NO ONE REALLY LIVES UNTIL CHRIST IS FORMED WITHIN

Have any of you who claim to be Christ’s followers ever stopped from all the business of “YOUR” life to seriously consider what is the true meaning of the Gospel? According to the majority of those who are pastors of all the different denominational and independent churches in America and many others around the world, GOD wants everyone to be loving towards and inclusive of all faiths and lifestyles, healthy in body and mind, are financially sovereign, and are the envy of the communities in which they live, believing that this is evidence of true Christian expression. A gospel which is built upon the needs, the wants, and the hopes of people.

Contrary to this belief, the Bible is a testament of GOD from GOD, and is given to us for the purpose of revealing the deity of Christ in creation and through the salvation of those who believe. When studied carefully, the Bible tells a very different story than that which is believed by most people who profess to be either Christian or Catholic, or of the many religious beliefs which are similar too and are wrongly thought to be Christian. True Christians the world over suffer incredible hardships and persecution, imprisonment and are often murdered for their public proclamation of faith in Christ by Islamists, Hindus and the observers of many different world religions, while especially in America today we arrogantly live far above our needs and are adamantly opposed to submitting to that which is taught in Scripture as the biblical expression of Christian faith.
Our life is not our own! We who have come to realize the vile sins we have committed against the Holy GOD, and that we desperately need salvation and have believed and accepted Christ’s atonement for our sins are now obligated to be a witness to those who have yet to learn this truth. This calling is not meant to be contained within the safe-zone of the buildings where we gather as is purported by those opposed to the proclamation of the biblical Gospel. Yes, here is where Christian disciples are to be taught by those whom GOD has ordained to give instruction to how we are to rightly understand what the Scriptures teach about GOD, and of how this knowledge then forms our world-view and thus defines the Christian life that we live among world-societies. If not us, then who? This is the evidence of the Gospel’s message which people first see in our character and is evident by the conduct of our lives.

In the time in which we now live people do not want to be told that they sin against GOD and that they must repent and turn away from the sinful life that they love, and trust Christ for their salvation. People are either adamantly hostile towards those who would even dare to offend their emotions, or they want only to be told that GOD is love, and that they are free to live any lifestyle they choose as long as they love GOD and are kind and accepting of everyone they know.
I believe that this is the greatest injustice a Christian can commit against another person. Unless we are willing to confront the societies in which we find ourselves we are not a living testament to the transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and therefore we have sinned against GOD. As Christian disciples, we must boldly confront people with the truths of the Gospel and then pray that GOD will bring to life in these people the seed of regeneration that has within itself the power to transform the life of those who will believe. This is uncomfortable and it can be intimidating especially considering the hostility which many people express towards the true Bible believing Christians of today. They hated Christ. Do not think it strange that they will hate us also.

Ours is an impossible life apart from the undeserved favor of GOD whose Spirit indwells the recreated spirit and the renewed mind of the person who dares to believe. We are commanded by GOD to repent and to believe Christ, and to tell others that they must do the same. Only then does GOD willingly give to us the hope of assurance in knowing that in Christ we are declared righteous and that we are saved from the wrath of GOD which will one day come upon all who did not believe. Theirs is a lifetime of hopeless questions of which only the Christian disciple has the answers for. We are the salt of the earth. Let us act like it!

I HEARD THE SPIRIT OF GOD SAY

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 1:58 PM
Tags: , , , , , ,

It was during one of the darkest times in my life when I had become so disgusted with the life I was living, that I separated myself from everything I was familiar with. For a year and a half, all I did was study the Bible to try to find meaning in all the bad I had experienced. At times I would weep when reading about what Christ had done for me, and my meditation was would GOD somehow make this unbelievable hope to become reality to someone as undeserving as me. Then one night early in the morning, as I wept while worshiping GOD in prayer and in the study of GOD’s Word, I heard the Spirit of GOD say:

“I Am the LORD your GOD. I have brought you out of bondage. You will have no other god before Me. You will put nothing before your worship of Me. I Am the LORD your GOD, and I Am a jealous GOD over you. I will love you all of your life. Love Me and live for Me.”

