Birds of a Feather
When confronted on the evils of his partner, Martin Zender, Dan Sheridan is proven to be his true companion, of like mind and spirit, by mocking the Scriptures and the words of the Lord Jesus Christ, Whom he pretends to serve. How amazing is the contradiction of religious sinners who have form of godliness, but deny the power thereof! Let all be warned: “Whoever walks with wise people will be wise, but whoever associates with fools will suffer” (Proverbs 13:20 GW).
Paul sent Dan Sheridan (sheridanvoice.com), a preacher associated with Martin Zender, his correspondence with Martin Zender:
I have been on the road and this is the first time I have checked this account. Your e-mail looks very long. I will look at it and get back to you.
Dan, if you have not red any of our correspondence on Martin’s site, then the best place to start here is at the bottom of the email and work your way up. You will need to read carefully, including all the links. Obviously Martin had not done this, but careful and comprehensive reading would still not be enough for him. The problem is much deeper than that. He has a personal agenda other than the Truth. You will not agree, but the facts are there, and you will not be able to refute them.
Your reply will tell us about your agenda.
Thanks for your e-mail. Before I take the time and read through this massive e-mail, I have to ask you something. 1. Who are you? 2. Why am I included on your e-mail?
Also you said: “He has a personal agenda other than the Truth. You will not agree, but the facts are there, and you will not be able to refute them. Your reply will tell us about your agenda.”
Do you know Martin personally? How do you know that I will not agree with “the facts?” Do you really want me to look at the material? You have already decided about me it looks like. So why should I take hours of time to read all this?
I work a full time job, have a family, teach 4 Bible studies a week, prepare audio teachings for the internet, and travel. If you think I have an agenda, what is it? Tell me Paul, what is my agenda? Tell me why I should read through all this if you already think that I will not agree with facts?
In conclusion: You have taken time to send me an e-mail that is longer than the book of Isaiah, you expect me to read it, and yet you have already judged me when you have no clue who I am.
So: Why should I read through all this? Why should I take hours out of my schedule to research all this?
You were included in my initial email because you are an associate, a “co-worker” with Martin Zender, which is reason enough that you should hear these serious charges against him and his “ministry.” The Lord God warns people not to partake with those who do evil, and now He is giving you the opportunity to hear and know more specifically the evil with which you are confederate, and from which you must repent. You should be grateful, not indignant, but, as I said, your reply tells us about your agenda. I do not judge you; your own words do that.
The reason you need to read through the letter and writings is precisely because you are not in agreement with facts, especially as related to the Truth, the Lord Jesus Christ. I have not sent you the letter, or given you instructions on what to do about it, as though I am asking you to do these things for my sake. It is for your sake that you hear the Truth and repent. If you deem other things more worthy of your time, so be it. I leave you to your chosen path.
However, do know that the Lord will hold you accountable for what we have written, whether you read it or not. Your day of judgment is here.
As for your activities, you remind me of the Pharisee who fasted twice a week and tithed on all things. The Lord said of him, “Every one that exalts himself shall be abased.”
It is your time to be abased, Dan. We know much more about you than you know about yourself. That is because we are in the One Who knows all things, and He does not know you, or Martin, or anyone else by your estimation of the flesh (1 Corinthians 2:11-16).
Dear Alpha and Omega:
I was not aware that I was addressing the Angel of the Lord when I first wrote. I had no idea I was in the presence of the one “who knoweth the hearts of all men.” Forgive me for not giving you the proper worship and reverence.
I was not aware that I was going to be held accountable for what YOU have written. Forgive me for confusing the Holy Scriptures with your Holy E-mail. You said you know more about me than I know about myself. Tonight I will lift my hands on high, and call upon your name, Paul. I know that you will hear my voice. Paul, Thou hast searched me, and known me. Thou Paul, Holy All-Knowing Saviour, lead me into the way of everlasting.
