A Rebuttal To Muslims False Claim That Matthew Cannot Be Trusted

There is a passage towards the end of Matthew in which he states that a number of saints rose from the grave after the resurrection of Jesus:

Matthew 27:51-54 says:
"And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent; And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many. Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God."

Muslims state that Matthew must have been lying because such a momentous event like this would have been reported far and wide and yet only Matthew reports it.

However, I would submit that the reason the writers of the other gospels did not mention the multi resurrections was because they were not direct eyewitnesses of it. Remember the 4 gospels were based on the actual events/speeches that were witnessed/heard by the eyewitnesses (except Luke who collated his findings/investigations together from the other eyewitnesses and is remarkably consistent with the other 3 gospels). It could be that only Matthew saw it happen. Maybe Mark and John didn’t see it happen and therefore (as faithful witnesses) did not write it down as they only wrote down what they themselves had seen and heard.

Matthew's gospel was specifically written in a

Will The End Of the World Take Place on 21st December 2012?

Is this The End?

This is a brief article.

I am not a prophet and am very careful not to make predictions. However, I can safely predict that there will be NO end on Friday 21st December 2012.

There are many people in the world who are ready to believe "prophets" (who obtain their information from "weird and wonderful" sources) regarding the end of the world yet they will NOT turn to the Bible for answers. The BIBLE is by far the best place and most reliable source for discovering how/when the world will end. To prove the Bible is reliable please click on this link: 
How The Bible Was Put Together and Proving Why It IS The Inspired Inerrant Word Of God

Jesus said "as to the day and hour NO-ONE knows except my Father ........".  He is saying that No-one can predict or "prophecy" when the end will happen. However, Jesus went on to say that there will be many signs pointing to a lead up to the end but no set day can be predicted, neither should it be predicted.

The end will not come until GOD says so.

For my readers (especially those who are casual seekers) please read this article:
Strong Evidence that Jesus Will Be Returning Soon

which shows what the signs will be as to the end of the World. We are CERTAINLY in the last of the last days because MANY of the signs are being fulfilled in OUR day, but we STILL cannot predict the exact day, month or year - nor should we, but we must declare that the "figurative" ark is being built and those who are outside faith in the ONLY Saviour from sin i.e JESUS, should put their faith/trust in Jesus BEFORE it is too late!!!

Jacob Prasch: A Vindictive Railer. Are These actions and Words Conducive Of A True Man Of God?

I had known of Jacob Prasch for many years and heard him preach many times. I had up until now excused his very brash style because I naively used to believe that he was a true man of God who preached truth and was used of God to expose false teachers and prophets.

However, in recent years it has come to my attention how Jacob is not just behaving like a bully but is also actually preaching elements of heresy  such as his "work based" salvation (Arminian) theology, his partial rapture for only "worthy" believers (again "work based") and his extra biblical (Enoch) teachings on the Nephilim. To see why the Arminian theology is heresy, please read that article by clicking here).

To read what Jacob says about the Nephilim please go to ( see also the bottom of this article for the screenshot image of that page especially read the part where Jacob ADDS to the Bible).


more specifically how his "behaviour is getting worse and worse".  IT IS TIME for true believers to stand up and say with a big collective voice "ENOUGH already!".

Jacob you are bringing the Christian message into disrepute by your disgraceful rants. Repent and humble yourself under the mighty hand of God.

The following things written by Jacob (below) are groundless accusations against Deborah. She hosts a blog which I used to contribute to    (see notes at the very bottom in blue).
She has presented accuracy with very clear documentary evidence of the things she writes.

Of course she may have (occasionally) used some of her own conclusions, but Jacob's attack is simply because he has been found out and is reacting (over reacting).  I have checked out (for myself) what Deborah has written. Much of what she says is definite evidence and been argued rationally, mostly fairly and scripturally. Certainly it is nonsense for Jacob to accuse her of those things below.