GOD’s presence was so tangible that I fell to my knees in awe and in fear that GOD would consider me. The presence of GOD is something to behold, but, the presence of GOD is not something with which we can be so crass about.
I do not think myself privileged for the encounters I have had with GOD in my lifetime, but I do believe that GOD revealed Himself to me in this way to solidify my confidence in the hope which I now proclaim. I cannot be silent nor will I be concerned with the complaints of those who are offended when I preach Christ crucified, and that salvation is through Christ alone.

GOD reached down into utter darkness to reveal truth to me. I therefore can do nothing other than give my life to the study of GOD’s truth, and to trust that GOD will graciously allow the unsaved to see Christ through me. This is the out-working of the impossible attainment of the regeneration of a dead spirit and, of a mind being renewed to the hope of GOD accepting Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross of Calvary as my atonement.

Simply defined: When GOD looks at the cross He sees me, and when GOD looks at me, He sees Christ. How can a lost humanity not give their life to GOD? This is the indictment I will continue to confront society with. Who do you think you are, fool! To reject Christ is to spit in GOD’s face. This is not something I recommend you do…

OURS IS THE HOPE WHICH IS GRANTED

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 10:36 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

The hope we have is the knowledge of what God did through the atoning sacrifice of the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus, God in human form. Whose life, death and resurrection, was witnessed by those who were privileged to have been granted the understanding to know that He was the Christ. Who also recorded the historical writings we know as the Gospels in the New Testament Bible, which detail the public ministry and the acts of a man who did things that only God could do. God came to dwell among His creation, and the majority of those people did not recognize Him. Then in fulfillment of the promise which the ancient Scriptures foretold, the only person to have ever lived a perfect sinless life paid the ultimate price so that you and I would not have to.
Beaten and stripped naked, bleeding and humiliated, Jesus was crucified on Calvary’s cross to suffer the punishment of separation from the presence of God. There God’s wrath was poured out upon Jesus. He became sin, sickness and dis-ease and all of the depravity within each of us. By taking in His body the penalty we are deserving of, Jesus became the atonement for your and my sin. Jesus willingly sacrificed His deity to redeem a lost humanity, to once again enjoy unbroken fellowship with those whom He calls to give their lives for Him. And when the purpose of His death was fulfilled, Jesus raised Himself from the dead to be a living witness to the testament of His deity.

By this, Jesus proved to be the only true and living God! There is no other name or false religion known to mankind that can save, transform and make us righteous before God other than Jesus Christ.
There are grave consequences if you do not take the time to understand what it really means to be Christian. For if you live your life in a way that you enjoy the temporary pleasures of this world then one day as your body lays down in death with no atonement for your sins, there will be a reality you do not want to face!

Seek Christ now to be found by Him, and this priveledged hope will also be granted to you…

And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I command you; and lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the age. Matthew 28:18-20

THE WORLD IS BETTER BECAUSE OF CHRIST

I’m amused with the arrogance of educated people who think that they are wise, but are actually imbecile. Those who exercise all of their cognitive reasoning in the attempt to rationalize away the undeniable truth of creations God and with it, the thought of having to give an answer to the moral law-giver for the life one has lived. The recent debate between David Wolpe and Dinesh D’Souza, and A.C. Grayling and Matthew Chapman “The World Would Be Better Off Without Religion” was the epitome of intelligent ignorance.

http://fora.tv/2011/11/15/Debate_The_World_Would_Be_Better_Off_Without_Religion

In his book, the recently deceased author Christopher Hitches wrote about “God Is Not Great, How Religion Poisons Everything.” His world-view, much like the world-view of both Grayling and Chapman and most every person alive today both religious and non, focuses on the wrongs that imperfect people do, as was addressed by David Wolpe in his opening statement. What they intentionally avoid bringing attention too is the person whose life has been fundamentally transformed by the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Who is then used by GOD to bring about radical change in the lives of other people and, has led the way to many of the greatest humanitarian advancements in world history. I would like to suggest that God is good, and that good apart from God is in reality the arrogant expression of irrational justification of a person’s perceived self-worth. Pride is the sin which God hates most!