Holy Holy Holy
Lord Paul Almighty
Early in the Morning
Thy e-mails will speak to me
Only Paul is holy
Perfect and Mighty
God in THY Person
Paul the Divinity
“Having first of all the knowledge that in the last days there will be men who, ruled by their evil desires, will make sport of holy things, Saying, Where is the hope of His coming? From the death of the fathers till now everything has gone on as it was from the making of the world” (2 Peter 3:3-4 BBE).
No doubt you do not believe or know that Christ is present in His saints, as you openly confess by your mocking. The apostle John tells us that in this you are antiChrist, and that there are many such as you in the world already. The apostle Paul tells us your end is destruction, because your god is your belly, as you glory in your shame and mind earthly things.
Satan, you cannot separate any saint from the body of Christ. We have one and the same testimony of Jesus. There will be no “divide and conquer” for us, but there is for you. The Lord says so. Your time is up.
Dear Alpha etc…
First of all what is the BBE? No Greek text in the world reads that way. The text reads: “Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.”
But it is obvious that you have no clue about the context, which is, the second coming. Do you believe in the second coming? Or are you one of those who do not understand what it means to rightly divide the word of truth? My guess is, your both. The BBE must be the Boneheads Blunderers Edition.
Second: Anti-Christ is one who denies that:
1. Jesus is the Christ 1 Jn 2:22
2. Denies the Father 1 Jn 2:22-23
3. Denies that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh 1 Jn 4:4
4. Denies that he is coming in the flesh 2 Jn 7
There was no mocking God in my statements, I was following Proverbs 26:5: ”Answer a fool according to his folly, lest he be wise in his own conceit.”
Your third mis-use of the word of God is how you use Philippians 3:17-21. Paul is talking about those who were the “evil workers” who boasted in being law-keepers and boasted in physical descent as a Jew. They, in other words, bragged about their physical nationality, and their works of law and not in the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. In other words, their god was their works and self confidence. Speaking of which, are you a believer? Have you every believed in the Lord Jesus Christ for your justification?
Fourth: You called me Satan. Well, Peter was called that once. I am in good company.
Finally: My time is not up yet. The Lord Himself has not snatched me away yet according to 1 Thess. 4. Until then, I am going to rejoice in Christ Jesus, proclaim the gospel of the grace of God, and enjoy the people God has put into my life.
You say my time is up. That tells me you do not understand grace. Did you know that God was in Christ reconciling the world unto himself not imputing their trespasses to them? God is conciliated through the cross of Christ! Friend, it is not too late. Your time is not up. Paul, you can still receive the gift of God right now. Do you know Him?
I hope this e-mail gives you the Bible education you have been missing.
There is no substantive difference between the BBE (Bible in Basic English) translation and the version you quoted, Dan. You criticize the circumcisers of Paul’s day, but you are no different. You have circumcised yourself by the letter, not the Spirit. Now you try to apply the letter here, without the Spirit. You are a minister of the letter, killing rather than bringing life.
Your reaction is that of a hidebound legalist, the kind you say Paul wrote about, as if you agree with him and are not one yourself. That makes you a hypocrite on top of your other sins.
You not only deny that we are in Christ, but you speak incredulously of anyone being in Christ. You openly mock the Word of God that Paul gave to the Corinthians and to us. You deny that Christ comes in the flesh. That is denying the Father and His second coming. Jesus said:
“Most assuredly I say to you, he who receives whomever I send receives Me; and he who receives Me receives Him Who sent Me” (John 13:20 EMTV).
You deny Him on every front and are now exposed for the fraud that you are.
You say I am a fool because you do not understand what I wrote and do not like it. What does that make you? Jesus said this of anyone who spoke as you do to a brother:
“Whoever shall say, ‘You fool!’ shall be in danger of the fire of Gehinnom” (Matthew 5:22 HNV).
I am applying the Scriptures correctly and you have not shown otherwise; you are indeed an evil worker, one who is boastful and self-confident in his own works.
Your argument about being in good company because I spoke of Satan in my letter is off the mark on several counts. Firstly, I was speaking to Satan, not you. You are just his mindless tool. Secondly, his shroud of darkness over men’s minds and hearts is now being exposed and lifted for those who believe. You may continue to serve him, but his power is finished. Thirdly, Peter believed the Lord. He did not boast of being in good company when the Lord rebuked him. You do not believe at all. That is the definition of a fool.
