The Top Ten Things Jesus Taught

Someone has said that Jesus spoke more about eternal damnation than any other topic.  Although it seemed correct to me, I wanted to confirm it to be certain.

So I decided to search out the matter for myself in Scripture, in order to see what topics Jesus mostly spoke about.  First I manually searched the Gospels, Acts, and Revelation, and developed a list of words and phrases representing 130 major and minor topics Jesus spoke about.

Then using e-Sword, an electronic Bible software program, I counted the verses in those six books of the Bible in the New American Standard Bible (NASB), where Jesus used those words or phrases (all counts are estimates).  The results of my analysis are in the table below (with the total verse-counts for the top ten topics bolded in the right-hand column), followed by my comments and conclusions at the end of the article.

Topic Total Number of Verses Where Jesus Mentioned Topic
God (166) verses spoken by Jesus containing the word "God."  [Please note: These were not necessarily teachings about God.  However, if you add to these verses all the instances where Jesus spoke about the Father (61), Himself (117), and the Holy Spirit (32), that adds an additional 210 verses, which would bring the total to 376 verses altogether.]  376

Counting Method
I understand that some verses recorded in more than one of the Gospels refer to the same incident, and someone may say this is double counting. But the Holy Spirit inspired the writing of Scripture, and even these redundancies were inspired.  Repetition is a proven method of teaching, and not all topics are repeated in the synoptic Gospels, which proves that there was a reason why some were repeated.  Moreover, since I applied the same standard or method of counting to all topics, it is an equitable method of estimating.  This method may not give us the precise number of times our Lord spoke or taught on each topic, but it does give us an estimate – an order of magnitude, which allows us to rank each topic in relation to one another.

Furthermore, I did not merely accept the total number of results for a word or phrase in each computerized Bible search.  I visually scanned the search results to try and get an accurate estimate of the number of verses spoken only by Jesus.  Then I did not even count all the verses in which Jesus spoke that particular word or phrase, but often filtered out results that were not relevant to the topic.  For example, when I searched for the word "condemn," I did not count every verse where Jesus used this word.  I did not count the instances where He said that the scribes and Pharisees would condemn Him to death.  This same method of counting was used for all topics, in order to avoid any artificial inflation of the totals for each one.

Also in Revelation, only the words that Jesus spoke were counted.  These are primarily in the first three chapters and the last chapter.  However, technically the entire book of Revelation is “the revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants what must soon take place.” (Rev 1:1a).  You see, the opening verse of that book says, "He sent and communicated it by His angel to His bond-servant John" (Rev 1:1b).  So although the Lord sent His angel to communicate these words, they were His words, and it was all His revelation that God gave to Him.  That means all topics covered in Revelation were from Jesus, although they were not all spoken directly by Him.  There are many verses about God, heaven, hell, the lake of fire, the pit, worship, end times, the Great Tribulation, plagues, judgments, wrath, woes, the Lord Jesus Christ and His soon return, witnesses, the kingdom of God, the harvest, the devil, false prophets, righteousness, deeds, and eternal judgment.  These would increase the total number of verses we would need to count for those topics in this analysis, and would help to further prove my point about their frequency.  However, none of these verses that are part of the revelation of Jesus Christ were counted, unless they were spoken by Jesus.

Major Topics That Jesus Spoke About
I mentioned in my opening of this article that I wanted to confirm whether Jesus spoke more about eternal damnation than any other topic.  Through this exhaustive study, I confirmed that my thesis was a fairly close approximation.  However, it is more accurate to say that there are more verses in the Bible that record Jesus speaking about eternal damnation than on any other single topic, except God and heaven.

God and Heaven
Without any question, He mentioned and taught about God more than any other topic.  It should be no surprise that God’s Son came to earth and mostly instructed us about God. After this, He spoke about the glorious place where God lives with His holy angels, and all His saints, those holy ones, who love Him and have been made perfect.  He used expressions to describe this place like “heaven,” “the temple of My God,” “the city of My God,” “the new Jerusalem,” “kingdom of heaven,” “kingdom of God,” or simply “kingdom,” as well as “Paradise,” “My Father’s house,” “throne,” “thrones,” “life,” “eternal life,” “find it,” “that age,” and “the age to come.”  This is the beautiful place He invited us to go and spend eternity with Him, where all the saints will worship Him and God, His Father, forevermore.

Eternal Damnation
However, He spoke almost as much about eternal damnation.  Besides using the word “hell” itself (Greek, gehenna), He used many other expressions like “destruction,” “pit,” “judgment,” the place of “weeping and gnashing of teeth,” “on whomever it falls,” “it will scatter him like dust,” “cut it down,” “perish,” “slay them in my presence,” “thrown out,” “thrown away,” “thrown into the fire,” “thrown into the furnace,” “thrown into prison,” “outside,” “outer darkness,” “burned,” “fire,” “eternal fire,” “unquenchable fire,” “fiery,” “furnace,” “worm,” “I will also deny him,” “lose,” “woe,” “torturers,” “taken away,” “depart,” “I do not know you,” “depart from me,” “condemned,” “condemn,” “condemnation,” “ashamed,” “your soul is required of you,” “erase his name from the book of life,” and “eternal punishment.”  These expressions all represent the eternal wrath of the Holy One against wickedness and lawlessness (sin).  They all express the perfect holiness of God, Who in His great love for mankind is warning us not to go to that terrible place.

Evangelism, His Divine Identity, Prayer, Faith, Love, the Father, and Good Deeds
After these top three topics (God, heaven, and eternal damnation), then he spoke about preaching the gospel (i.e., evangelism) and making disciples. The next major topic He spoke about was His own divine identity, which He disclosed using various titles.  After that the next major topic was prayer.  After that one, faith was a major topic.  Love was one of His top ten themes, along with mercy, forgiveness, and compassion. The heavenly Father was often upon His lips, in part because of His great love for the Father, and His total dependence upon Him.

He spoke a lot about doing deeds and works, using expressions like "does the will of God," "acts on them," "obey," "observe all that I commanded you," "keep My word," "kept the word," "kept My Word," "keep the commandments," "keep My commandments," and "that slave whom his Master finds doing so when He comes." He taught that “…those who have done what is good will rise to live, and those who have done what is evil will rise to be condemned.”

Hearing
After these top ten topics, then came His constant emphasis on hearing His Word, which ranked eleventh without combining it with other expressions.

The Return of Jesus Christ
His Second Coming was the next major topic, ranking twelfth on the list! He spoke about it quite often, using various expressions like "the coming of the Son of man," "the Son of Man coming," "which day your Lord is coming," "that day and hour no one knows," "the Master of that slave will come on a day," "the Master of the house is coming," "He comes," "kingdom come," "coming on the clouds," "the day that the Son of Man is revealed," "the days of the Son of Man," "when the Son of Man comes," "will the Son of Man be in His day," "I will come," "I am coming," "until I come," "come on you suddenly," and specifically referred to the rapture saying, "one will be taken."  And when He spoke about it, He often said it would happen suddenly, unexpectedly, quickly, soon, and without delay.  He emphasized the need to be ready for it.  Yet so few today ever preach or teach about His soon return.

