Seeing God and Living

“And He said, ‘You are not able to see My face; for no man can see Me and live’” (Exodus 33:20 LITV).

“Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord?” (1 Corinthians 9:1 MKJV)

We have exposed Ryan Case as a pretentious fraud, a false teacher, defined primarily as one who presumes to represent God, the Truth, or Jesus Christ, but who has no truth in him and therefore no authority, ability, or calling from God to preach and teach for righteousness’ sake.

But it seems there is more to be done with Ryan and his sympathizer, Rodrigo Zabala, who has sent us notice three times now that I, Victor Hafichuk, have the honor of being labeled a false teacher at their site: http://www.sermonaudio.com/gallery_details.asp?image=gr-1129092301-1.jpg

They lump me in with charlatans, devils, and alleged witnesses of apparitions. And what is Ryan and Rodrigo’s supposed Scriptural evidence that I am a false prophet? Here is what they declare publicly against me:

This is another ‘revelation from God’ wherein in I Corinthians 13 said ‘it will stop’…this is another Joseph Smith Incident, even like the apparition of Mary in Fatima & Garabandal.

Is it Biblical.????

Read his Testimony.

Then they quote a portion of my testimony: “That year of 1972, I decided to fast for three days and three nights, without food or water. It was around that time that I had a dream of the Lord Jesus Christ, something I knew by the term, ‘Second Coming.’ I saw His Face. It was a face like no other…perfect in beauty, love, power, wisdom, knowledge, and peace. His Face was plainly, distinctly Jewish, yet it was universal. A man walked with Him on His left, and that man’s face too was distinctly Jewish, though not universal. He was full of reverence, thankfulness and joy, all because of the One with Whom he walked, and Whom he worshiped. Both the Lord Jesus and the man with Him had neat beards, short hair, and royal or priestly apparel.

As I witnessed these two persons, I was condemned, not by the Lord or that man with Him, but by my own corruption and religious doctrine. As a Catholic, I was taught that if I died with a mortal sin on my soul, I would go to Hell and burn with horrible pain forever and ever, or if the Lord came and I was in mortal sin, I would suffer the same consequence. The Lord was acknowledging very few people as He came by the whole world, which stood very still, watching and wondering. He did not acknowledge me, and I knew He could not. I feared I was rejected and damned for all eternity. When I woke up, my clothing was wet with perspiration.

Greatly troubled, and not knowing what to do, a week or two later I had a second dream from God, in which I was informed that I needed spiritual food. I set out to try to change my life, to rid myself of my sins, to make myself pleasing and acceptable to the Lord. I soon began to realize the impossibility of such an undertaking on my part. I despaired and nearly quit trying altogether, when I had a third dream which was an encouragement to go on. Symbolically, the dream told me I was almost ‘there.’

Back to me: “Is it Biblical.????” they ask. We shall see. It is an amazing thing to me how these people can accuse me of being false simply because Jesus Christ chose to appear to me in a dream wherein I saw His Face.

The notion that one cannot see Jesus Christ in a dream or vision today is a common Reformed Church doctrine, based on this Scripture, which they have erroneously interpreted:

“And He said, ‘You are not able to see My Face; for no man can see Me and live’” (Exodus 33:20 LITV).

They might also add this Scripture to support their notion:

“For He in His own time will reveal Who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, Who alone has immortality, dwelling in light which cannot be approached, Whom no one of men have seen, nor can see; to Whom be honor and power everlasting. Amen” (1 Timothy 6:15-16 MKJV).

Indeed, it is true that Joseph Smith, founder of the Mormon religion, did not see the Lord; neither did the others they list in their selection of false teachers. (In fact, those are Catholics who claim to have seen apparitions of Mary, a totally ungodly phenomenon.) Should I be condemned with those deceiving and deceived because I claim to have seen the Lord?

Has no saint or prophet seen the Lord?

What do the naysayers have to say of men of God recorded in Scripture who plainly declare to have seen the Lord? Reform congregations presume to believe and honor Abraham, Jacob, Moses, Isaiah, Stephen, Paul, and John as true men of God, and presume to be in the good company of the more than 500 saints to whom Jesus appeared immediately after His resurrection, yet they count me a false prophet because I testify to having seen the Lord?

