called lawyers … or teachers of the law …could make judicial decisions based on Scriptural exegesis, occupied important positions in the Sanhedrin … played a major role in bringing on the crucifixion of Jesus" and they "mainly belonged to the party of the Pharisees" (WYCLIFFE Bible Dictionary, p. 1536).

Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees "fools, hypocrites, blind guides, whited sepulchers, murderers, a generation of snakes," and many such epithets. Jesus called them "hypocrites" seven times in one chapter. He spoke with scathing derision to the Scribes and Pharisees throughout His ministry; very few of them received a kind word from Him.

And yet countless Christians write and tell me that Jesus never spoke like this or ever said a cruel or angry word in His life. Therefore when I sometimes write with an edge on my voice I am accused of not following the example of Jesus. Oh but Jesus surely did speak harshly, demeaningly, and with great anger in His voice to the Scribes and Pharisees—the religious Leaders of God’s Church. Jesus was not mild and soft-spoken when it came to the sins and hypocrisy of these church leaders. Too many Christians have read the teachings of Jesus with rose-colored glasses covering both their eyes and their minds.

When the Pharisees asked Jesus, "Why do your disciples…?" Jesus didn’t softly answer their question, rather He retorted back with, "Why do YOU…?" Jesus was never on the defensive, but always on the offensive. Using the vernacular, He was "IN THEIR FACE!"

Do any believe Jesus was referencing farm animals when He said not to cast pearls or give what is holy to "the DOGS and PIGS?"

Jesus referred to the recalcitrant Jewish leaders as, "an EVIL and ADULTEROUS generation," "SERPENTS and SNAKES," and "children of the DEVIL." Why He even told the Scribes and Pharisees regarding the royal and mighty King Herod: "Go ye, and tell that FOX [that JACKAL]…"


There are many examples of Jesus upbraiding the Church leaders for their gross sins [selections from Matthew 23]:


…THEY BIND HEAVY BURDENS and GRIEVOUS to be borne, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but will not move them with ONE OF THEIR FINGERS

WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES… you DEVOUR WIDOW’S HOUSES… you shall receive the greater damnation.

WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES…

WOE unto you, ye BLIND GUIDES…


WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! You… have omitted… JUDGMENT, MERCY, and FAITH…

You BLIND GUIDES, which strain out a gnat, and SWALLOW A CAMEL.

WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES… within they are full of EXTORTION AND EXCESS.


WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES! You are FULL OF DEAD MEN’S BONES, and ALL UNCLEANESS… and HYPOCRISY and INIQUITY…

WOE unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, HYPOCRITES!… you are the children of them which KILLED the prophets. FILL YOU UP then the measure of your fathers.

You SERPENTS, you GENERATION OF SNAKES… you KILL AND CRUCIFY… you SCOURGE in your synagogues… Behold your house is left unto you DESOLATE"!!

WOW! Every one of these comments from Matt. 23 were spoken directly to the "Religious Scholars and Theologians" in the Church of God centered at the Temple in Jerusalem. Would Jesus speak in the same manner to the Religious Scholars and Theologians in God’s Church today? Does Jesus "change"? NO. Has the Church changed in the past 2000 years? YES. It has gotten WORSE.

Now I assure you that I have never personally referred to the religious hypocrites of our day with all the descriptive words that Jesus used. Yet I am "cursed" and "condemned to hell" for merely exposing the heresy of religious leaders and teachers. Positively no one in Christendom would ever sanction such a manner of speech from a minister in their denomination. There isn’t a denomination in all Christendom that would hire Jesus as their pastor if He were to return today. Why they would throw him out the door on His ear before He got ten minutes into His first sermon .............

The rest of L Ray Smith's article can be found at this link:

"Brood of Vipers!"

MT 12:33 "Make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit. 34 You brood of vipers, how can you who are evil say anything good? For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.

MT 23:33 "You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell?

Is there any misunderstanding about how Jesus (God) feels about many of the Scribes and Pharisees? John the Baptist was the first to label them snakes because they killed others with their venom of hypocrisy and false teachings. He surely recognized that these religious men took after their father- the serpent of old. In fact, "brood" means OFFSPRING or nest of offspring. You might say that John paved the way for THE WAY! As our Bibles will show, when Jesus spoke to these men he had nothing but rebuking words for them. So while reading the Gospels it should be perfectly clear that these thought by the public to be the "men of God", the Scribes and Pharisees, "missed the mark" big time! In fact, Jesus' (God's) harshest words were ALWAYS to these very religious men. Jesus (God) LOVED the rich man; He FORGAVE the prostitute; He SUPPED with tax collectors; and He came to SAVE sinners- not those who thought they were righteous and felt no need of a Physician.