The Name of the Lord, Power, Authority, the Heart, Children, Sin, and Repentance
And He spoke a lot about the Name of the Lord, which ranked as His thirteenth most frequent topic, including the Father’s Name, Jesus’ Name, and the Name of the Holy Spirit.  Power and authority were not major themes, but they did come up often, as did the matters of the heart, and children.  He preached a lot against sin, naming many sins specifically, and preached that men should repent, telling them not to sin any more.

Since He Himself said, “the mouth speaks what the heart is full of,” we know what His heart was full of, based on the things He said. And those things He spoke about most of all were the things that His heart was overflowing with the most.

Grace
He never once mentioned the word grace publicly, *but only once privately in answer to the apostle Paul's prayer about his thorn (2 Co 12:9), and that was not about grace for salvation.  Yet He was full of grace (Jn 1:14), and both grace and truth were realized through Him (Jn 1:17).  So while He may not have spoken publicly about it at all, He certainly demonstrated it. He welcomed sinners and ate with them.  He also forgave them freely when they repented, and told parables that depicted grace, such as The Prodigal Son (Lk 15:11-32) and The Lost Sheep (Lk 15:1-7).

Peace and Unity
He did not speak very much about peace, in fact He said He did not come to bring peace to the earth (Mt 10:34), yet this is a major topic among those in the world, and many Christians wear the peace symbol, which is satanic.  Those of us who know Him have a peace within our hearts that He gives us (Jn 14:27), and peace with God, but world peace will not come to the earth until after He returns to reign on the earth.

And one of the topics He taught about the very least was unity, which he merely mentioned in three verses, yet that is what the ecumenical church talks about the most.

Prosperity
Money was certainly not a major topic of His, coming up about as often as the heart, but almost everything he said about riches, prosperity, and wealth was negative.  Yet today the prosperity preachers seem to mostly preach about wealth and prosperity, as if this is the central message of the Bible.

Prophetic Confirmation
My findings in this study were confirmed by the message Lord Jesus gave to sister Rachael Mushala:

“Apostasy has gone out into the world. Many false prophets have gone out into the world teaching doctrines from hell and leading many souls to hell. You must be careful and not follow miracles. Didn’t I warn you in My Word that these false prophets would come? And now they are here, preaching only about prosperity and never condemning sin. All preachers talk about now is prosperity and money, but what is money if your soul burns in hell? Didn’t I say to sell all you have and give the money to the poor and then follow Me? Money is the root of all evil. Don’t be allured by it. It is what has allured many preachers. All they care about is filling their pockets and filling their churches, but they never preach repentance. I know that while you are on earth you are going to need money, and I will provide you with just enough. The rest of your treasures will be in heaven, safe. All the riches you long for will be stored up in heaven where moths cannot destroy. This earth is going to be destroyed with fire, and nothing will be left standing.”

He said, “My heart aches at all the souls being led to hell by false prophets. They are the majority; very few pastors preach My Word. Very few preach repentance. It doesn’t matter if they have many followers or they perform miracles. Even satan can perform miracles. Do not follow miracles. That is why I said in My Word that many will come to Me on the last day and say we performed miracles in Your name, but I will reply, 'I do not know you.' ”

Putting it All Together
In summary, the top ten things Jesus Christ spoke about were God, heaven, hell, making disciples, His own divine identity, prayer, faith, love, His heavenly Father, and the importance of keeping His Word by acting upon it.

I hope that this study has helped to show you what is important to Jesus, and helped to disprove some errors that we find in the Church today.  There is so much deception now in the Church that we must be careful.  Do not be deceived into hell!  You should be careful when a preacher always preaches about grace, but never talks about hell or never preaches against specific sins that will take you there.  When you hear preachers that are talking mostly about prosperity, peace, unity, or any of the other topics that Jesus seldom spoke about, or that He never spoke about, then beware!  If they make any of these minor topics their main theme, to the exclusion of the major ones our Lord emphasized, then you know they are not teaching according to the pattern of Jesus.  They are “majoring in the minors,” and that should be a big warning signal to you. 

Let me be clear that if Jesus mentioned something one time, it is important.  But we must preach the whole counsel of God, not just our favorite topics.  The true messengers of God are preaching mostly on the same things that Jesus emphasized, because those are still the most important things on His ever-aching heart.  His messengers are still preaching about God, heaven, and eternal damnation, emphasizing the need for faith, prayer, and making disciples.  They are preaching against sin, calling people to repentance, so that they will not perish. They are still preaching righteousness and truth, teaching us to hear the Word of God, keep it, be doers of it, and bear good fruit for God’s glory, living a life of love, compassion, and mercy. They are preaching about the Name of the Lord, as well as our Lord's soon return, and the need to be ready for it.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Please see my explanation of this in my post called "Do You Want to Know Jesus?"

Zipporah Mushala’s Second Testimony of Hell

Zipporah Mushala
Previously I posted Zipporah Mushala's Testimony of Hell. This is now Zipporah Mushala’s second testimony of hell, along with visions, warnings and revelations she received from the Lord.  She states:

How I came to know the Lord
Praise be to Christ the King for this great opportunity to share with you my spiritual experiences. Firstly I would like to share a brief background of how I came to know the Lord, as I did not do so in my previous testimony. Being at a boarding school from 8th to 12th grade made me have a great chance of rebelling against everything my parents had taught me was the right thing for a Christian to do. I lived a double life and hated church and anything to do with God generally. If someone told me anything about God, I would roll my eyes in displeasure.

On August 31 2011, I suddenly started feeling strange. That night, my supper was tasteless and I felt like I was going to die. I could literally feel spirits following me but at that time, I did not realize that they were demons. After supper, I went and lay on my bed which was unusual for me to do at that time as I was a TV addict. I then started going through the section in the news paper where people write in memory of their loved ones which was also unusual for me to do. For some reason that I didn’t know, I started pitying the late people. Maybe it was because I would join them that very night.

Even though my sister Rachael also lived a double life, she was more spiritual than I and so she told me that we should pray before going to bed but I told her, “Just what is the point in praying anyway?” We ended up praying but I did so with a half -heart. That night, I dreamt I was in a certain place with a lot of other girls. We were all wearing dark blue gowns and some men were tying ropes against our waists. I didn’t want to be part of what seemed like an initiation into Satanism and so I started crying and one of the men scolded me in my mother tongue, Lozi.