Read a book the will challenge the self-proclaimed atheist and the adherent of every world-religion that has ever been observed, in their attempt to explain away the evidence of the Christian religion being the only true expression of worshipping creations God. Their religion is in the rejection of, or is centered upon mans attempt to dethrone God by bringing God down to man’s attainment. Whereas Christianity is God’s own handiwork in the salvation of the person who in humility accepts the scandalous representation of the Gospel as God’s only will and testament of His separateness to humanity. No one apart from Jesus Christ has, nor ever will, be accepted by the Holy, Holy, Holy God.

So in summary, the real lesson to be learned here is to never give to a fool the microphone. The blind person cannot lead other blind people out of spiritual darkness. But in this age of tolerance where we now find ourselves, Christian apologists such as Mr. D’Souza are required to give equal time to the fool who has nothing to say worth hearing. I long for the day when the Christian man who is confident in the knowledge of the doctrine of Christ’s substitution, stands face to face with the educated imbecile as Elijah did to the prophets of Baal on Mount Carmel, to make a mockery of them. Elijah had no respect for their unbelief, neither do I. The world longs for the sons of God to be revealed, whose lives and preaching and ministry of caring for the people in the communities where they live, proves to that society that “The World Is Better Because Of Christ.”

OUR WORLD DESPERATELY NEEDS THE TOUCH OF ITS CREATOR

TRUTH IS WINSOME

Author William D. Simpson’s Personal Testimony To The Life Transforming Power Of The Gospel Of Jesus Christ.

There are no words to adequately express the appreciation I owe to GOD but in the way that I know best, I will attempt to describe the awe-inspiring depth of GOD’s love which captured me.

This is why I am a Christian, and is the reason I could never be silent…

I was a child of rape,
Fatherless,
Unloved by a mother, not wanted, neglected, beaten, burned and abandoned,
Fostered and then adopted by those who did not cherish nor protect,
Molested, raped, shamed,
Innocence lost,
Told was a mistake, no good, would never amount to anything,
Cursed, kicked, slapped, whipped, beaten,
Learned by example that alcohol and drugs would numb the pain,
Runaway,
Bullied, beat up, drug overdose and left for dead,
Hospitalized, juvenile incarceration, and told again that I would never amount to anything,
Hopeless, angry, alone,
Sentenced to juvenile life in prison,
Attempted rapes, countless fights, stabbed repeatedly, and in isolation hatred consumed,
Released from prison, unwelcome, homeless, hungry,
Never begged but ate out of dumpsters and occasionally worked for food or cash,
My youth and seemingly helpless condition was the lust of another’s deviant sexual behavior, who were played, beaten and robbed,
Alcohol warmed on cold nights,
Lonely women in bars were nothing more than a bed to sleep in,
Uncaring, indifferent, selfish, self-loathsome,
Attempted suicide, and angry that even death evaded me,
Married and was soon divorced,
Immersed in the bartend culture,
Became a stripper, an escort, drug dealer, a player,
For the twenty years following my release from prison I woke up in the morning to get high and laid down drunk every night,
Never saw in any other what I had always hoped could be real,
Dead is spirit, mean, calloused, vile and vulgar defines the man I had become. Then the unexpected happened…

GOD graciously and undeservedly reached down into utter blackness to reveal the truth of Christ’s redeeming work on the cross of Calvary to save as vile a man as me. So real was GOD’s presence as tears of joy washed away a lifetime of anger and pain. Gone was the guilt of my sin against GOD when reading that by accepting Jesus as my Savior and my LORD, GOD had declared me righteous. Nothing in my past had power to enslave me anymore. It was then that I realized why GOD chose me. I know hurt. I know pain. I know intimately the hopelessness felt by all people today. But most importantly, I know that GOD can save.
What I did, I no longer do. I’m not without fault, but the sins I used to love I now hate. When I am wrong I am easily hurt in knowing that GOD’s Spirit within me is grieved, and I’m quick to ask for forgiveness. And true to the written Word, GOD has taken from me the heart hardened by sin, and has birthed in me a sincere concern for the needs people have and, of the urgency for their eternal salvation. In Christ, GOD gave to humanity His all in that GOD died in our behalf that we would be given the privilege to truly live. Salvation is a free gift, but the soul’s transformation will cost the Christian disciple everything. As I am becoming a very different person, this is a testimony to the life-transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Now three years drug free,
In love with and happily married to the woman GOD chose to love me,
A helper to those who cannot help themselves,
Joined a truly Christian church,
Grew to believe that I can,
And of all things, I wrote a book about it all…