In essence, is my claim so different from other saints, except that while I have only seen Him in visions and a dream, some of them have seen Him directly? What do the Scriptures have to say about their seeing God? Let’s see:

1) Abraham

Genesis 18:1-33 MKJV
(1) And the LORD appeared to him in the plains of Mamre, and he sat at the tent door in the heat of the day.
(2) And he lifted up his eyes and looked, and lo, three men stood by him. And when he saw them, he ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed toward the ground.
(3) And he said, My Lord, if now I have found favor in Your sight, do not pass away, I pray, from Your servant.
(4) Let a little water, I pray, be brought, and wash Your feet, and rest under the tree.
(5) And I will bring a bite of bread, and will comfort your hearts. After that You shall pass on. For this is why You have come to Your servant. And they said, Do so, as you have said.
(6) And Abraham hastened into the tent to Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal; knead it, and make cakes.
(7) And Abraham ran out to the herd and brought a calf, tender and good. And he gave it to a young man. And he hurried to dress it.
(8) And he took butter and milk, and the calf which he had dressed, and set it before them. And he stood by them under the tree, and they ate.
(9) And they said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.
(10) And He said, I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and lo, Sarah your wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard in the tent door which was behind Him.
(11) Now Abraham and Sarah were old, far gone in days, and it had ceased to be with Sarah after the manner of women.
(12) Therefore Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After my being old, shall I have pleasure, my lord being old also?
(13) And the LORD said to Abraham, Why did Sarah laugh, saying, Shall I, who am old, truly bear a child?
(14) Is anything too hard for the LORD? At the time appointed I will return again, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son.
(15) Then Sarah denied, saying, I did not laugh; for she was afraid. And He said, No, but you did laugh.
(16) And the men rose up from there, and looked toward Sodom. And Abraham was going with them to bring them on the way.
(17) And the LORD said, Shall I hide from Abraham the thing which I do,
(18) And Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the persons of the earth shall be blessed in him?
(19) For I know him, that he will command his sons and his house after him, and they shall keep the way of the LORD, to do justice and judgment, that the LORD may bring upon Abraham that which He has spoken of him.
(20) And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous,
(21) I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which has come to Me. And if not, I will know.
(22) And the men turned their faces away from there, and went toward Sodom. But Abraham still stood before the LORD.
(23) And Abraham drew near and said, Will You also destroy the righteous with the wicked?
(24) Perhaps there are fifty righteous within the city. Will You also destroy and not spare the place for the fifty righteous that are in it?
(25) Far be it from You to act in this manner, to kill the righteous with the wicked. And far be it from You, that the righteous should be as the wicked. Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?
(26) And the LORD said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.
(27) And Abraham answered and said, Behold now, I have taken upon me to speak to the LORD, who am but dust and ashes.
(28) Perhaps there will be five lacking from the fifty righteous. Will You destroy all the city for lack of five? And He said, If I find there forty-five, I will not destroy it.
(29) And he spoke to Him yet again, and said, Perhaps there shall be forty found there. And He said, I will not do it for forty’s sake.
(30) And he said, Oh let not the LORD be angry, and I will speak. Perhaps there shall be thirty found there. And He said, I will not do it if I find thirty there.
(31) And he said, Lo now, I have taken upon me to speak to the LORD. Perhaps there shall be twenty found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for twenty’s sake.
(32) And he said, Oh do not let the LORD be angry, and I will speak only once more. Perhaps ten shall be found there. And He said, I will not destroy it for ten’s sake.
(33) And the LORD went His way as soon as He had left off talking with Abraham. And Abraham returned to his place.

2) Jacob

Genesis 32:24-30 MKJV
(24) And Jacob was left alone. And a Man wrestled there with him until the breaking of the day.
(25) And when He saw that He did not prevail against him, He touched the hollow of his thigh. And the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint as he wrestled with Him.
(26) And He said, Let Me go, for the day breaks. And he said, I will not let You go except You bless me.
(27) And He said to him, What is your name? And he said, Jacob.
(28) And He said, Your name shall no longer be called Jacob, but Israel; for like a prince you have power with God and with men, and have prevailed.
(29) And Jacob asked and said, I pray You, reveal Your name. And He said, Why do you ask after My name? And He blessed him there.
(30) And Jacob called the name of the place Face of God; for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved.

Not destroyed – preserved!

3) Moses (the very one who heard the words so greatly misunderstood by so many)

“And the LORD would speak to Moses face to face, as a man speaks to his friend. And he turned again to the camp” (Exodus 33:11 MKJV).