Suddenly, I woke up and I could feel a terrible pain around my waist where the rope had been in the dream. It was so horrible, I wanted to wake my sister up but I just stared at her and said nothing. My heart was stopping to beat slowly and I felt weak. I knew I was going to die. When you are about to die you just know it. I also suddenly knew I was going to hell. No one had to tell me that. I saw a pitch dark pit which looked endless with flames at the bottom. At that moment, I was so weak but all I could think of was, “Lord save me.” I managed to whisper it and I suddenly regained my strength. At that moment, my sister woke up and told me a voice had woken her up that I was under satanic attack. She then prayed for me and the pain miraculously disappeared.

My holiday experience drove me to start reading the Bible at school but one of my close friends and roommate would discourage me and say. “So you think you are now a real Christian, you are just wasting your time because both you and I are going to hell!” In November I read the testimony of Angelica Zambrano and I heard a voice telling me that her testimony was true even before I read it. I then allowed the Lord to change me and I received the baptism of the Holy Spirit on 2nd December 2011. From then on, the Lord has been giving me messages.

“Blessed is he that hears and acts positively towards the words in this testimony,” The LORD JESUS.

Those in Hell for Being Artificial
There was a white woman in hell. Even though the Lord had blessed her with long hair, she went and extended it. This woman was naked and in serious flames that looked like liquid fire. All she would do was scream, scream and scream. Her hands were lifted up and she said, “I am here because I used extensions.”

I saw another section of hell for those who change God’s image. Hell was pitch dark as usual and I only saw what I saw because it was the Lord’s will .It must be understood that hell is a spiritual place and not physical so fire and darkness can exist at once there. This section of hell was rocky and there was no one in sight except for three demons in form of fearsome looking dragons. They were flying all over the place, flapping their huge wings, and screaming, “Uuh, uuh, uuh!” in attempt of making the place more lonesome. The place was fiercely hot and the people were in small pits in the rocks. The pits were just large enough to occupy them and they found difficulty moving either to the right or left. Their skin would fall off like it was made of plastic and their bones would be exposed. Then the process would then start all over again. These people were also continuously suffocating from the smoke of the intense fire and the stench of their own rotting flesh. They knew there were other people in that section but they were only worried about themselves and their families back on earth. Liquid fire would spout continuously from these pits and there were groans from all over the place.

The Lord allowed me to hear the thoughts of one woman there. Her hands were clasped together and worms were pushing their way up between her fingers.  She was looking up to heaven with a frown on her face. She was thinking, “Lord, is my daughter being taken care of on earth? How I wish someone would tell her not put all those artificial things I made her to be doing” I understood that she meant artificial hair, painted nails etc. Please come back to the Lord and be proud of how he made you. The devil will entice you to sin on this earth but will laugh at you in hell and call you a fool. There is no chance of ever getting out of hell. Suddenly, one of the flying dragons pulled one woman out of her pit by her throat with its mouth. Though these dragons were huge, their mouths were pointed so its mouth could fit in the pit.  I noticed that she had lipstick on. The dragon told her in a rough voice, “You fool! You loved the things of the world!”

You Cannot Be Artificial and Holy at the Same Time
I saw a girl in fervent prayer. She was kneeling down in her room with a Bible in her hand. She was praying with fire. However, I noticed that she had on a short skirt, artificial hair, eye shadow, painted nails, tweezed eyebrows with eyebrow pencil on them, lipstick and heavy jewelry (i.e., neck chain and earrings). I have listed these things because the Lord instructed me to do so.  There were also two demons with her in the room. One of them sat on her stuff making itself comfortable but the other remained standing. They were looking at her with mocking smiles and glee. The demon sitting down had a book full of names in its hand. These were the names of those on their way to hell. Glancing at her, it wrote her name down in the book. The demon standing pointed its finger at her saying, “You are lukewarm and God is going to spill you in hell.” She could not see or hear any of this but only the Lord and I (See 1Timothy 2:9- 10 and 1 Peter 3:3). The Bible also says that which is highly esteemed among men is an abomination in the sight of God in Luke 16: 15.The Lord said, “They even want to expand parts of their bodies. They get boob jobs, lip jobs, add eyelashes on top of the ‘not so good ones’ which I made’ and add nails etc. They are shameful.”

You Are Easy Prey for Demons When You Are Artificial
I had a dream. I was about to go into a shop when a girl of about nine came up to me.  She just stared at me and said nothing. I saw demons in her in the spirit and before I knew it, the Holy Spirit took control of me and I began casting them out. The girl shut her eyes in an attempt not to look at me but after sometime, the demons were cast out. I stared hard at her to see if there were still any demons but I could not discern anything. It was not until I put my hand on her chest that I discerned that she had been delivered. The Lord brought to my attention her artificial hair that it would attract even more demons to enter her though she had been delivered. This can be found in Luke 11: 24-26.

One day, I was evangelizing and I was wondering which verse I could use to show that artificial hair was sinful when suddenly, I saw a vision with the scripture 1 Corinthians 11:15 on it. It says that God gave a woman her hair as a covering.

Warning to Those Who Love Walking Naked and to the Dancers
The Lord personally gave me the above sub-title. The Lord said, “It is a disgusting sight when I see women, even young adolescents making cleavages. They just love to expose their bodies. They are possessed with the spirit of nakedness. They just can’t dress up but they have to expose their legs in short skirts and bodies in trousers and tight clothes. Tell them to repent, because if they don’t they will go to the centre of hell where there is the horror of horrors, as they have heard this warning. Tell them to respect My temple because they did not create themselves but I the Lord of Lords did!” He screamed this in anger with a clenched fist and tears trickling down his holy white garments.

 “The devil has not only possessed women but the men too. They wear a pair of trousers and drag it down and they think it is cool (Sagging). The men plait their hair and also make all sorts of lines in their heads with shaving machines when they shave it (shades in the hair). Their portion is the section with pits in hell if they do not repent. However if they hear this warning and do not repent, they’ll regret the day they were born in the centre of hell. That is not enough; they bounce about like balls with pride .The women also develop pride because of their clothes and treat others like dirt. These days, most people no longer even go to church to worship but to interact, show off their clothes and find what they like to call ‘love’ from those of the opposite sex. Tell them am waiting for them to repent with real undying love and I’ll never turn them away.”

To the dancers and those who sing or listen to non gospel music or gospel rap, rock, reggae or any other worldly beat. “The devil is timing you. He is giving you spiritual sleeping pills.” I saw a music concert and everyone there was covered by one big hand --the hand of satan. It left a whitish jelly-like liquid on top of their heads. The Lord said, “The stuff he leaves on their heads makes worldly songs irresistible to them and they just can’t get enough. He hopes to catch them in their slumber and throw them to hell.”

