Subject: Just a Hello for now

I don’t have much time at the moment, but wanted to say hello and let you know that I have
been looking at the teachings and some of the exposing of false teachers, gospels etc, and am
so happy I have found this site.

God has been leading me into truth in quite a few areas over the last 6 months, and I now that I
have to stand firm for truth in my own life without compromise, buy His grace.  My life has
taken some tough turns in the past year, all leading me to this point with my Heavenly Father.
I have already received some persecution from family, wife, church for taking this stand but I
still refuse to compromise.  I just want to say it is encouraging to see others taking a hard start,
and even greater that you are sharing this with others.

I plan to continue reading and probably will have some future questions/correspondence if that
is alright!  Thank you, and may our Lord Jesus bless you.
Thank you,
Jared

Good to hear from you, Jared. When you believe the Lord Jesus Christ and begin to
walk in the light with Him, then it’s an absolute certainty you’ll be opposed by the
world, particularly the religious, whose power isn’t from Him, but is in themselves,
under the prince of this world. That’s the way it is.

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution” (2 Timothy
3:12 KJV).

Hi,

Thank you for writing back, I am finally getting around to replying and appreciate you taking the
time to read my previous email.  I reach out to you today, both troubled by the world around
me but also comforted that God is giving me the grace to continue on.  Today I will be divorced,
in a few hours I will meet with the judge and my former wife (I'll explain more below).

A little history on myself:

I was very fortunate to be born into a Christian home.  I would say, looking back, that my
parents made a great effort to separate our family from the world.  They took a strong stand for
many years and did not compromise.  I was homeschooled, and had a upbringing where
reverence towards God and His word was foremost.  The church we attended had a
fellowship of maybe 10 believers.  There was much truth that was taught there, although, now
looking back I can see some things that were doctrinally incorrect, some legalism, and
condemnation in several areas (such as you much tithe 10%, if you aren’t healed you don’t have
enough faith, everyone else is wrong and our group are the only ones in truth…)

I see now that being a young person who obeyed God’s commandments and feared Him, I had
a good heart but never learned how to have relationship with Him!  And I certainly did not seek
Him with all my heart.  With this, I tried to do things in my own strength, failed, and was so
discouraged in my teenage years.  I had no idea what it meant to abide in Him.  The family
began to have more and more issues, fell apart, parents were divorced, and the whole family
fell away (we denied Him by our deeds, our hearts were far from Him, we were NOT followers
of Christ for many years).

I proceeded fall into many temptations and traps that the enemy was pleased to set for me.  I
pursued pleasure, drinking, parties, self seeking, money, etc.  I met my wife and held her at bay
for years, not falling into sexual sin with her, but she pursued me very much, questioned my
sexuality, persecuted me, and eventually I gave in to the temptation and lust.  I was so, again,
disappointed with myself, and I felt that the right thing to do would be to marry her (a further
mistake in God’s eyes).  She was very rebellious, wanted nothing to do with seeking God and
living godly, fought me on everything that was good and right, and I allowed it just to avoid the
fighting.  It was not a marriage at all to be honest, it was a joining of two people, living in sin, a
man made institution (similar to today’s churches, thinking they are the bride of Christ).

Problems continued, fights worsened, I avoided everything to do with God and prayer because I
knew I wasn’t living according to His word.  I was very bitter towards Him, and thought that He
hadn’t worked for other people and for my parents and that He wouldn’t work for me.  I didn’t
realize though, that my reference of those seeking God was not always a good one, and were
often lukewarm.

Last year things fell apart.  I had terrible health issues, could not spend much time with my wife,
she informed me that she had strong same sex tendencies and even dated a woman before me,
I had two concussions (these were numbers 5 and 6 total), my wife and I began to talk about
separating, and we eventually did so.  I was so blinded by satan, just sitting here thinking I still
cannot believe things ive done, said and thought.  I honestly was so so wicked.  I feel like I was
the chief of sinners, as Paul said.

A friend rebuked me, and spoke some truth into my life after my wife and I separated in
October.  I became so terribly aware of my sin.  I spent weeks on my face calling out to the Lord
repenting and asking for help.  I went back to my wife and told her I have turned to God and
repented and pleaded with her to do the same.  I begged her to for months, as I continued to
seek the Lord more.  Over those months I rid my life and home of more and more sinful and
ungodly things.  Everything changed, but it seemed too late for my marriage.  I then found out
early this year that my wife had found another woman that she was seeing.  Brother, I really
feel God saw a spark in me and allowed her to be fully run off.  Not allowing her to come back
and again possibly sway me away.