There are those who would argue that “face to face” is but a figure of speech, and that it is written that God also appeared the same way to the children of Israel, even as Moses said to them:

“The LORD talked with you face to face in the mountain out of the midst of the fire” (Deuteronomy 5:4 MKJV).

We have a testimony, however, in which the LORD appeared to Moses “face to face” in a special way that He did not appear to the Israelites or even other prophets:

“And never since has a prophet like Moses arisen in Israel, whom the LORD knew face to face” (Deuteronomy 34:10 MKJV).

No doubt the testimony of Moses will not suffice for those who do not believe. There is more.

4) Isaiah

Isaiah 6:1-5 KJV
(1) In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple.
(2) Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he did fly.
(3) And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of His glory.
(4) And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
(5) Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for my eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.

5) The apostle Paul

Acts 22:17-21 MKJV
(17) And it happened to me, I returning to Jerusalem and praying in the temple, I became in an ecstasy.
(18) And I saw Him say to me, Hurry and go quickly out of Jerusalem, for they will not receive your testimony concerning Me.
(19) And I said, Lord, they know that I was imprisoning and beating those who believed on You throughout the synagogues.
(20) And when the blood of Your martyr Stephen was poured out, I also was standing by and consenting to his death, and holding the garments of those who killed him.
(21) And He said to me, Go, for I will send you far away to the nations.

6) The apostle Paul, the rest of the apostles, and more than 500 saints

1 Corinthians 15:3-8 MKJV
(3) For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received, that Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures,
(4) and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures;
(5) and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the Twelve.
(6) Afterward He was seen by over five hundred brothers at once, of whom the greater part remain until this present day, but also some fell asleep.
(7) Afterward He was seen by James, then by all the apostles.
(8) And last of all He was seen by me also, as one born out of time.

If hundreds of saints saw the resurrected Jesus Christ face to face, is it any great thing that I saw His Face by dream? How foolish and ignorant are those of the Word of God, who presume to know and preach It!

Was the Lord to be seen only during the 40 days before His ascension?

They may argue that it was only during the 40 days before Jesus ascended into Heaven that believers could see Him, yet Paul the apostle does not fit into that time period, does he?

“Am I not an apostle? Am I not free? Have I not seen Jesus Christ our Lord? Are you not my work in the Lord?” (1 Corinthians 9:1 MKJV)

Did only the apostles see the Lord?

But carnal men will argue against the Truth they have not received and do not understand. They are at enmity with God while at the same time presuming to represent Him. They might argue that only the apostles had the privilege of seeing Him after His ascension. They would be wrong:

7) Stephen

“And he said, Behold, I see Heaven opened and the Son of Man standing on the right hand of God” (Acts 7:56 MKJV).

Stephen was not an apostle. And he did not see Jesus Christ during the 40 days after His resurrection.

8) John

And what about John, who saw Him decades later? His record:

Revelation 1:9-18 MKJV
(9) I, John, who also am your brother and companion in the affliction, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the island that is called Patmos, for the Word of God and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.
(10) I came to be in the Spirit in the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
(11) saying, I am the Alpha and Omega, the First and the Last. Also, What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamos, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.
(12) And I turned to see the voice that spoke with me.
(13) And having turned, I saw seven golden lampstands. And in the midst of the seven lampstands I saw One like the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the feet, and tied around the breast with a golden band.
(14) His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow. And His eyes were like a flame of fire.
(15) And His feet were like burnished brass having been fired in a furnace. And His voice was like the sound of many waters.
(16) And He had seven stars in His right hand, and out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword. And His face was like the sun shining in its strength.
(17) And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying to me, Do not fear, I am the First and the Last,
(18) and the Living One, and I became dead, and behold, I am alive for ever and ever, Amen. And I have the keys of hell and of death.

Devils and spiritual rebels assuming the Name of Jesus Christ will argue that it was only one like the Son of man, and not THE Son of man; however, the context bears out Whom John did see. Only Jesus Christ is the First and the Last. Only He became dead and is alive for ever and ever. Only He has the keys of hell and death.

And He identified Himself to John. Would Ryan and Rodrigo suggest a devil impersonated the Lord and deceived John? After all, if Moses’ words are to be interpreted their way, they would apply at any and all times, including those recorded in the Bible. Is that not so? Or do the Reformers think they can have it both ways?

The Scriptures say that eventually everyone will see Him by the grace of God, and will repent:

“Behold, He comes with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, and those who pierced Him will see Him, and all the kindreds of the earth will wail because of Him. Even so, Amen” (Revelation 1:7 MKJV).