The Lord said, “Many will hate you for this testimony but remember that God’s people were never loved from ages past because they always spoke the truth. I will be with you and will love you more than they can ever love you. They will call you many names and even say you have run mad and that you are an extremist. They will even use scriptures to discredit your testimony but don’t worry; Satan also has his own agents. Do not say anything in defense but remain silent.”

Those Who Live a Double Life
“They love to praise me with their lips but their hearts are far away from me. They say they are Christians but want to live a double life. They read testimonies about how I want holiness of the outward and inner man yet they do not want to obey. They love to listen to those who comfort them that they are not sinning and they comfort themselves that they are not the only ones doing what they do. Tell them that in hell it is each man for himself. They use My temple to do right and wrong. As it is now in their state, they do not belong to me but to My enemy. Their punishment will be far worse. Tell them to repent. I the Lord love them, and it is not My desire that they should go to hell. I do not force Myself on anyone.  Let them not obey Me if they do not want to because I want obedience from the heart. I do not take pleasure in those who serve Me with undecided hearts. I would rather have one person serving Me in truth and spirit than the whole world serving Me with undecided hearts.”

Those Who Love to Talk Carelessly
Those who love to speak without care, love or consideration. “They cut others with their words. They have led many to commit suicide and give up on life or abandon their faith. They make others unhappy. They also speak negative words against me, My holy angels, Christianity, and My holy people. The most horrible kind of worms will bore their tongues and demons will give them the worst kind of torture. Come back to Me. They also use frustration as an excuse to say all kinds of negative things against Me. They say, “God has failed me!” “God doesn’t care!” among other things when the Bible says God cares and He can never fail you. Sometimes, they are just not patient for God to do what they ask or their lives are not right. Tell them to be careful. I am not mortal as they are. They also speak lies and call them ‘little lies’ and normal. Their ‘normal’ and ‘little lies’ have a big punishment.” The Lord also said, “Do not keep grudges or hate each other. How can you expect Me to forgive you if you do not forgive others?”

A Man of God in Hell
Mark Woodman
I was in hell again and I saw a man in flames. A lot worms were crawling all over him. He was sort of drowning in the flames, as he would stand up and fall on his knees again. The Lord was holding my hand as hell is so horrifying. I recognized the man and screamed in horror at his identity as I had thought he was in heaven. I loved this man when he was on earth and believed with all my heart that he was in heaven. I had always imagined him in green gardens and never in flames. The man is Mark Woodman. He was a staunch “Seventh Day Adventist” and did a lot in exposing the kingdom of darkness. I told the Lord, “This man can’t be here because he was a good man. What is he doing here?” I asked him in tears. The Lord said, “My child, cursed is he that obeys the law as they insist on pleasing Me through works and deny what I did for them on the cross.”

The Scripture says:  "For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: ‘Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.’ Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because 'the righteous will live by faith.'” (Gal 3:10-11)

Please allow me to clarify what the Lord told me about the reason why Mark is in hell.  The laws of the Old Testament that forbid eating certain foods and drinks, as well as the ceremonial laws like circumcision, were never given to us in the New Testament. We are free from those, and we who are in Christ do not rely upon them for our justification.  But God does tell us in the New Testament that he requires holiness outwardly and inwardly. These requirements are not ceremonial laws or rituals, but commandments. Please do not confuse Mark's error with the Scriptural requirement.  It is an error to rely on the works of the Law for justification, but we do need to obey God's commandments and requirements for holiness.

When I saw him there, my world came crumbling down as I had always admired his zeal for God’s work.  My elder brother had a collection of his DVDs, and although I was not an Adventist, I had watched his videos in 2011.  At that time, I did not know that he had passed on in 2010, and I assumed he was still alive. That's why I always looked up to him in his videos.  It was not until I watched his goodbye videos that I learned he was late.

I asked the Lord why he kept giving me revelations of famous people in hell as they were so hard to deliver and received many criticisms and He told me, "It is because I have given you the courage to do so." May the Lord have mercy on us all.

Dolls, Cartoons and Secular TV
I saw a baby pram (stroller) with a lot of teddy bears. There were demons inside them. These demons were happy and mocking humans. They were saying, “Look just how easy it is for us to have access to human beings. The baby who will have this pram will be our toy.” And they all laughed loudly giving each other a high-five. The Lord also let me hear George in the cartoon Curious George. He was talking sweetly and innocently in the cartoon but would laugh loudly and sarcastically in the back ground at the people he was deceiving.

[Editor's Note on December 13, 2014: Last month, Zipporah stated: "In a separate vision, the Lord Jesus Christ showed me a satanic cartoon called "Monsters University." Previously, the Lord has shown us about how satan brings demons to children through satanic cartoons. He showed me this cartoon as one of them. It was made for a satanic purpose and there are demons that look like characters from this cartoon. I didn't know this cartoon existed, and it was only after this vision that I googled it and found it!"]

The Lord has several times warned against secular TV. He said that even if one was watching Christian TV, they should ask for guidance from the Holy Spirit as the devil is a deceiver. “You may not even be aware, but when you watch secular TV, your souls is in the hands of demons, and they do as they wish.” The Lord also showed me that some demons are also turned into clothes. They may look like normal clothes in the physical, but are something else in the spirit.

However, we should not be intimidated that demons have polluted so many things. We should just pray and they will be purified as God has got power over the devil.  Just pray.  Jesus also forbade the buying of clothes with evil  drawings (e.g., drawings of skulls, skeletons, evil cartoons etc.).  He also forbade clothes with seductive or any other unholy drawings. The Lord also revealed that sometimes, a substance to make people resist fasting is put in food.

They Classified it as Not Sin and Were Greedy with their Money and Possessions
I was praying recently and I saw a demon stark naked walking on one of the corridors in hell. It had the characteristics of a male and female at the same time. It was ugly and horrifying to look at. On one side of the corridor were cells. There were a lot of people covered with flames and worms in the cells. They were all rushing and stepping on each other in an attempt to escape the cells. They all wanted to come to the front. These people had the number 666 embedded in their foreheads with something that looked like a tough metal. This metal went way inside their heads until the back. Worms and snakes would unwrap from the metal and fall inside their skulls. They would scream horribly “ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!” in torture, falling down. The demon took pleasure in their torments and laughed loudly, with some human flesh in its mouth.  It then got a thick metal poll and began crushing one man’s head. The Lord said, “These are those who did not want to help those in need even when they were capable. They were greedy with their possessions and so demons will be greedy with their flesh.” He continued, “They also convinced themselves while knowing the truth in their hearts that some things were not sin. For example, they classified trousers as not sinful for women, because they cared more about pleasing the world and themselves than they did about pleasing Me. They repeatedly committed ‘little sins’ but no sin is little. I will not favour anyone.”