The pain was incredible, the depression out of control.  It all led to my FULL surrender to Christ
early this year, giving Him everything, and a desire to truly seek Him with all my heart.  I found
Him.  I really honestly found Him, and He healed me of so much pain, depression and grief, and
gave me a peace and joy that was not tied to my circumstances.   I continue this daily,
surrendering and yield, and praying for grace to never take my own life back.

He told me that He would give me grace to get through this and is doing so.  I don’t know what
else to do at times but to keep seeking His face and will with all my heart and Obeying! I really
love that word..

I was attending a church.  I was sickened by the love of money, hypocrisy, heresy, the sin that is
allowed to remain by people professing to be believers, the arrogance, the (quote) idleness of time
and fullness of bread, (end quote) the show that everyone puts on in the sanctuary but then in the lobby
before and after making course jokes and flattering each other.  I couldn’t take it and have
pretty much left.  I do believe there is one person there who truly has the desire to be a disciple
of Christ, and I do occasionally go back to share with Him and one other person, to try to make
them aware of what they are sitting in, but they hold tightly on to the church, saying (quote) my family
is here, my friends are here, etc (end quote).  (If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother,
and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my
disciple.)  Some folks try to get me to stay, and “receive the good and spit out the bad”, but its
mostly bad, the sermons seem like something they downloaded, they lack power and
conviction, they water down the word.. I honestly feel its not even right to be there, and to
support this.  I especially cannot give them money and enable their love of money.  I am
meeting with the pastor next week to share some of this with him before I make an exit, at
least sharing some truth and warn him to remove the blood from my own hands.

My family, who during my very difficult times, encouraged me to seek God, but not thinks I
have gone too far.  The church thinks I am strange and looks at me as some radical, all because I
simply do everything to submit to and obey the word of God.  Nobody wants to talk about
obedience, people shun me when I bring it up.  Its lonely at times, and I have really only found
maybe 2 people who really are following, obeying, surrendering all, and waiting on the Lord for
everything.  What brings me comfort is, that this is starting to feel like the narrow path, and
that few will be on this road, and probably even fewer will endure.  (But the one who endures
to the end will be saved.)

So I press on, not looking back..  I am 35 years old, waiting for God to give me direction, and
humbly asking for grace and strength to continue each day.  (especially today).
I pray that God can use me in some way in the future to spread the message of truth.  The scary
part is, that almost nobody wants to hear it.  I have enjoyed the little of what I have seen on
your page, and will keep reading as I find time apart from my usual prayer and study time.
May the Lord bless you.  Have a great day.

Hi Jared, Victor here.

“Brother, I really feel God saw a spark in me and allowed her to be fully run off.  Not
allowing her to come back and again possibly sway me away.”

We believe that’s true. That was not a marriage made in Heaven.

“He told me that He would give me grace to get through this and is doing so.”

Believe Him.

“I was attending a church.  I was sickened by the love of money, hypocrisy, heresy,
the sin that is allowed to remain by people professing to be believers, the arrogance,
the ‘idleness of time and fullness of bread’, the show that everyone puts on in the
sanctuary but then in the lobby before and after making course jokes and flattering
each other….”

“I honestly feel its not even right to be there, and to support this.  I especially cannot
give them money and enable their love of money.”

Yes, Sodom and Gomorrah. Flee fornication.

2 Corinthians 6:14-18 MKJV
(14) Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers; for what fellowship does
righteousness have with lawlessness? And what partnership does light have with
darkness?
(15) And what agreement does Christ have with Belial? Or what part does a believer
have with an unbeliever?
(16) And what agreement does a temple of God have with idols? For you are the
temple of the living God, as God has said, “I will dwell in them and walk among them;
and I will be their God, and they shall be My people.”
(17) Therefore come out from among them and be separated, says the Lord, and do
not touch the unclean thing. And I will receive you
(18) and I will be a Father to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says the
Lord Almighty.
“And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying, Come out of her, My people, that
you may not be partakers of her sins, and that you may not receive of her plagues.
For her sins joined together, even up to Heaven, and God has remembered her unjust
deeds” (Revelation 18:4-5 MKJV).
“Its lonely at times, and I have really only found maybe 2 people who really are
following, obeying, surrendering all, and waiting on the Lord for everything.”
You are wrong about those people. They would not be there if they were believing
and obeying according to His Word:
Isaiah 8:20-22 MKJV
(20) To the Law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this Word, it
is because no light is in them.
(21) And they shall pass through it, hard-pressed and hungry; and it shall be, they
shall be hungry; They shall rave and curse their king and their God, and look upward.
(22) And they shall look to the land; and behold, trouble and darkness and gloom of
anguish! And they are driven away into darkness.
“I pray that God can use me in some way in the future to spread the message of
truth.  The scary part is, that almost nobody wants to hear it.”
All the prophets and saints have experienced the same; it has always been that way,
Jared. So obey, learn and prepare yourself to meet your God. Meeting Him, you’ll
worship Him in spirit and truth and be enabled to speak His Word.