“And I will pour on the house of David, and on the people of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of prayers. And they shall look on Me Whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be bitter over Him, as the bitterness over the first-born” (Zechariah 12:10 MKJV)

Are the gifts of the Spirit no longer and His Voice no longer heard by His sons and daughters?

Reform congregations and many other evangelicals who have never known the Lord insist that when the Bible was finally completed, there was no more manifestation of God by the gifts of the Spirit, which include tongues, interpretation of tongues, prophecy (in the true definition of the word and not theirs), healings, miracles, dreams, and visions. They deny that anyone can now hear the voice of God speaking to them personally.

Here we have people who profess faith in God and in His Word; they declare that they only believe and preach what the Bible declares, and nothing more. Yet they cannot provide a shred of solid, reasonable evidence from Scripture to support their devilish doctrine that one can no longer hear God’s personal voice.

(For the emancipating enlightenment and reading pleasure of those who seek understanding and a living relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, Who alone has immortality and gives eternal life by His Spirit, see Diabolical Doctrine: Believers No Longer Hear God’s Voice.

So what did the Lord mean by what He said to Moses?

What of the Scriptures that one cannot see Him and live? We cannot deny there was the notion in Israel that if anyone saw God they would not live, even as Moses related to the children of Israel, as he heard from the Lord. There is more than one example of such fear expressed. Here is one of them:

Judges 13:1-25 MKJV
(1) And the sons of Israel did evil again in the sight of the LORD. And the LORD delivered them into the hands of the Philistines forty years.
(2) And there was a certain man of Zorah, of the family of the Danites, whose name was Manoah. And his wife was barren and did not bear.
(3) And the Angel of the LORD appeared to the woman and said to her, Behold now, you are barren and do not bear. But you shall conceive and bear a son.
(4) And now, please take heed, and do not drink wine nor strong drink, and do not eat any unclean thing.
(5) For lo, you shall conceive and bear a son. And no razor shall come upon his head. For the child shall be a Nazarite to God from the womb. And he shall begin to deliver Israel out of the hand of the Philistines.
(6) And the woman came and told her husband, saying, A man of God came to me, and His face was like the face of an Angel of God, very terrifying. But I did not ask Him where He came from, neither did He tell me His name.
(7) But He said to me, Behold, you shall conceive and bear a son. And now drink no wine nor strong drink, neither eat any unclean thing, for the boy shall be a Nazirite to God from the womb to the day of his death.
(8) And Manoah prayed to the LORD and said, O, my Lord, let the man of God, whom You sent, come again to us and teach us what we shall do to the boy that shall be born.
(9) And God listened to the voice of Manoah, and the Angel of God came again to the woman as she sat in the field. But Manoah her husband was not with her.
(10) And the woman hurried and ran, and told her husband, and said to him, Behold, the Man has appeared to me, the one who came to me the other day.
(11) And Manoah arose and went after his wife, and came to the Man, and said to Him, Are You the Man Who spoke to the woman? And He said, I am.
(12) And Manoah said, Now let Your words come to pass. How shall we order the child, and what shall we do to him?
(13) And the Angel of the LORD said to Manoah, Of all that I said to the woman let her be careful.
(14) She may not eat of all that comes from the vine, neither let her drink wine nor strong drink, nor eat any unclean thing. Let her do all that I commanded her.
(15) And Manoah said to the Angel of the LORD, I pray You, let us keep You until we have made a kid ready for You.
(16) And the Angel of the LORD said to Manoah, Though you keep Me, I will not eat of your bread. And if you will offer a burnt offering, you must offer it to the LORD. For Manoah did not know that He was the Angel of the LORD.
(17) And Manoah said to the Angel of the LORD, What is Your name, so that when Your sayings come to pass we may do You honor?
(18) And the Angel of the LORD said to him, Why do you ask after My name in this way? Yea, it is Wonderful.
(19) And Manoah took a kid with a food offering, and offered it upon a rock to the LORD, and did wonderfully. And Manoah and his wife looked on.
(20) For it happened when the flame went up toward heaven from off the altar, the Angel of the LORD went up in the flame of the altar. And Manoah and his wife looked on it and fell on their faces to the ground.
(21) But the Angel of the LORD did not appear any more to Manoah and to his wife. Then Manoah knew that He was an Angel of the LORD.
(22) And Manoah said to his wife, We shall surely die because we have seen God.
(23) But his wife said to him, If the LORD were pleased to kill us, He would not have received a burnt offering and a food offering at our hands, neither would He have showed us all these things, nor have told us such things as these at this time.
(24) And the woman bore a son and called his name Samson. And the child grew, and the LORD blessed him.
(25) And the Spirit of the LORD began to move him at times in the camp of Dan between Zorah and Eshtaol.