Once in awhile, someone comes along with a bold message, completely transforming the way that we view the world around us. Celebrity authors, academians and media personalities have long dominated the attention of the masses. But in this particular instance that someone is not famous, but is a person who has seen the world through a different set of eyes than most people.

GOD is real, and the book which I have written is a testament to the authenticity of the GOD of the Bible. The sole intent throughout the message of my book is to provoke deep thought by challenging the defense of one’s reason. “Why do I think like and continually do the things that I do?” For far too long we have been deceived by those who have manipulated the truths about GOD, and of how this vital world-view has influenced the societies in which we now live. Hurt people,hurt other people.
In an age given over wholly to relativism, it is my challenge for anyone to read the book which I have written and then attempt to rationally debate their disbelief of GOD, or, the belief that GOD is anything other than what has been revealed through the pages of Holy Scripture.

Of all the world religions and religious ideals, is it too difficult to believe that GOD is capable of revealing the truth of who GOD really is, and, what humanity must do to be accepted by GOD. I think not! No one can rationally defend their disbelief of GOD. For reason and conscience affirms the reality of GOD, and is why humanity hates this truth. They would rather love darkness…

Throughout history people have always insisted that the Christian give proof of GOD. I will say that Christ’s disciples have done just this by the evidence of a life forever changed. Will you give GOD the opportunity to prove to you the reality of His seperateness. GOD is so good. Our world desperately needs the touch of its CREATOR…

It is my prayer that your saving-faith will come to life while reading the personal testimony of a man who was broken by GOD to learn what it really means to love.

After nearly two years in print and very little media coverage as the result of a publisher being either prejudice of or intimidated by its message, I am offering my book for free to download in digital format. It’s never been about the money I could have made, but the possibility of my life’s testimony helping someone else to acknowledge the truth about salvation through Jesus Christ and Christ alone. I sincerely hope that you will read this book and recommend it to the people you know.

CHRISTOPHER HITCHENS NOW BELIEVES IN GOD

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 1:19 PM
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

GOD IS…

God is separate. God is holy. God is right. God is love. God is forgiving. God is just.

God is everything we are not for we are evil, wicked, vile creatures who hate the idea that God has given the law that we are to abide by. The love of God that all people refer to, and is grossly misunderstood, is displayed in the atonement that God made for humanity by killing Himself in the person of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary who willingly took upon Himself the furry of God’s holy anger against the fallen creation God loves. Only Christ could be this substitute!
The anger at those who tell people that they will be judged by God for rejecting Christ’s offer of salvation is too rejecting God. No one can know God apart from Christ. No one can come to believe in Christ apart from God drawing this person and revealing this precious gift. And the only possible way that a person can know about God is by the preaching of God’s Gospel.

We are GOD’s creation and we will all stand before God one day to answer for the life we have lived. Noted author and debater Christopher Hitchens died yesterday. He lived apart from God and only God knows his end. But Scripture is clear that if a person dies without having accepted Jesus Christ as Savior and as LORD, they are then of themselves subject to the wrath of God’s holy anger in the depths of an eternal HELL. Don’t be the fool who lives as if there is no God. Your world-view is grossly wrong.

GOD IS. EVIDENCE GIVEN!

Amidst the many differing ideals regarding the existence of God and the influence this has had upon world societies, there is great need for dialogue to confront and to challenge world-views with evidence that cannot be denied.