Hi

Praise the Lord, He is faithful!  I was looking at your teachings today and thought I would say
hello and give an update.  I am continuing to follow Father now for well over 1.5 years and over
one year of full surrender!  What an incredible year of learning His ways, testing, trials, obeying,
seeking to now Him better, and finding that more of Him was always what I wanted and needed
in this life!  I now live day to day seeking to know His specific will for me and to do it.  It is not
easy by any means and has certainly come with a cost, and I am learning all the time as to why
Jesus said “count the cost”, “I have not come to bring peace, but a sword”,pick up your cross
and follow me”… However, I continue to find so much joy in this walk, a joy and peace that I
would never able to find within myself or in the world during my unconverted days!!  Praise
God

I was divorced a little less than a year ago, and needless to say there are many opinions on this
topic from other “believers”, and I have practically been persecuted on this topic as well as
others in my seeking to follow Him.  I can honestly say that He spoke to me and led me through
my divorce and had more to do with the divorce than He did with the sinful marriage.  I have
studied the subject of marriage and divorce and am shocked at what the Lord has revealed to
me, at how much He hates intermarriage of believers and unbelievers, and how that is truly the
sin!  He may hate putting away, however intermarriage is an abomination and is the first sin.
(Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem;
for Judah hath profaned the holiness of Jehovah which he loveth, and hath married the
daughter of a foreign god. Malachi 2:11 (ASV)

I am amazed at how He uses the death of relationships to break down our false gods, humble
us, and to fix our eyes on HIM!  I honestly am so so thankful at the seeming destruction of my
past life, and what He has done for me.  I seek to bring Him glory though my life now and bring
Him pleasure by doing His will!

I have met a young lady who was converted around the same time as myself 1.5 years ago, and
discipled her for a few months last year.  I found that God would do amazing things to show us
He approved of our fellowship, and I started seeking Him about her being a potential wife.
Somewhat recently we have been discussing this and both are in agreement on this matter, in
that we both have seen His working in our lives together both desire a marriage relationship in
each other, and both desire to have wonderful fellowship with one another as much as we
can.  I must say I held extremely loosely as did she, and we did not want to step out of His will in
a relationship and let Him confirm every step of the way.  At times, surrendering all and giving
each other up to Him, as if to place one another on the alter and say “You have heard our petitions, nevertheless, YOUR will be done”.  I am amazed at how a relationship between and man and woman can be in the Lord.  We have self control, we have kept ourselves sexually pure, we do not allow ourselves to lust over one another, we value each other as fellow
followers of Christ more than anything, and we watch for each other carefully to stay in the
faith.   The Lord has shown me consistently hundreds of times Psalm 128:3 when I have prayed
about her or when I am around her, yet He also shows me to WAIT!  I cannot tell you how
amazing it has been to learn directly from Him to WAIT on Him for this area of my life and
others!!  What am amazing principle that He is teaching me that you don’t hear in any
“church”!

I have a few questions, and would like your wisdom on these matters if you would!  I rarely
seek man’s wisdom, since He honestly answers my prayers and shows me so much, however I
do believe that good instruction is important, and there is safety in a multitude of counsel, so
that we do not have to stumble and struggle.  So I have only asked a very select few for any
advice.

1. Do you have any tools/references on Hebrew/Greek study of scripture?   See the attached, I
found this somewhere but could not find the source, what a great tool this would be for every
passage of scripture.