So God did indeed say what He said to Moses, and Moses and the Israelites heard right – no man can see God and live. So how is it that all those saints and prophets saw Him and lived to tell about it? To those who know the Lord, the answer is simple. It is in the interpretation of the Word God spoke to Moses, and this is where the Reform people and many other evangelicals err, being in their carnal understanding, which is at enmity with God.

Flesh and blood cannot inherit the Kingdom of God. The corrupt flesh of man cannot come into direct contact with the Spirit of God and survive intact. That is what God meant. Paul died on the road to Damascus, with life as he knew it finished forever. He continued in his new life of faith until he came to complete identification with his death, in the vibrancy of the life of Christ, speaking these words:

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ lives in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, Who loved me, and gave Himself for me” (Galatians 2:20 KJV).

Some of those we have mentioned saw Him by, and in, their inner man, by their spirits in Christ, indirectly, by vision and dream, by the power of the Holy Spirit, which is one way they saw Him and lived.

There is also a second way man can see God and live, and that is if He transforms Himself to our dimension of flesh and manifests Himself, just as He did when He appeared to Abraham and as He did in the Person of the Son, Jesus Christ. Hear what Jesus said:

“Jesus said to him, Have I been with you such a long time and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. And how do you say, Show us the Father?” (John 14:9 MKJV)

How amazing it is that while people profess to have God dwelling in them, yet they believe they cannot look at Him lest they die! Does that make any sense? Is that what God was saying?

But how is it that Manoah’s wife had more wisdom than her husband, so that she would not accept the usual erroneous interpretation of what God had spoken to Moses? She was graced with a simple, childlike understanding of, and faith in, God and His Word. Consider that the Messenger of the Lord appeared to her, not to Manoah.

And is it not peculiar that while we know her husband’s name and not hers, the angel of the Lord spoke to her and not to him? We do not know her name, though she is the one who believed, understood, and was not afraid as was Manoah. Apparently our identity in this world is not so important to God as is our present faith and identity in the next world. In that world, Manoah’s wife had a new name, which no one can know except the one who receives it.

It is all in the interpretation of the meaning of the words Moses heard. Either the reality is contrary to God’s Word, which makes Him a liar, or men, who are the liars, misunderstand His Word. Leaning on their own understanding, they make of God a liar, adding and taking away from His Word, bringing ruin upon themselves. So Ryan Case and his sympathizers do now.

But God’s words are true! So what DID He mean when He spoke them? If people have the wrong interpretation, then what is the right one?

No man can see God and live. I tell you, when I saw the Lord in 1972, I died that night; I was never the same again. No man or woman having seen God can ever walk away the same – never. It is a life-changing experience, with bridges burned and no turning back.

I declare I saw that which I did not purpose or arrange to see. I saw the Lord in a dream in 1972; I saw His glorious Face, as described. I have seen Him several times in visions since then, the last being in 1989. I testify only that which other brothers and sisters in Christ have seen and reported. For that, Reformers judge me to be deluded and a false prophet. Thus doing, they judge all the saints and prophets in the Scriptures with me, along with the Scriptures themselves, as well as Their Author.

Can those such as Ryan and Rodrigo not perceive that my seeing the Lord Jesus Christ drove me to repentance and faith in Him? Have they not red “the rest of the story”? In their sectarianism and indoctrination, are they so blind, hard, proud, and wicked that they should deny the Lord Jesus Christ in life while worshipping Him vainly with their lips?

Will not those who examine my entire testimony see the good fruits of deliverance from sin and Satan’s tyrannical grip?

Will Satan willingly set his captive free? Will Satan cast out Satan?

Will Satan deceive one into repentance from sin, and repentance toward, and faith in, Jesus Christ?

Will Satan deliver from vices and drive a man to his knees and to confession of Jesus Christ as Lord of lords and King of kings?

Will Satan cause one to forsake all, even his nearest and dearest, against his own will, so that he might begin to do that which is right and acceptable to God, according to the Scriptures?