A witness is someone who can give testimony to an event/s that occurred with conviction to persuade. William Simpson has written a thought-provoking commentary that proves the reality of creations God, and, what one must act upon to be known by and to be accepted by God.
Of all the writings throughout world history, there is only one book which presents God as only God could truly be. LIVING IN THE HOPE OF MY IMAGINATION is the written testimony of a man who unapologetically challenges anyone to read and still deny the reality of the GOD of the Bible. The evidence has been given.

Book is available in stores and Amazon.

SHAME CAST AWAY IN A RIVER OF GRACE

“Jesus, lover of my soul; you give me strength to overcome where
you lead for the experience of knowing it’s in you I depend. The
foundation upon which I have established my faith is in the acceptance
of your sacrifice; I am a man now redeemed. You became salvation and
took upon you my sin to suffer and die that I might live again. In you
do I trust; your Words have I hid in my heart. Oh, the joy of knowing I
am your friend. Washed and made clean by the blood of the Lamb, you
are my hope everlasting in this peace I have found. Shame cast away in
a river of grace; confident, I stand upright in your presence, my King.
Free from the bondage and slavery to sin, being healed in my body,
mind renewed and made whole. Innocence once lost has now been
restored; you are my God, my Savior, my Lord.”

JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY EVIDENCE OF GOD

If God is not real, we have nothing to be concerned about. But, if what the Bible reveals about God is in fact true, then the message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the single most greatest thing in all the world to consider.

It is a fact that in every era as long as there has been a written record, people have worshipped or have observed some form of a higher deity. There are roughly 9000 known religious ideals, and tens of millions of inanimate objects and living creatures, which are idolized by those who want to believe in something greater than themselves. Many believe that religion is good and beneficial for a society, while others give religion no thought at all because of the injustices which have been committed against humanity throughout world history in the name of religion. Studies have shown that poor and underdeveloped nations have a higher percentage of people who devoutly observe religious beliefs, while much of Europe and North America have now embraced humanism as the only practical truth. There has always been, is, and always will be a never-ending debate over whose god is real, is there a God, why this god is superior to others, and will attempt to proselytize new converts. This is a brief history lesson of the story of religion…

There is though a fundamental flaw in the observance of all these differing world religions. Ideological adherents have both passionately and successfully confused everyone else as to the truth about who and or what God really is. Humanist philosophers have always and will continue to insistently argue the impractical evidence of any God at all. Why do so many highly educated people give all of their attention to something of which they believe does not exist? Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens and Stephen Hawking to name just a few. This should lead us to believe that there is an even greater fundamental flaw in the minds of those whom the world recognizes as the leaders of modern societies. It is, quite laughable, that they attempt to suppress within themselves and us, the innate conscience of reason that reveals to us the existence of creations God.

“For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For His invisible attributes, namely, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So that they are without excuse”. Romans 1:19-20

The questions which we have all asked have already been answered in our own minds. The moral conscience of knowing the difference between right and wrong, is the evidence of a lawgiver. What people are looking for to confirm what the mind already knows is real, is the natural evidence of God at work in the lives of those around us. This is the reason for me writing this blog…

Think objectively for just a moment. God is not confused. God is a spiritual being who is separate from humanity. God created all things and commands that all things operate within the bounds which God has set. Even science suggests that there is an order to everything. Nature proves that both plant and animal life can only reproduce after its own kind. And procreation affirms that sexual union between a man and a woman is what God determined from the beginning.
God answers to no one. Nor is God mindful of what we think is the way things should be done. God knows all things before they ever happen, because nothing ever has or will ever happen without God’s providence allowing it to happen. Regardless of what some people may think, God has never been taken by surprise.

God is an eternal being. Time does not apply to God. This is, without question, beyond what our natural minds can comprehend. God is infinitely more majestic than anything anyone could ever imagine. And to help us to understand and to vaguely comprehend all that God is, God moved upon men in times past, over a span of 1600 years, to have them write a testament about God and bout God’s plan to restore humanity to intimacy with God once again. This testament is known as the Bible. God’s letter begins with the statement: “In the beginning, God created”. What, I ask, is so difficult with this?

