THE ROMAN CATHOLIC EUCHARIST: THE DECEPTION OF WORSHIPING A PIECE OF BREAD

John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

I am posting this video… THE ROMAN CATHOLIC EUCHARIST: THE DECEPTION OF WORSHIPING A PIECE OF BREAD …to refute a false teaching that I recently became aware of by Pentecostal preacher Benny Hinn. (I know the Benny Hinn Rome connection is nothing new, but it still shocked/disturbed me to hear what he said.) I heard him highly exalt the Roman Catholic eucharist. I do believe that there are many Christians who listen to his false teachings and are influenced by what he says.

Is Benny Hinn a Roman Catholic?

Is he a Jesuit … a “pied piper” … leading many of his hearers to Rome?

The institutional organized church has been infiltrated!  

Please take a moment to watch this solid biblically based video refuting the teaching of Rome’s eucharist.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC EUCHARIST: THE DECEPTION OF WORSHIPING A PIECE OF BREAD

Love a Roman Catholic today. Be a witness for Jesus and preach the Gospel to them. That Roman Catholic that you love so much is in a very dangerous place. Sometimes, even as believers, we fail to grasp the true horror of someone believing the false gospel of Rome. My mom was genuinely saved (and witnessed to my father) after many many years of our witnessing to her and praying for her. I thank  the Lord he set her free. I thank the Lord he set me free. Let’s not forget those who are still in Satan’s grasp.

A CUP OF COLD WATER

Jesus promises a reward for showing the smallest kindness, even just giving a cup of cold water, to one of his followers. These words are rarely heard in today’s church.

Matthew 10:42 And whosoever shall give to drink unto one of these little ones a cup of cold water only in the name of a disciple, verily I say unto you, he shall in no wise lose his reward.

Instead, the False Dispensational teachers of our day tell us we will be blessed if we bless unbelieving Israel, quoting the following Scripture.

Genesis 12:3 And  I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.

Genesis 12:3 has become the “mantra” of false Dispensational theology.  We hear this verse repeatedly taken out of context, to the point where it has brainwashed many within the church to embrace a twisted meaning of this beautiful Scripture.

Jesus never honored unbelieving Israel.

Jesus wept over unbelieving Israel.

Matthew 23:37-38 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.

Paul never honored unbelieving Israel.

Paul had great sorrow of heart for his lost Jewish brethren.

Romans 9:2-3 That I have great heaviness and continual sorrow in my heart. For I could wish that myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my kinsmen according to the flesh.

It is dangerously misleading to teach that the Jewish people are blessed in their unbelief, because the truth is that the wrath of God is upon them.

John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.

Scripture is very clear in telling us that a person cannot have God as their father if they deny Jesus Christ, the Son.

1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

1 John 2:23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

Scripture clearly identifies Abraham’s true seed.

Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Romans 2:28-29 For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.

The blessing of Abraham.

The promise of the Spirit.

Galatians 3:14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Abraham’s true seed, according to the promise.

Galatians 3:
26 For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Romans 9:
6 Not as though the word of God hath taken none effect. For they are not all Israel, which are of Israel:
7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, are they all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called.
8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.

If we truly want to bless the Jewish people we will preach the Gospel to them, and pray for their salvation.  

*And remember the true promised reward, not for blessing unbelieving Israel, but for showing the smallest kindness, even just giving a cup of cold water, to anyone who is a disciple of Jesus Christ.

PROCLAIM THE LORD’S DEATH TILL HE COME

O HOW I LOVE JESUS

I remember someone witnessing to me many years ago when I was a Roman Catholic.  They gave me some biblically based literature which included revealing the anti-biblical person/position of the Roman Catholic Pope of Rome.  Way back then, after reading the material I was given, I had two reactions that I clearly remember.  One was interest (I read it all)  and the other was a type of fear.  I hid the literature.  It’s truthful contents sounded very strange to me.  I didn’t want anyone to see it, so I hid it, … BUT … I didn’t throw it out.  

The truths that were presented  to me went against the grain of the beliefs that I had held dear for almost 40 years of my life.  They were beliefs held by the multitudes.  These truths that I read were so strange, different, and scary to me at that time.  They couldn’t be true, … or could they.

In time the Lord sent someone else to gently but boldly witness to me, and I was lead to the path of searching for the truth.  I found that truth in God’s Word, the Bible, and I was born again.

We do not gauge truth by popular opinion.  Just because “everybody” does it or believes it doesn’t make it true or right. We as born again Christians know that oh so well.

Some food for thought…

In our day there is a widespread embrace of remembering the birth of Jesus Christ.   It’s called Christmas.  This Roman Catholic Christmas is accepted as a legitimate Christian observance even by born again Christians.  I would say again … just because “everybody” does it or believes it, doesn’t make it true or right. 

Jesus did say to remember … remember His atoning death… for sinners like me and you…

“For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew [proclaim, promulgate:–declare, preach, shew, speak of, teach] the Lord’s death till he come.” 

Proclaim the  Lord’s atoning death for lost sinners…

Do it in remembrance of Jesus…

1 Corinthians 11:23-26 For I have received of the Lord that which also I delivered unto you, That the Lord Jesus the same night in which he was betrayed took bread: And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew [proclaim, promulgate:–declare, preach, shew, speak of, teachthe Lord’s death till he come.

From the housetops…

Matthew 10:27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.

For the love of Jesus…

Romans 5:8-11 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

O HOW I LOVE JESUS

AN ENEMY HATH DONE THIS…

I took this Christmas display photo (see photo below) a few years ago at a store in my area.  This year as I walked through the same store and I again looked at their yearly Christmas display I thought … “an enemy hath done this”.  Then I thought … to associate the “Christmas holiday” and this display with Jesus, Almighty God, the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords is surely blasphemous.

(See also … Christmas, Perpetuating A Lie)

Revelation 19:12-16 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

LOVE NOT THE WORLD

1 John 2:15 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 

John Henry Jowett:

“No man can love two opposites any more than he can walk in contrary directions at the same time. 

No man can at once be mean and magnanimous, chivalrous and selfish. 

We cannot at the same moment dress appropriately for the arctic regions and the tropics. 

And we cannot wear the habits of the world and the garments of salvation

When we try to do it the result is a wretched and miserable compromise. …

 So I must make my choice. 

Shall I travel north or south? 

Which of the two opposites shall I love — God or the world? 

Whichever love I choose will drive out and quench the other. 

And thus if I choose the love of God it will destroy every worldly passion, and the river of my affections and desires will be like ‘the river of water of life, clear as crystal.'”

John 7:37-39 In the last day, that great day of the feast, Jesus stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: …