I suppose that most Christians can understand why Jesus (God) was angry with these men, but can Christians see that this dark nature of the Scribes and Pharisees NEVER left us? The same "nature" that deceived these "men of God" has been working within the Christian religion from day one. Some of the RELIGIOUS of today are no different than those pious men of Jesus' day. We were told that wolves would enter into the fold (Acts 20:29, 2 Tim 3:5). Well my friends, the MODERN DAY SCRIBES AND PHARISEES are alive and well today within Christianity. They are just more subtle in their destructive ways, but the fruit is the same- bad. The modern day VIPERS are still injecting others with venom in the form of pride, hypocrisy, ignorance and condemnation. Not only do these vipers condemn non-Christians to an eternal hell, they may even condemn fellow Believers if they do not believe what they do. What they don't realize is that they are the vipers in hell and sons of it!

It would be hard to refute the MANY atrocities that have been committed in Christendom's history by self-proclaimed Christians with good intentions. History books are full of the "fruit"- the horrors and cruelty done in the name of Christ. One only has to look at our "Christian county" to see the hypocrisy and violence from within the false Christian system and culture. We read that times were "violent" before the Great Flood, yet in this century, one "Christian country" has killed millions of men, women and children. Of course, more deaths came before the 20th century in our "Civil?" War. It has been said that more Americans died in this war than in ALL other wars since combined. I don't have the number, but does it matter? This "Christian country" that God has blessed is still full of violence in our streets, in our homes and in our hearts. But why? This "Christian county" is the ONLY country to ever kill innocent civilians using nuclear weapons! Why? This "Christian county" has the highest murder rate in the "civilized" world! Is this CIVILIZED? Is this the transforming life of Christ working in us? Did Jesus or the early Believers EVER use violence to promote, defend or sustain their faith? No, they had all they needed in Christ. Real Christians were united in God's love for each other and for humanity.

COL 3:12 Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. 13 Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14

And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.
This is NOT the behavior of many "Christians" in the Dark Ages or even today. But why are so many in the dark? Is it because they never had the Light in them? Jesus Christ did not come to start a new religion, but to transform the human race. A few centuries after Jesus was resurrected, NEW Scribes and Pharisees of the Christian persuasion were well on their way to positions of power within the religious system of Christianity. These now "Christian" Vipers were coming back with an evil vengeance against the Truth.

Talk about IN YOUR FACE...!

I love His righteous anger that I hear in this is so needed b/c IT IS TIME for the sheep to be set free.

Thank you Lord for speaking so BOLDLY and CLEARLY through my brother Jack. May all that read this in Jackson Hole finally 'come out of her...the organized church".


Jack Hennessey said...

Eliyah, most pastors in the valley here are more of the "keep 'em comfortable in religion" type with the Hellfire doctrine unspoken and rarely acknowledge. But all know it is there like the elephant in the room no one wants to acknowledge. As long as you can keep the peeps coming every Sunday, feelin like their religious duty is fulfilled along with making sure the money fills the coffers the Harlot who counterfeits the true church remains strong. God promises in the Word that it will fall and I can see this happening soon.

This by message Chip Brogden below describes most of the churches here. And you wonder why the New Age movement is growing by leaps and bounds in the Hole. There is no life in the Churches!

"And the king of Israel said unto Jehoshaphat, 'There is yet one man, Micaiah the son of Imlah, by whom we may enquire of the LORD: but I hate him; for he does not prophesy good concerning me, but evil" (I Kings 22:8).

At first blush there would appear to be nothing wrong with something labeled "positive and encouraging." Three Christian radio stations service my area, and all three of them make the same claim: that they offer positive and encouraging programming for the whole family. The appeal is obvious: no one wants to spend a lot of time dwelling on things that are negative and discouraging.

But I have discovered a flaw in this positive and encouraging, family-friendly environment that should be addressed. This desire to provide people with a positive and encouraging experience (whether it is by radio or by television or by church service or by website) creates an unrealistic expectation in the hearts and minds of the audience and congregation who have come to rely on "the ministry" to keep them properly fed. Content is judged not according to Truth, but according to how I feel about it. Do I feel good, positive, encouraged, uplifted, and happy afterwards? If so then all is well. Or is it?

We must seriously question things that pass themselves off as "ministry". It is clear that the practice of "ministry" - whether it comes in the form of a sermon or a song - is becoming synonymous with "Christian Entertainment." It is not so much what they say as what they fail to say. The most glaring omission in this positive and encouraging Christian sub-culture is meaningful reference and teaching along the lines of taking up the cross and denying self, and I would suggest this one thing sums up most of what is lacking in Churchianity today...

Thanks for the comment sis,

Just wanted to tell you that Kai loved the picture of the WOLF in sheeps clothing...he was the one who noticed it....and pointed it out to is a really cool picture!

"Just wanted to tell you that Kai loved the picture of the WOLF in sheep's clothing...he was the one who noticed it....and pointed it out to

Isn't that a great illustration on how the wolves can blend in and it takes a discerning spirit to know "whose are His" vs. "those who have come to devour and destroy."

God grant us discernment in all that is brought before us in this, the end of the age.

And may we ever instruct the young amongst us to call upon the Holy Spirit to know the difference between Truth and falsity!

Bless you sister and give my love to Kai,