How can you even begin to answer my letter to Martin, seeing you cannot get off square one here? You disregarded my warning to read things over thoroughly before answering, and now are stripped naked before all to your shame:
“To give an answer before hearing is a foolish thing and a cause of shame” (Proverbs 18:13 BBE).
As Job Said: “Surely you are the people, and wisdom will die with you!” As it is also written in Job, “they found no answer, and yet had condemned Job.”
Like I said Alpha Paul, you must be God. Any “spirit” that talks about the Bible being the “letter” is not the Holy Spirit but another spirit. You actually say that I deny that “Christ comes in the flesh.” You are funny Paul/Alpha/Omega/First/Last/Beginning/Ending/Almighty etc… I always knew God had a sense of humor.
Your “spirit” must be senile. Just compare the BBE with an actual translation. Oh, I forgot, it is the “spirit” (the spirit of Paul of course silly) that is the sole interpreter. So it must all mean whatever your spirit tells you.
Do me a favor. Look in the want ads. You should probably get a job. Do not e-mail me again, it will be blocked. You are wasting precious space on my computer. If you want to talk Bible, and not foolishness, you can call me. I put my number on my website. I would be happy to take time to talk with you, privately.
Since you are the one who initiated this silly e-mail, why don’t you take the time and get to know what I teach. You obviously have no clue since your accusations have no basis in reality. Oh wait, I forgot, you say that you are the Christ. So you are right, I do deny “christ.” Note the little c. which, means, another Christ. (You probably have no idea what I am talking about, your “spirit” probably strips its gears when confronted with Bible). The serpent said to Paul: “Thou shalt be as gods, knowing good and evil.” Paul bought it.
What a friend we have in Paul
All our sins and griefs to bear
What a priviledge to carry
Everything to Paul in prayer
Oh what peace we often forfeit
Oh what needsless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to Paul in Prayer
PS: Thanks for the comic relief Alpha Paul.
Paul’s and Victor’s replies, sent only to Martin Zender and his publisher (who both received the previous correspondence):
Dan says the “letter” written about in the Bible does not refer to the Scriptures. He says that notion comes from “another spirit.” But here is what the Bible actually says:
“[God] also has made us able ministers of the new covenant; not of the letter, but of the spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit makes alive. But if the ministry of death, having been engraved in letters in stone was with glory (so that the sons of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses because of the glory of his face), which was being done away; shall not the ministry of the Spirit be with more glory?” (2 Corinthians 3:6-8 MKJV).
Hereby Dan confesses that the Spirit of the Lord is “another” to him, Whom he rejects as totally foreign and alien. His sin is to mock and blaspheme the One he does not know or understand.
Another witness from Paul, confirming that it is not enough to know the letter of the Law or prophets:
“And now we have ceased from the Law, that being dead in which we were held, so that we may serve in newness of Spirit, and not in oldness of letter” (Romans 7:6 YLT).
Dan says if I want to “talk Bible” I can call him. What is the point of discussing the Bible with one who clearly despises and ridicules its contents, and has no use whatsoever for its Author?
Dan Sheridan and Martin Zender are of one spirit, full of sarcasm, cynicism, and exhibitionism – proud, loud-mouthed liars who serve themselves and despise the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose Name they use for their aggrandizement. They have done their damage with the simple, weak and wicked. We now come, by the appointment of the Lord Jesus Christ, to slaughter these brute beasts with the Sword of Truth, wielded not by ourselves but by Almighty God, Who sends us to shed the blood of blasphemers who go about deceiving, even as Enoch prophesied.
Do they not bark as the dogs they are and squeal as the swine they are? Your days are finished, Martin and Dan, as Paul has said. We will now see the nature, quality and efficacy of your presumed grace. Your barking and squealing will not save you, and your vomit will not deflect His judgment, as you have quashed the criticisms not only of fools but also of the weak and unlearned with your vile mouths. Publicly you have contemned the Lord and publicly you will reap and bear the fruits of your ways and well-deserved shame.