Those Who Bowed Down to lucifer
Those willingly who serve satan on earth. Some will be thrown from a high cliff into boiling lava. I saw a demon dragging a woman to a cliff. As he dragged her, tiny insects whose sting was like fire infested her legs and were climbing all over her. She was in so much pain that she looked lifeless and made no resistance to the insects. The huge, muscular demon threw her over the cliff with one hand like a rag. A huge snake with thorns in its mouth was waiting for her down the cliff in the lava. It would not burn. Before she could even reach down, it swallowed her and she passed through the body of the snake till she came out at the end. Her flesh could barely be seen. Only bones stood. Before she could even take a breath, the seething lava carried her into a tunnel and I saw no more of her.

Those Who Make up Their Own Teachings and Do Not Believe in the Afterlife
“These stubbornly adhered to their own teachings contrary to the Bible. They used science and reason to dispute the existence of God and the afterlife mostly to comfort them. Most of them knew in their hearts that they believed a lie.” I saw a lot of people on their marks as if ready for a race. At the end was one apple tree with no fruits. There was only one apple at the foot of the tree. At a demon’s whistle, they all ran at top speed for the one fruit even hurting each other in the process. When they reached the destination however, there was nothing but huge wheels, which started spinning at top speed with the people on them. Heads were being cut off and bodiless heads were just bouncing all over the place screaming “Nooo nooo nooo!” One demon holding a huge garden fork was standing by watching and it gave a soft laughter. It crossed its legs while turning an ‘apple’ round and round in its hand and said, “Humans, so easy to deceive.” The Lord also said that on the gate of hell, the words “Welcome To Hell” are written because in his word, it is written, ask and you’ll receive, seek and you will find, knock and the door will be opened to you. He said it is because you are being welcomed to the place you were seeking on earth.               

The devil on his Throne
I also saw the devil on his throne with demons around him in imitation of the Lord and his angels. The throne area was filled with a horrible stench. I also saw an altar. A man was brought in and burned on the altar and the devils and his demons would inhale the smell as if it was a pleasant aroma. This man was not dying. A demon then dug its teeth into the contents of his stomach, and he convulsed in shocking pain. I have never seen such a reaction. The demons would also make animal-like sounds.

Demons also make human beings who danced to unholy songs dance fervently in hell against their wish.  The demons would whip them with a rod, which had leather straps and sharp hooked metals at the end. They also felt the heat and pain a hundred times more than they did on earth. The fire and torture was also intense. It was a hundred times more than that on earth. You do not want to be in such a situation and neither do you want that for your brother, wife, mother or anyone you love.  Please repent and warn them too. The pleasures of this earth are not worth eternal torture. The devil gives you nothing for so much.
                                        
The Rapture
I saw in a vision written in  the sky, "THE RAPTURE IS AT HAND. PREPARE NOW FOR IN JUST A MINUTE, YOU WILL NO LONGER BE ABLE TO ENTER."

I also saw people going up in the rapture. I noticed that they were all wearing pure white garments and had the words, “JESUS FREAK” written on their foreheads. The Lord said, “They call those who want to serve me in truth, spirit and holiness “Jesus freaks.” Tell them that only those Jesus freaks are going up in the rapture when I come.  People will be shocked that I came. They will say, “We did not think he would come so soon.”

During prayers at church one day, I saw a mob of demons exiting hell for earth. They told me, “We’re going to stop the rapture.” I told them, "You can’t stop the rapture” and then they replied, “Then we are going to stop people from going in the rapture.” With that, they made for a certain street and started hugging people from behind. If the person’s name was John, the demon would also have the name John written on its forehead. This meant that that demon was assigned to this particular person. The demons began to whisper to the people they held captive, There is no “God, There is no rapture, and Just enjoy the world a little bit.” After saying this, the demon would withdraw from the person and laugh secretly with its hand over its mouth. One of the deceived people then began shouting loudly, “There is no God!”

People Will Repent
I saw a group of youth walking in the tunnel to hell. They were singing one popular song in one accord. They also stubbornly said it that they loved the fact that they were going to hell. Suddenly, most of them turned back and started looking for something in desperation. I asked them what they were doing and one of them said, “We are hungry and thirsty for the Lord.” The place they were looking in seemed dry and barren but they were finding green pastures (Isaiah 49:9). The Lord told me, “The world is barren in My Word, but there are a few green pastures.”

Warning to Jehovah’s Witnesses
“They have gone out into the world and call themselves My witnesses. They witness nothing about Me. They teach anti-Christ doctrines like, that there is no hell. This way, they make people relax in their sins. Their teachings are against everything I taught. I said there is hell, they say there is no hell. I said, the grave is not the end of a person’s life, they say the grave is the end. I said I will come again, they say I will not come again. I said in My word that I will pour out My Spirit in the last days but they say that spiritual gifts do not exist anymore. They also deny My Holy Spirit and say that is not a Person but just a force. They are clearly against Me. How they like to use human knowledge to explain My Word instead of being led by the Holy Spirit! They are spiritually sleeping. Tell them that not one member of that church will enter My holy kingdom. Not even one! They had better amend their ways and give up their doctrines.”

Fearless
Jesus was telling me so many things that were heavy in the sense that they were sensitive and would receive much opposition. I was worried and thinking, “How on earth am I going to say all this?” He could read my thoughts and he looked at me with a smile on his face. He suddenly gave me a hug and I felt like electricity was passing through my body. I was also filled with a joy that made my heart dance. I felt really strong inside and he said, “There do you feel better now?”  I nodded and gave him a smile. He said, “I wish the situation was better right now, as in that of heaven instead of hell. We cannot however ignore the case of those who are being deceived. However, I think you and your sister (Rachael) need a break from hell. I am going to show you the glories of heaven soon. Just do not remain silent, but tell the world My messages, so that their blood does not remain on your head. You are My watchman. The Lord had  given Rachael and I Ezekiel 33:6. It  says, But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not  blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes someone’s life, that person’s life will be taken because of their sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for their blood. (NIV).

A Trash Can
The Lord pointed at something and said, “Do you see that? What do you think it is?” I saw something being spilled into a dark pit. It looked like a waterfall or sand. I answered, “Sand?” He brought the view closer, and I could see that it was not sand at all, but countless human beings falling into a pit! He said, “This place is a trash can, the tares are gathered and burnt in here.” These people were from every race, tribe and language, the young and the old. There were Mongoloids, Eskimos, Masais, Buddhists, Hindus, spiritualists, prostitutes, the blind, mothers, fathers and children. The list is endless. Yes, even children, when they know what is wrong and right, must choose their destination. They were all falling into hell in different positions. Some were falling shoulder first, stomach first, head first, back first, hand first etc. at the speed of light. Some were clothed, some were not.