Matthew 5 31-40 Study.pdf

2. Do you have any teachings or advice on dealing with those who think they can follow Christ
yet keep the torah?  I have recently encountered this deception where someone has tried to
sway me from pure and sincere devotion towards Christ, and into keeping of ordinances.  I
hoped you would have something I could direct him towards.
3. What bible translation do you recommend?  I have used many and compare 3-4 including
interlinear in my studies right now.  NKJV and ASV or NASB seem to be great so far.  Lets face it,
some translations are just deceptive, and not all are created equal.
4. Your website has much truth on the subject of marriage/divorce, but nothing about
remarriage as I can see.  I know what He has revealed to me on this, however just wondering if
you had any teachings on this.  I could share some of what I have documented as well if you
like.
5. I continue to stay “pure”as it relates to the false church, as most are deceived and being
deceived.  I do desire good fellowship and wondered how you folks go about this.  I think at
times having 5 or 6 people in my home once or twice a week would be a wonderful start for
fellowship, however I am waiting on His leading in this.  I also have some desire to move near to
a true brother in Alabama to have fellowship.  My job or family no longer keeps me here, I
really desire to have fellowship with His true followers and find out what He has for the rest of
my life here!

God Bless, and thank you!

Hi Jared,

You say of your girlfriend/fiancée: “I have met a young lady who was converted
around the same time as myself 1.5 years ago, and discipled her for a few months last
year.”

How can a newly repentant believer (taking your word for what happened to you
recently) disciple another believer? Babies raising babies? It doesn’t happen in this
world or the Kingdom of God. And you haven’t even been born of the Spirit (not a
criticism; something to look forward to if you believe).

We don’t have a witness that this relationship is what you think it is. You’re in a
fantasy in your mind, not the reality of the Lord. We’re sorry to have to say this to
you, Jared, and fear it will be taken wrongly. This isn’t against your girlfriend or you.
It’s the truth for both of your sakes. Only a single eye on the Lord can and will
prevail.

Your questions really aren’t priorities, given the more urgent matter at hand.

I appreciate your concern and exhortation as it relates to my state in the Lord and you are right
that makeing the eye single is the only way, and He must be my only focus.

I also see that you passed condemnation on a matter that you have little information of, that is
whether or not I am born of the Spirit of God or not. I have already judged myself in this matter
and do so daily and do not take it lightly since He is the only hope that I have in this life. The
fact is I have good fruit in my life and wisdom is justified by her children. I have freedom from
besetting and lifestyle sin, I have continued freedom from many temptations, many answered
prayer, a transformed heart that is being transformed daily, i am led by His Spirit in many
situations, I am obidient to the words of Jesus as much as I can with the light that I have today, I
have a very healthy fear of God, I walk in the light as His light is shown on my heart and life. I
know the day that His Spirit came into my life, and I was set free of many things. I Do have
someone who has instructed me but I have been taught only by God since it is only Him that
gives understanding to follow and do His will from love in my heart for Him.

This evidence is what I go by, not a prayer, not simply stopping of some wrongdoing, or some
religious routines.

I honestly thank you for your admonishment, and I ask that you heed mine.  I believe you strive
hard for God As we all should and possibly you are far ahead of many other as it relates to the
amount of time you have spent doing so. However this time does not make you righteous,
obedience is what He requires and I see a gaping hole in it. You have not loved your brothers on
earth that you can see(in truth) so then how can you love God whom you do not see? What
kind of ministry sets itself up so high as to validate itself based on how much it condemns
others? Have you ever seen Jesus do such a thing? He passed judgement on the Pharisees,
hypocrites, religious people but did not turn away those seeking and humbling themselves
before Him in repentance.

The truth is, gentleman that even you see through a glass dimly and only God knows who’s are
His. Maybe you have some concerns with me, as I do with you but I will not condemn you, I will
examine your fruit and warn you as I am doing. Iron sharpens iron, they do not dull or break
one another. I see innumerable issues in other “believers”, but He has shown me that
condemning them only separated me from God and I had to repent of that. The truth delivered
in love set me free, and we must do the same for others as we are led. It is then up to that
person to turn and be humbled and we should support them.

You cannot spiritually murder people and think that you are justified, if this is your ministry
then I must “leave them alone”.

I will take your admonishment to the Lord, I pray you do the same with mine.

Jared, I decided to find your FB page after receiving your foolish and contradictory
letter in reply to the counsel the Lord gave us for you. We see error and contradiction
flourishing, yet you’re wise in your own eyes. So be it. Do your thing, indulge in your
religious self, and that, in the vain worship of the Lord, and suffer the brunt of your
waywardness for which the Lord died to ultimately deliver you from.

Let me be “arrogant” with you here: We know what we’re talking about; you don’t. By
the Lord, we see and know much more than you can comprehend. But go on thinking
you know better, and we, using your words you speak against us in your reply email,
will and do say of you, “leave them alone.” We have no alternative. So be it.

Victor