All created things unflinchingly obey the commands of the sovereign God. Yet the only created being which is wonderfully fashioned in the image and in the likeness of God dares to scream NO! Why, I ask, do we do this? The answer is simple. SIN.
God has a moral law and God expects all of humanity to obey this law. A law which is impossible to obey because its application goes against the wickedness of every person’s fallen nature. And is why in the testament which God has given to humanity, there is repeatedly mentioned the propitiation that God provided on behalf of those who would believe.
Jesus Christ became that atonement. Humanity deserves one thing and one thing only. To be punished by the holy God for the sin and for the atrocities we all have committed against God. But God, because of love, came to this earth in the person of Jesus and willingly gave His life as a sacrifice to appease God’s wrath against a sinful and rebellious humanity. After taking upon Himself everything that God hates, the man Jesus was crushed under the weight of God’s anger. Only God was worthy. It was our sins that nailed God to the cross of Calvary. Then, the man Christ Jesus did what only God could do in raising Himself from the dead to be a living witness to the testament of His deity.
There were eye witnesses who saw Jesus die. There were eye witnesses who saw Jesus alive after being buried and, His resurrection. There were hundreds of eye witnesses who saw and spoke with Jesus, and several of these men including two of His half brothers pinned writings which became books in the New Testament Bible.

The factual evidence is irrefutable as to the historical record of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. No other world religion can stand up to the evidence put forth in Scripture that proves Jesus is God. Nor can Judaism, Roman Catholicism, Islam, Buddhism, or any other religious ideal transform a person’s life. This is why it is so evident that those who adhere to these false religions are yet dead in their spirit and reprobate in mind, and though they honor God with their words their hearts are so far from God.
No matter the years of advanced education, ignorance of the truth cannot deny the existence of God in the person of Jesus Christ. Their only argument is that they have chosen to not submit their lives to the sovereign will of the only true and living God Jesus Christ. Because they love sin above the knowledge of God. Fools everyone.

How impossible of a story is the Bible that anyone could have ever imagined to write! That God would die to save humanity. How impossible it is for anyone but God to tell of future events hundreds and thousands of years before they ever happened. And these events are recorded in other books throughout world history. How impossible is the transformation of a person’s life apart from God drawing to Himself those as vile as we are, to then begin a work of salvation that only God can accomplish. Those things we once did we no longer desire to do, because as God does, so do we now hate that which is immoral.
God has given the evidence of which no one can deny. God justly commands all people to repent and to believe in Jesus Christ for the remission of their sins. For without having done this, no person can enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. God demands that we are to love Him first and foremost, and, to love our neighbors as we love ourselves. These too are impossible acts without the help of God’s Holy Spirit, who indwells the recreated spirits and the renewed minds of those to whom God has given the privilege to be declared sons and daughters of righteousness.

It then becomes the commission of the Christian disciple to tell others about the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with the words they speak being confirmed by the evidence of a life forever changed. No greater example can be given to an unbelieving world than that of a wretched sinner whose life has been touched by God.
We have been given this natural life to prepare us for the eternal life to come. The truest love that one person can ever show to another is to tell them that God is angry with them, but also tell them that faith in Jesus Christ is their pardon. “Romans chapter 1 is the foundation of biblical preaching and of one on one witness”. And, if they choose to not believe, they will be damned to an eternal HELL. Where forever they will be tormented by the wrath of God with full knowledge of having no hope of salvation. This is the Gospel of God.

Distance ourselves we must from the heresy of TBN’s easy faith believism. Joel Osteen, TD Jakes, Kenneth Copeland and Paula White, are God’s judgment upon a society that desires that which God hates. Apostates who promise heaven where God does not reside. The true leaders of the church of Jesus Christ have been given a God imposed mandate to uphold the truths of Scripture and, a moral obligation to rightly understand what Scripture teaches so that they can correctly teach the community of believers, Without the knowledge of right biblical doctrine, the believer cannot practice right biblical behavior.
It is a terrible responsibility to be called by God to tell people “Thus Saith God!” Heretics have no regard for the people of God, therefore it is just that God’s preachers have no regard for false teachers. They must be exposed in hopes of snatching away God’s elect from following their pathway into the depths of HELL’s fire which is reserved for false teachers. This too is the Gospel of God.