Below is what Jacob has written. Are these the words of a man of God? Especially notice what he said in red/bold writing.

"The invented out and out lie by “Deborah” that I call such brethren heretics in the book or elsewhere is a vicious and demonstrable lie obviolly embraced by her lunatic followers such as “Redeemed” etc. Sherry B. rather statss vicious things. One of these religious fruitcakes calls those not in agreeement with pre trib, “Ministers of Satan”. The point is that it is fully documented that Deborah is lied and spread slander. We are warned such people would come in the last days by Paul in 2 Tim. 3:3 where the term for such liars as Deborah is “diaboloi” or demonic people. Plainly, anyone who tells such obvious lies aimed to misrepresent the truth to others with an intent to defame is demonic. The Word of God, not Jacob Prasch , calls Deborah ‘demonic’

A Warning Against Some Dangerous Internet Prophetic Fellowships

This Article Has Been Temporarily (maybe Permanently) Put "on ice".

I have received a lot of advice. Some good/some bad. The result is that I have decided to remove all the previous contents and replace it with some general information, whilst  I spend a season in prayer seeking how the Lord wants me to proceed.

For now I will just give a general loving/compassionate warning.

For those of you who are seeking on line interactive fellowship you really do need to be careful because they are not all what they seem. Always bear in mind that whatever you write in comments will always be stored on search engines for the whole World to see, so do not divulge too much personal information or open your hearts too much because some will trample your pearls into the ground and even humiliate you in public, twisting everything you say, and even saying downright lies about you based upon their own opinions about you and not on what is actually true.

Also be careful when corresponding by email and do not open your heart to anybody until you absolutely know you can trust them because some are in the habit of  misreporting/exaggerating the contents of emails and some even  copy/paste the contents of the email on their blogs. Incidentally even copied emails can be doctored. 

This author will never divulge private email conversations or (email addresses) and certainly not publish their names, unless the other person has given me permission to publish any of these things. If someone makes a public comment and asks me to NOT publish it, then I always honour that request.

Anyway, this is particularly a warning for my co Christian blog writers. For those of you who choose to display their blog links on other sites. You need to be careful what you say on these sites because others could totally twist what you have said  (even through deleting some of your comments) and then they tell the whole world that you said something you didn't say or do. Their end purpose is to try and blacklist your blog and therefore render your blog ineffective.

Take care everyone

Calvinist Teachers/Followers (Reformed Theologians) Are They Unsaved?

The purpose of this article is to clarify my standpoint re my last article entitled: “New Calvinism. Explaining And Exposing This Latest Ecumenical and Apostate Movement Which Is Taking The Church By Storm”   Please Click Here  (to read that article).
Calvin: unsaved?
Whitfield: unsaved?
Spurgeon: unsaved?


Piper: unsaved?

It has come to my attention that readers may think I am suggesting that followers of Calvinism cannot be saved because of  Calvinists pagan Catholic/Augustinian influences and its superimposing gnostic teaching TO the Bible (i.e, twisting the scriptures, effectively adding to and taking away from what the Bible says and therefore removing the true and pure simplicity of the Word of God).

I AM  NOT suggesting that a Calvinist is not saved. I will now address the reasons why I believe that (possibly) MOST Calvinists ARE saved!

In dealing with this question, we need to be careful to always remember HOW one is saved.  I do not know of anyone who becomes a Calvinist, Arminian or of any other belief system BEFORE they receive Jesus as their Saviour.  Usually a believer becomes a Calvinist etc AFTER they come to faith (depending upon what Christian group influence them, at that time).

So……  Before we dare state that Calvinists etc are unsaved, we need to remind ourselves on

Riots In UK. Why?

Britain is becoming global major news headlines because of the mass countrywide riots. It is said that the cause of the riots is the killing of an innocent civilian by the Police. Is that really the reason?

The fact of the matter is that the riots are not spontaneous but clearly well organised and orchestrated, possibly long in advance. Some say that there has been much facebook or twitter activity.