The Lord said with pain in His voice, “They are living on earth, ignoring Me like I don’t exist. Especially in these secular movies, they create a scenario where the people have a ‘perfect life’ chasing their own pleasure, building their relationships and having their dream jobs with totally nothing to do with Me. It is unfortunate for them, because they have terribly deceived themselves. They do not think so, but they desperately need Me to save them. In just a snap of a finger, they may be dead and they’ll find themselves in this horrendous place. They have to repent; they just have to if they want to be saved, because I can never receive them into my kingdom when they are dead. They did not want to associate themselves with Me in life and they will surely not associate with Me in death. People who watch these movies also end up behaving the same. Come back to Me now before the door is closed.” He said this part with urgency in His voice.

He put His hand on my shoulder and said, come and see this. There were cauldrons with boiling lava and people in them! The flesh of these people was being washed away from their bones by it. One man in a cauldron upon seeing Jesus began unleashing insults on Him. He said, “I’ll get you yet, God!” and some other horrible things I would rather not repeat. When the man insulted Jesus, I felt like a knife had been driven through my heart and I told him, “If there is anyone you want to blame, it is yourself and the demons that deceived you into to this place. Your own sinful pleasures have landed you here!” But the Lord told me, “Don’t mind them, they belong to their father, the devil.” The Lord just looked at him sadly and said, “In life you insulted Me. You thought and said you did not need Me, and even in death, you continue to insult Me and are not repentant.” A fat, ugly demon with dirty, green saliva dripping from its mouth then came and drowned him in the lava. Then the Lord told me, “When the people in this place ask for my mercy and say they have repented, it is not because they are sorry for their sins but because they are in pain. They are all just like this man.”

He continued, “This is the result for all those who did not want to have anything to do with Me in life. This is not all but just one of the least punishments. From here, these people will be transferred to other sections for punishment. These people thought, 'What a fulfilled life I have. I have all the money, happiness and just what else can I need?' I sent my people to them, but they refused to listen, and some of them even said, 'God is for the poor and hopeless that need to be comforted.' They did not know that it was demons that were whispering to them.” Some people in this section are also those who were racist or used foul language on earth. I saw no limit of torture in hell. Demons did as they pleased, and they did it with zeal and delight. When new people landed, they felt a new surge of energy. They would walk about majestically with pride. I also want you to know that demons never get tired of torturing these people. The Lord also disapproved of dirty jokes, either saying or listening to them.

Those Who Were Sophisticated
I saw something that looked like a hut, but this ‘hut’ was in flames. There were men and women inside and they were walking about. The fire did not fill up the whole room, but was just at the walls, and so the people were not burning but just feeling the intense heat. I also noticed that they were dragging their feet and were laboring to walk as if in pain. They were in constant fear of being burnt ‘alive’ in the building from the fire. Some were saying, “Call the fire brigade we are all going to burn in here!” These people also had wine glasses with what they thought was wine. However, I noticed there were also snakes inside the glasses. The people would ravenously drink what they thought was wine as if a magnetic force was pulling the glasses to their mouths. The snakes had sharp pointed teeth in their mouths and would get a good bite at the people’s throats and they would scream horribly. However, when their wine reappeared, as it continuously did, they could not stop themselves from drinking it.

These people also had black ghostly eyes and scratched bloody faces. I particularly noticed one woman. When she drank, she immediately fell down, her throat bursting open and a black liquid gushed out. The ‘wine’ was in real sense acid. Jesus said, “Do you know why these people are in an excluded place for themselves? It is because they thought they were sophisticated and knowledgeable about the things of the world. They liked to be set apart and thought they were far above everyone. In hell, they are also set apart. In so doing however, these people treated other people as trash, developed pride and looked down on the less privileged. People in hell also experience a deep, deep, overwhelming loneliness. They also remember their earthly lives and just how simple it would have been to do the right thing.”

Advice to Those with Gifts of the Holy Spirit
“Do not have vain glory. The power you use is not yours but Mine. Don’t also think of yourselves as better off than others, and don’t think you know it all. If you do that, you are leaving a loophole for the devil. Do not also think that just because am using you, you have exceptions from My word or that I’ll give you more chances to repent than anyone else. No, that is deceit from the unholy one. Do not also make up messages just to get yourself some attention; it will take you to hell. To the world, do not despise those I use. If they are in the wrong, just pray for them but do not ever utter a word against them as the scripture says, ‘Touch not the anointed and do my Prophets no harm.’ I, the Lord, will deal with them.”           

A Dark Meeting
I saw a meeting of demons. They were all wearing black gowns with hoods. Some of them had bony fingers with claws. They were of all kinds. They were talking and one of them who seemed to be of a high rank said, “What is the fastest and most effective method of deceiving human beings, because as you can see, the Holy One is about to return. We must prevent Christians from going with Him. We must! We cannot burn alone! No!” At this point, he was standing and hit the table roughly. They all started giving suggestions. Some were suggesting that they should upgrade the contents of secular TV, and worldly songs, as they were one of the best weapons, as humans imitated what they saw or heard, especially from famous people. They also suggested making more and more captivating Soap Operas to make people forget about God, and live their lives in these. They talked about many things including making indecent clothes seem innocent and fancy.

The same demon, whose name the Lord revealed to me as Peruza, requested for a book from another demon, which had just joined the meeting as it was straight from earth. The book had a lot of names in it. These were the names of those who were walking to hell, because of the life they were leading. Peruza started going through the names. The one’s whose names were glittering were those who were finding Christ. They were quite a number of them, and he got really furious. He said, “Who is assigned to bring these particular people to hell?” They all shook in fear but made no response. That was, however, quickly sorted out by the devil that walked in upon hearing the case and the particular demons were taken for punishment. New demons stronger than the previous were then assigned to bring these people down, but there were strong muscular angels with swords guarding them day and night, and they could not succeed. Praise be to the King of kings!

A Mighty Army
Suddenly, the Lord became joyful as if filled with a new hope. I was wondering, am I missing out on something? He said, “My heart is filled with gladness and I rejoice. The Father has looked upon the earth and is and will raise up a mighty army. Rejoice with Me at this news that makes Me want to burst. I laughed with the Lord loudly, and we made joyful screams while demons looked on with hateful stares. I saw people abandon kneeling down to statues and really seek God in spirit. Their eyes were opened and they knew the Lord. Women got rid of their artificial looks and indecent clothes, and cried out to God with all their hearts with bitterness and repentance. Young boys of about ten were preaching the Word, telling people to turn from their wicked ways. I saw the youth abandon their partying and lock themselves in their prayer closets. The Lord said, “Yes child, all this and more is what makes My heart glad. I will raise up a mighty army. Go and tell your testimony and you will see the wonders of God.”

I also saw a tall angel with a big sieve in his hands. I saw the whole world on that sieve. The Lord said, “My children are mixed with those of the world, and they have to be separated. That is what the angel is doing. Peace be with you all, I am never gone, but always with you in your daily lives.”