Will Satan cause a man to stop cursing and using that wonderful Name of the Lord Jesus Christ in vain and begin to shout from the housetops that Jesus Christ is Lord?

What a fool one must be to contradict himself so – declaring himself to be a minister of Christ while denouncing one who has seen the Lord and has been turned to Him by His grace and power to live for Him! What a fool indeed!

The problem with the naysayers who declare it is not possible to see the Face of Jesus is that they have only heard of Him; they have only had head knowledge, and in this limitation, they presume to be justified before Him. But they have never known Him, which is true eternal life:

“And this is life eternal, that they might know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ Whom You have sent” (John 17:3 MKJV).

Not having known Him, which is eternal life, they do not have eternal life as they think to have it. They do not believe! By faith one must take up the cross, die, and be raised up in Christ to have eternal life.

Not having His life in them, these resisters blaspheme and oppose all that is godly and good. Therefore, they deny the possibility that man can and does experience Jesus Christ as did all the saints and prophets in the past and to this day.

Added to their sin is that they presume to preach only what the Scriptures declare, yet nowhere can they find any true Scriptural justification or substantiation for their doctrines of devils.

They cannot find any Scriptural testimony to defend their doctrine of not being able to see the Lord and live.

They cannot find a trace of Scriptural substance to defend their Sunday substitution for the Sabbath. (Read Diabolical Doctrine: Sunday Is the Sabbath.)

They cannot find any Scriptural evidence to defend the keeping of pagan holidays and festivities, honoring Baal (Tammuz) and Ishtar. (Read these Diabolical Doctrines: Christmas Is a Biblical Christian Celebration and The Keeping of Easter.)

They cannot find sound Scriptural doctrine and testimony to justify many of their devilish ways, but they stand in judgment, condemning the saints.

Woe to them!

“They’re a sorry bunch–pseudo-apostles, lying preachers, crooked workers–posing as Christ’s agents but sham to the core. And no wonder! Satan does it all the time, dressing up as a beautiful angel of light. So it shouldn’t surprise us when his servants masquerade as servants of God. But they’re not getting by with anything. They’ll pay for it in the end” (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 MSG).

And what more do our judges (Ryan, Rodrigo, and other Reformers) do? They proclaim the name of a murderer, a vicious butcher of saints, on record as confessing with his own mouth that he would kill, did kill, and was unrepentant of killing, our beloved brothers in Christ – Servetus, Castellion, and so many others. I speak of John Calvin, of course, that murderous, vicious, venomous, vindictive, and unrepentant viper.

His deceived followers are proud of him, posting his name in their literature, on their buildings, and naming their schools, churches, and organizations after him! The man is full of heinous doctrines that assassinate the Character and Person of God, and they praise him for it! Many Reformers live wretched lives because of his doctrines, whether they like it or not, know it or not, believe it or not.

And they call me a false prophet and teacher because the Lord has been pleased to reveal Himself to me, as to others? Through his seed, Calvin continues to persecute the saints, but this time, it is his time to burn, not ours. Read The Fruit of Cain Multiplied: The Murderer John Calvin.

And for those who are wretched and ready to receive truth that makes one free, read True Hope for Reform Church Members and All Calvin Doctrine Victims.

Ryan Case, Rodrigo, and others seek to stone me, and they do, with their lies and false accusations, posting me among others who are truly false prophets and teachers, even as Jesus was condemned with criminals. Only this time, God has determined a resurrected life in us impervious to stones.

With Stephen, who needed to die in his day, I say to Case and his company of sympathizers in this day:

“And you continue, so bullheaded! Calluses on your hearts, flaps on your ears! Deliberately ignoring the Holy Spirit, you’re just like your ancestors. Was there ever a prophet who didn’t get the same treatment? Your ancestors killed anyone who dared talk about the coming of the Just One. And you’ve kept up the family tradition–traitors and murderers, all of you. You had God’s Law handed to you by angels–gift-wrapped!–and you squandered it!” (Acts 7:51-53 MSG)

To Case and company, I declare there is a significant difference between what your murderous fathers did with Stephen, and what you do to us now. Stephen was killed; we will not be killed, but you will die in your sins.

Why? Because this is the Day of the Lord; it is His Day of vengeance, and He is finished winking at your light, proud, presumptuous, blasphemous ways.

So thankful to be of the company of saints of whom Enoch prophesied, contending for the faith once delivered to the saints, taking vengeance on the enemies of the Lord Jesus Christ,