It is not possible that something so organised could have happened on such a large scale just because of an isolated incident. What is also clear is that many are angry because of the global economic meltdown. Many in the UK have become redundant, lost their properties and become poor. The situation has been worsened because of Government policy to reduce benefits to the needy. Possibly this disproportionate reaction to the killing is because of widespread anger at circumstances.

For a long time, schools are teaching false evolution theories that have resulted in a new generation of people without hope. If they believe that there is no God and that they have descended from monkeys, it is no surprise if they behave as animals. Then there is the media that proclaim that sin is good and to be encouraged. The media glorify the occult, homosexuality, sex and violence. Our children have been influenced by a culture glorifying these things. It is no wonder that sinful practice seems right to individuals.

If those who were fairly well off have become poor because of Government policies, it may be that they believe it is their right to steal back what has been stolen from them. Besides, isn't that what television glorifies?

I DO NOT accept that they are within their rights, but it is understandable why they are angry. It is the powers that be that has produced such an environment. the public is simply (wrongly though it be) reacting against these things.

So what is happening is now opportunism. It is a snowball effect.  The public is taking opportunity from the riots to join in and loot stores. They have realised that there is safety in numbers. So the greater numbers who riot, the greater opportunity for others to join in, steal and get away with it. Many who (in the past) would never consider this criminality, participate because they can get away with it.  What this shows is that at the heart of every single human being is the tendency to sin and to succumb to temptation. "All have sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God". "The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life".

I believe these riots could snowball even further across the world unless serious measures are taken. Problem is that Britain (and the rest of the World) are not financially viable enough to tackle such anarchy successfully on a long term basis. The global economic crisis puts every country at risk.

This may not sound very encouraging, but there IS encouragement. God told us that TERRIBLE TIMES would hit us in the last days, which means that things are not outside His control because He told us it would happen.

2Timothy 3:1-4 says

"There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,  without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power"

The Bible goes on to say that these times will be like in the days of Noah. "everyone did what was right IN THEIR OWN EYES" ie anarchy! The Bible tells us that during these terrible days Jesus will return and set up His kingdom. God WILL step in, but for a time there will be terrible days ahead. Let us take comfort in knowing that God IS IN control and that He told us that these things would happen (in advance) so that when it happens we can look upwards

Christians Wake Up. A Rallying Cry

Edited 29 Oct 2011 (see edited section below in bold)

Before I get criticised for being judgemental. I will first say that I am being GENERAL and all inclusive (includes me) in what I am about to write.

As you know, this blog is concentrated on watchman issues and teachings. There are a growing number of believers who are realising the apostasy and deceptions that surround us and want to do something about it. However, although there are many who are being enlightened, WE are still very much indifferent to what is going on and still sleep soundly in our beds, just letting it happen, doing very little about it. In fact most believers are DOING NOTHING because their priority is not Jesus but is SELF. This is why the 21st Century church is attractive to many because it feeds the ego. Today, many churches no longer preach that Jesus is the ONLY way. Or at least they do not demonstrate it in action.

That may sound harsh. I address it to myself too!  I am loathe to be harsh but I sense a conviction within that I need to write these words in an attempt to wake us all up.

Let me ask some questions:
How much do you love Jesus?
Is He your reason for living?
Do you live 100% for Him?
Do you have your own private life agendas?
Where does your priority for living lie?
Do you go through the motions of Christian worship and meetings?
Is there a vibrancy and determination within your soul to know Him?
Do these words offend you, making you angry?

If the above questions offend you, it indicates you still have  pride. It indicates that you are full of self importance and need to be humbled before God.

Many of us have "lost our first love". The challenge cries out through the Centuries "RETURN TO YOUR FIRST LOVE".  Are you lukewarm in your faith? What did Jesus say "because you are neither hot nor cold, I will spew you out of my mouth".  God hates indifference. Jesus in many of His parables taught how serious it was to play luke warm with our faith. In fact the inference is that luke warm believers were NEVER born-again. When a person is baptised with the Holy Spirit, he/she is baptised with a fire that burns within. If you do not have a passion for Christ and His work on Earth, it indicates that you are not filled with the Holy Spirit.