Ending Remarks
To whomever will read this: Please heed the Lord’s plea today as you only have a chance here on earth. The devil so desperately wants your soul and has planted demons to bring you down. Ask for the baptism of the Holy Spirit and you will be saved.  Jesus told me to tell you that He loves you more than you can ever imagine. May the Prince of Peace bless you.

Zipporah Mushala

[End of Testimony.]

Afterword
This is a sobering testimony for all of us.  I want to say a few words about the evangelist that Zipporah saw in hell, named Mark Woodman.  I had never heard of him before this testimony, and I did not have anything against Seventh Day Adventists (SDA).   I do not judge them for their beliefs, and I feel very sorry if this man is actually now in hell, after having been a preacher of the Bible. He was only around 34 or 35 years old when he succumbed to cancer. How tragic.  I do not claim to know his eternal destination, or be His judge, but I have simply reported what sister Zipporah said in her testimony.

I have since listened to a couple spots in a couple of his videos to see what he was like, and I can see that he seemed sincere in his beliefs.  He preached Christ and certainly did not like satan.  After he came out of the New Age movement, He joined the SDA, and sought to expose deception, but in the process he himself was deceived and he deceived others. My heart goes out to his loved ones who have lost him and who cared so deeply about him. But my heart also goes out to all the people whom he has deceived into hell, perhaps unknowingly, and those who are still being deceived by his teachings that live on.

In just the few short minutes I have listened to part of a video of his, and reviewed other video titles, I can see his theology was quite confused.  To the best of my understanding, he taught that the pre-Tribulation rapture is satanic deception, and taught against speaking with new tongues, saying that the modern Pentecostal and Charismatic movements are not part of true Christianity.  He says that "the Pentecostals and Charismatics today find themselves part of a system of worship which is not based on the Bible...and they are hiding and covering up the antichrist without even knowing it."  He taught against Sunday worship, that the Seventh day, Saturday, must be kept; that keeping Sunday is the mark of the beast.  He did not understand the things of the spirit, and taught that anyone who claims to have experienced heaven must have had a demonic encounter.

But Zipporah said the Lord told her the reason why this preacher is in hell, saying that he relied on works of the Law to save, rather than on Jesus' work on the cross.  The Lord said, “My child, cursed is he that obeys the law, as they insist on pleasing Me through works, and deny what I did for them on the cross.”

Dear friend, no man can be saved by obeying the Law.  Your works cannot save you, but true saving faith is demonstrated by works, as I have taught in Faith Works! Nobody enters heaven except by grace through faith in Jesus Christ's finished work on the cross.  Even the holiest and most righteous saints on earth must repent daily and cry out for mercy, because we sin so much.  So please do not rely on your good works to save you, whether that be your perfect Saturday Sabbath observance, your avoidance of certain foods that under the Law were considered unclean, or anything else in the Law. 

"For what the Law could not do, weak as it was through the flesh, God did: sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin, He condemned sin in the flesh, so that the requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us, who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit." (Rom 8:3-4)

"However, the Law is not of faith; on the contrary, 'He who practices them shall live by them.' Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us--for it is written, 'Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree'-- in order that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we would receive the promise of the Spirit through faith." (Gal 3:12-14)

Hell is real.  I urge you to heed this warning.  Please repent of any sin in your life and call upon the name of Jesus for forgiveness.  Live your life solely for Jesus, because the time is short and He is coming soon.  Please also warn others, so they too can repent and be saved.

Do You Want to Know Him?
If you want to know Jesus personally, you can. It all begins when you repent and believe in Jesus.  Do you know what God's Word, the Bible says?

“Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of God, and saying, ‘The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.’” (Mar 1:14b-15).  He preached that we must repent and believe.

Messages from the Lord for Catholics Worshiping Idols

Today I would like to post a collection of messages that people have received from the Lord Jesus Christ for Catholics worshipping idols.  These people also received messages for others, not just Catholics worshipping idols.  But I would like to highlight this particular topic, so that you can see the strong warnings that Lord has been giving them.



Crushed and Cast From His Sight
In Visitation of Jesus to Samuel Oghenetega, I documented that the Lord gave brother Samuel a message for Catholics worshipping idols.  He said, "Tell those worshipping idols, especially the Roman Catholics, that they should stop doing that or I will crush them and cast them from my sight into the lake of fire where there shall be gnashing of teeth and their smoke shall rise forever."

Idolatry Will Not Save Anyone
In Angelica Zambrano Hell and Heaven, I documented that sister Angelica saw many famous people in hell, including a past pope, John Paul II. She said the Lord showed her this man's life on earth and the reasons he is in hell today (I have covered some of these in a previous post already).

Here is an excerpt of her testimony, Prepare to meet your God! The Kingdoms of Heaven & Hell, and the Return of CHRIST (aka. 23 Horas Muertra):

Then the Lord took me to place where there was a very well-known man.  Before now, I used to live as a double minded young Christian girl.  I used to think that any person that died would go to Heaven; that those who celebrated mass, would also go to heaven, but I was wrong.  When Pope John Paul II died, my friends and relatives would tell me that he had gone to heaven.  All the news on TV, on Extra and many other places would say, "Pope John Paul II has died, may he rest in peace.  He is now rejoicing with the Lord and his angels in heaven" and I believed all of it.  But I was only fooling myself, because I saw him in Hell, being tormented by flames.  I looked at his face, it was John Paul II!  The Lord said to me, "Look, Daughter, that man that you see there, is Pope John Paul II.  He is here in this place; he is being tormented because he did not repent."

But I asked, "Lord, why is he here? He used to preach at church." Jesus replied, "Daughter, no fornicator, no idolater, no one who is greedy and no liar will inherit My Kingdom." (Eph 5:5) I replied, "Yes, I know that is true, but I want to know why he is here, because he used to preach to multitudes of people!" And Jesus responded, "Yes, Daughter, he may have said many things, but he would never speak the truth as it is.  He never said the truth and they know the truth and although he knew the truth, he preferred money over preaching about salvation.  He would not offer reality; would not say that hell is real and that heaven also exists; Daughter, now he is here in this place."

When I looked at this man, he had a large serpent with needles, wrapped around his throat, and he would try to take it off.  I pleaded with Jesus, "Lord, help him!"  The man would scream, "Help me, Lord; have mercy on me; take me out of this place; forgive me!  I repent, Lord; I want to return to Earth, I want to go back to Earth to repent." The Lord observed him and said to him, "You very well knew.  You knew very well that this place was real...It's too late; there is no other opportunity for you."