This message is not one that is happily welcomed. But when the message is preached and a sinner believes, their gratitude is sincere in knowing that their name is eternally etched into the Lambs Book of Life. The fields are white for the harvest. Pray that God will send laborers into the field…

COULD ZACHERY TIMS DEATH BE A MODERN DAY EXAMPLE OF GOD’S JUDGMENT UPON A FALSE TEACHER

Filed under: Writing — William D. Simpson @ 9:07 PM
Tags: , , , , , , ,

Could Zachery Tims untimely death be an act of the judgment of GOD foretold in Scripture that would come upon false Sheppard’s whose motivation was not for the care of GOD’s people, but is rather of themselves?

Read (Ezekiel 34:1-16) – GOD is the enemy of false teachers, and will eventually bring judgment upon those who misrepresent GOD’s truth.

I do not question Tims profession of faith in Jesus Christ. I do though question the sincerity of his salvation because the messages he preached were entirely man-centered and shamefully void of the true Gospel which the apostle Paul wrote that pastors were to proclaim and to defend. Jesus said that the true child of GOD hears His voice, and that GOD knows them because they follow after Christ. (JOHN 10:27)
Tims gospel, which I have heard in person, was not established upon biblical doctrine, but is that of the human desire for health, wealth and self-esteem. (ROMANS 16:17-18) The Word of Faith gospel. The Trinity Broadcasting Network gospel. A gospel which is a combination of Pentecostalism and the Faith Movement, whose root teachings stem from a 19th century New Thought cult made popular by E.W. Kenyon. After Kenyon came Kenneth Hagin, Oral Roberts and A.A. Allen. Then came Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, T.D. Jakes and Creflo Dollar. And is now a gospel being proclaimed to the world through all forms of media and literary art by their sons and daughters of the Word of Faith movement such as Paula White, Joel Osteen, and, the recently deceased Zachery Tims.

This is a false gospel which lowers GOD to mans level while raising man to GOD’s. This is dangerous! GOD is sovereign. Man is sinful. GOD is holy, holy, holy. Man is wicked. GOD made the way for man to be saved. Man must come to GOD on the terms GOD has established. This is to trust GOD to accomplish the finished work of salvation made available only through the atonement which Jesus Christ became on our behalf. Tims preached the prosperity gospel. The Bible teaches that we are to give up all of our wants, needs and ambitions to the work GOD has called each Christian to walkout every day of our lives. To teach anything other than what Scripture reveals is the will of GOD is heresy. Scripture also reveals that the greatest damnation reserved in the depths of HELL is for those who teach another gospel. (GALATIANS 1:6)

I have a history with the Word of Faith movement. For twenty years I thought that those mentioned above were GOD’s generals. But the more I studied the Bible and sought GOD’s guidance in rightly dividing Scriptures truth, the more evident it became that what they were teaching was not of the GOD of the Bible. I withdrew myself from these people and have since surrounded myself with believers who hold to the central tenants of biblical doctrine. I encourage you to do the same.

While Tims’ family and friends, and congregants mourn over his untimely death, I feel it imperative to write this blog in hope that someone reading this will understand the urgency of the time we now find ourselves. The end of mans’ time is very near! Take notice at the world around us. The religious world and the secular world. Scripture too teaches that we will know that the time of Christ’s second coming draws near. False teachings will abound. People will be deceived. It makes no difference how appealing the presentation is. 99% truth is a lie! Most of what is being presented today as the Gospel of GOD is a false gospel.

None of which I have said is anything but my speculations. Still though, GOD’s Word is true. That which a man sows, he will also reap. I’m saddened that Zachery Tims has now met GOD face to face, and was found apostate. Take heed lest you too be found wanting in the presence of the only true GOD Jesus Christ…

Note: According to authorities, there is no evidence of a crime. There is though some speculation in reference to a white powdered substance found in the room. Tims had a history with drugs. Could he have possibly kept hidden from his wife and congregation a temporary relapse to an escape from reality? This kind of behavior is not uncommon among the leaders of today’s false gospel. There are many questions of which I’m sure we will soon have the answers to.