Edited 29 Oct 2011
Obviously, there is a difference between being FILLED with the Holy Spirit compared to having a deposit of the Holy Spirit. Paul said that those who do not have a deposit of the Holy Spirit, within, do not belong to God.
However, it is imperative (if we are to serve God with passion) that we allow the Holy Spirit to have full sway in us.

Paul told the Ephesians that they needed to be FILLED with the Holy Spirit. The Greek carries a past, present and future tense. As I understand it, Paul was saying "be filled and continue to be filled" . In Acts 4:31 it says that the believers (who had already been baptized in the Holy Spirit in Acts 2) were "all filled with the Holy Spirit" Why?  We read of Peter "being full of the Holy Spirit". Throughout the NT we get the impression that we need to be continuously refilled with the Holy Spirit. Why? Well ..... we tend to sin from time to time and "walk in the flesh" therefore, we need to regularly be cleansed from sin and refreshed by the Holy Spirit.

An indication of having the Holy Spirit is having a compassion, love and resilience to care after those in need.   Too many churches leaders and believers say the right things, but the evidence backing it up (in action) is not forthcoming. They say "I love you brother" but do little to help them when they are in need.

Yes I know that there are many wonderful believers who do mighty

British Government Supports Homosexual Lifestyle ABOVE Christians

Please check out this shortcut link which is a news report from BBC internet news: This is the heading

Court backs decision to bar Christian foster couple

The story goes on to say that the judges considered that laws to protect homosexuals from discrimination should take precedent over Christians rights of the same protection. So in UK, Christians are being treated as inferior to homosexuals regarding their rights.

 I encourage us all to pray for God's intervention and protection of His children throughout the Earth. Christians are NOW being persecuted (in one way or another) throughout the whole Earth. All I can say is MARANATHA. Come Lord Jesus! Please intervene by your return and bring in your Lordship Millennial reign, as this world is falling apart into greater and greater sin.

Britain (like most Western Nations) is falling further and further into moral decay and thereby becoming ripe for God's judgement. Remember how God judged Sodom and Gomorrah and the wickedness at the time of Noah? 

God NEVER changes and His standards of holiness and righteousness NEVER change. Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever. However, we are living in days when man thinks he is God and can change laws to suit his corrupt views of life. He thinks he knows better than God and that his ways are better, so he changes laws to fit the opinions of man which are considered better than God. Actually, he is building up judgement against Himself every time he rejects any of God's laws and replaces it with humanistic laws. What arrogance for mankind to think it knows better than God!

We should always remember what the psalmist said

Fix Your Eyes Upon Jesus

I have been writing a series on the developing Apostasy within the Evangelical Church of our day and which groups and leaders are involved in this apostasy. I have already posted Part 3 and am still working on part 4. But, before I continue, I would like to step aside and remind ourselves something extremely important and critical.

As watchmen, it is so easy to get too focussed on issues of heresy, warnings, falsehood, etc. I do not believe a watchman can simply focus only on these things because one aspect of a watchman is to watch, pray, inform, warn, equip  but just as important (as part of equipping) is to encourage, motivate and point people to look to Jesus. Let's face it that without Jesus we are nothing and without Him we can achieve nothing.

So I want to step to one side, take "time-out" and remind us of how wonderful

Why Book Of Enoch Is A Fake, Alert

Did the enemy write this?

Edited 31 Jan 2011 (Have added another link as evidence). See the bottom of this article. Also edited 29 Oct 2014 (in brown).

I read through the Book of Enoch about 6 months ago, out of interest because it was mentioned in the book of Jude (in the Bible). I did this (out of curiosity) to see why it was not considered as inspired scripture and also so that I could answer those who had read it.