The Lord said, "Look, Daughter, I am going to show you the life of this man."  Jesus showed me a huge screen on which I could observe how this man offered mass many times to the multitudes.  And how the people who were there were so idolatrous.  Jesus said, "Look, Daughter, there are many idolaters in this place.  Idolatry will not save, Daughter.  I am the only One who saves, and outside of Me, no one saves.  I love the sinner, but I hate sin, Daughter.  Go and tell humanity that I love them and that they need to come to Me."

As the Lord was speaking, I began to see how this man received multitudes of coins and bills; money, all of which he would keep.  He had so much money.  I saw images of this man seated on a throne, but I was also able to see beyond that.  While it's true that these people do not get married, I can assure you, I'm not making this up, the Lord showed it to me, those people do sleep with nuns; with many women there!

The Lord showed me these people living in fornication, and the Word says that no fornicator will inherit His Kingdom.  As I was watching all of this, the Lord told me, "Look Daughter, all of this which I am showing you is what goes on, what he lived and what keeps on happening among many people, among many priests and popes existing." Then he told me, "Daughter, go and tell humanity that it's time to turn to Me."

Mary Worship in Photos
Here are some photos from around the web that depict this sin. Some images may be copyright protected.  No copyright infringement intended.



Other Forms of Idolatry
The worship of Mary is not the only form of idolatry found in the Catholic Church.  There are many other types of idolatry practiced as well.  For example, Catholics greet the Pope and Bishop by kneeling or bowing and kissing the ring.  When they bow down to kiss this gold ring, they break the Second Commandment. There are also many statues and images of the Pope that Catholics pray to.  They bow before many relics, including human skulls and pieces of human flesh.  For example, they bow and kiss ornate boxes containing human hearts, human tongues, and other objects supposed to have come from saints. In Hungary they have the right hand of saint Stephen in a box.  Pope Benedict XVI was photographed kissing a container with tapped blood of the dying late pope John Paul II.

There is an overwhelming amount of evidence of this kind of idolatry in the Catholic Church around the world, and I strongly urge you to visit the Ivarjed website that has a photo journal of these horrible acts of paganism, so you can see for yourself what they do.  They even have a photo of the pope kissing the Muslim Koran.  

Another example is their worship of the eucharist, which is the man-made communion element used in taking the Lord's Supper.  The Catechism says, "The Catholic Church has always offered and still offers to the sacrament of the Eucharist the cult of adoration, not only during Mass, but also outside of it, reserving the consecrated hosts with the utmost care, exposing them to the solemn veneration of the faithful, and carrying them in procession."

They enclose the bread in an ornate container made of gold and expose it on an altar or carry it in a procession (parade) for people to adore.  They call it the Blessed Sacrament and even pray to it.  In fact, they even have Perpetual Adoration 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.  Where in Scripture does it say to do this?  Praying to an object encased in gold violates Scripture.  Those who worship God must worship in Spirit and in Truth.

My Personal Deliverance from Idolatry
I recall when I first gave my life to Jesus Christ as a young soldier in the US Army in 1986.  Having been raised Roman Catholic, I repented of my sin and called upon the Lord to save me.  He came to live in my heart and set me free from many forms of bondage, including drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, sexual immorality, and even idolatry.  Nobody had to tell me these things were wrong, because the Holy Spirit living inside me convicted me.

I remember when I sat alone in my room in the barracks, and held my plastic statues in my hand, as I prepared to throw them in the trash.  I contemplate what I was about to do.  I knew I was either about to commit the greatest act of sacrilege, and a bolt of lightning was about to strike me if I followed through with it, or else I was about to break away from a lifetime of horrible bondage to idolatry.  I threw them away, and no lightning bolt hit, but I was definitely set free from idolatry and never went back.  The Lord has been faithful to reveal Himself to me over the past twenty-eight years through His Word and by His Spirit.  I have received many wonderful answers to pray, and never once had to commit idolatry to do so.

Scripture Meditations
"You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me," (Exo 20:4-5)

"Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs." (Jonah 2:8, NIV 1984)

"But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is an immoral person, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or a swindler--not even to eat with such a one." (1Co 5:11)

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God." (1Co 6:9-10)

"Do not be idolaters, as some of them were; as it is written, "'The people sat down to eat and drink, and stood up to play.'" (1Co 10:7)

"You know that when you were pagans, you were led astray to the mute idols, however you were led." (1Co 12:2)

"Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; just as God said, 'I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.'" (2Co 6:16)

"Little children, guard yourselves from idols." (1Jn 5:21)

"The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, so as not to worship demons, and the idols of gold and of silver and of brass and of stone and of wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk;" (Rev 9:20)

"But for the cowardly and unbelieving and abominable and murderers and immoral persons and sorcerers and idolaters and all liars, their part will be in the lake that burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death." (Rev 21:8)

"Outside are the dogs and the sorcerers and the immoral persons and the murderers and the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices lying." (Rev 22:15)

Putting it All Together
Dear friend, this warning is for those worshiping idols of any kind in any way, especially Catholics, but not only for them.  If you are worshiping idols in any way, please do not dismiss these very serious warnings.  Don't think these are simply words spoken by people whom you think hate Catholics, or that the messages are too harsh and could not be coming from Jesus.  Nobody here hates you.  The Lord loves you, and that is why He is warning you.  Do not resent His rebuke.

These are woes spoken over you by the Lord, just as he spoke over the hypocrites in Matthew 23.  To those people, he also said things like, "...you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in." (Mat 23:13b). He said, "...you will receive greater condemnation." (Mat 23:14).  He said to them, "You serpents, you brood of vipers, how will you escape the sentence of hell?" (Mat 23:33).

Do those sound like gentle words to you?  No, they are a rebuke spoken from the Lord's heart that is full of love for these people.  Just look at how the Lord spoke of Jerusalem in this very same passage of Matthew 23: "Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling." (Mat 23:37)

Can you hear the Lord's aching heart crying out to you to repent, as He rebukes you for your idolatry and lawlessness?  He longs to gather your children together the way a hen gathers her young, but you must be willing to let Him do so.  Please do not kill the prophets or stone those sent to you in the Name of the Lord, as the religious leaders of Jerusalem did. 

In Luke's account of another such incident when Jesus prophesied over Jerusalem, he recorded that the Lord wept over the city : "As he approached Jerusalem and saw the city, he wept over it and said, ‘If you, even you, had only known on this day what would bring you peace-but now it is hidden from your eyes. The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God's coming to you.’" Luke 19:41-44 

I pray this message will not be hidden from your eyes.  Receive this warning, understand what will bring you peace, repent, and turn to the Lord.  Amend your ways before it is too late.  Produce fruit in keeping with repentance by burning your idols, destroying them, or throwing them away if you cannot destroy them.

Renounce your acts of idolatry and ask the Lord to break off of you every curse you have brought upon yourself through this terrible sin.  There is still hope for you yet, as long as you have breath, because God is merciful.  I am living proof of this, because He set me free, forgave me, and changed my life!