The first thing I noticed was how scrambled it was - all over the place, much like what you find in other religions or cults holy books. I tried to make sense of it but could not.

Certainly it contradicts canonical scripture, quotes heresy and is nonsense by the way it has been put together. It doesn't give you the sense of inspiration or truth that the 66 God breathed books give in the recognised Bible.

Apparently, the book of Enoch was discovered together with the dead sea scrolls. Some people assume that because it was found with the dead sea scrolls, that that (in itself) authenticates its reliability. Are they correct? It actually reminds me of an excerpt from Matthew 13:27-28 "Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares?’He said to them,An enemy has done this". Jesus stated that the good seed is the Word of God and therefore the bad seed is NOT the word of God but a false or counterfeit version. This principle of teaching could be applied to the book of Enoch (bad seed) amongst the good seed found in the same place.

Here is one site that exposes the falseness of that Enoch book:

This article on that site highlights many things which illustrate that the Book of  Enoch is a fake. This is an excerpt from that page, which I agree with:

"As you read the Book of Enoch, you will notice

Bible NIV 2011 Version ALERT

Edited 22 and 28 Jan 2011.  Please see addition at the bottom

Before reading this please familiarise yourselves with How The Bible Was Put Together and Proving Why It IS The Inspired Inerrant Word Of God  which shows that most of  the available Bible versions (up until 1984) were reliable and could be fully trusted.

NIV 2011 Version cannot be fully trusted
I often use as a valuable resource for searching specific scripture verses and copying/pasting the verses. I usually use NASB, KJV, NKJV and NIV in my research. Although NIV may not be the very best (although still a very good translation) I usually use it in my articles because it is easier to read or use.

What I didn't notice until now, is that the original NIV (1984 copyright) has been updated to 2011 copyright. Bible Gateway still list the version 1984 but it appears at the bottom of the list of versions, with 2011 version at the very top of the list. However, I will continue to use the 1984 version.

I checked out the 2011 version to see what the differences were because i could not understand why it needed to be updated as it was already easy enough to read and easily relevant in how we speak today. So why did they change it?

They changed it because they wanted the NIV to be more relevant to the 21st Century, ie they wanted it to be politically correct! WHAT?????

How dare they meddle with the Bible to make it more Politically correct, ie change it to conform to the way we think TODAY. The Bible says "do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of our minds. The Bible should change us FROM the world, not change the Bible! Jesus is the same yesterday today and forever. WE MUST NOT CHANGE ANYTHING. Jesus and other scriptures warned of what would happen if we tamper with the Word of God.

So what changes have taken place? Well I noticed something immediately in the Book of James. It had this as a footnote:

Blog Written From Heart Of Love and Compassion. Tough Love? A Response To Criticisms.

Edited 26 Jan 2011 (edited section in bold)

I write this article in response to a number of criticisms I have received saying that I do not show the love of Jesus in this blog and that my focus is on the smaller doctrines of the Bible and not the most important teachings. In response to these criticisms first read these following articles of mine:

Why Jesus Is The ONLY Way To Heaven and How To Be Saved

How To Be Truly Saved and Be Certain Of Going To Heaven

What Is Repentance?

Qualities Of True Biblical Leadership Compared To the False Teachers

We Are No Longer Under Law But Under Grace! What Does That Really Mean?

How To Handle False Teaching And Strange, Different Teachings

My Rapture and End Times Stance

(Read just the introduction to this article as it explains my stance that other teachings like loving one another are more important than our end times stance)

The Importance Of Combining Discernment With Love

Are Our Experiences More Important In Our Christian Faith Than knowing Him through His Word? 

My articles listed above should prove that I am very conscious NOT to miss the BIG stuff. From these articles you will see I try to keep a good balance and to NOT get sidetracked away from the Truth.  The main reason I have this blog and write the things I write, is because I have compassion for my brothers and sisters. I want us all
