First I rightfully still do not endorse any Christians adds, anyone, any person, any organization, any Church  now trying to make any money from  the gospel, or begging, asking for money or even  any of the adds here.  I also do not endorse any of  Bibles, books, tapes listed here for sale too. Jesus said as we have freely received so we are freely to give. Hirelings in their greed and visible lack of faith don't do that. I do believe we should have the faith for God to supply what anyone needs  freely to anyone who needs it. 


 
Beware - Be aware!
(Jude 1:2 KJV)  Mercy unto you, and peace and love, be multiplied.
 
The best way to spot a counterfeit money is to know what the  real money looks like. The best way not to be lied to, deceived by others about the Bible, God, Jesus etc., is to know the Bible itself. To always see for yourself is what is being presented agrees actually with what the Bible says. I can safely said that most people are not aware in detail what the Bible says, so they are lied to, seduced, deceived by many others as a result and often.
 
Firstly here is a direct Bible verse that the incarnate persons Jesus was God himself.
 
Matt 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
 
John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2  The same was in the beginning with God. 3  All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4  In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8  He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9  That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10  He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11  He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12  But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13  Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 15  John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.
 
Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
 
1 John 1:1  That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2  (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and show unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3  That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.  4  And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full.
 
(Isa 51:7 KJV)  Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.
 
(Mat 23:10 KJV)  Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ.
 
(2 Cor 11:2 KJV)  For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3  But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtlety, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.
 
(Isa 52:11 KJV)  Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD
 
(2 Cor 6:17 KJV)  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,
 
(Mat 25:41 KJV)  Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
 
(Luke 13:27 KJV)  But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity.
 
(1 Tim 4:1 KJV)  Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
 
(2 Tim 2:19 KJV)  Nevertheless the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity.
 
(Eph 5:11 KJV)  And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them. 12   For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret. 13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.
 
Beware of men, as well as beware also of false false christians, false pastors., false teachers, false prophets, false apostles
 
(Exo 23:21 KJV)  Beware of him, and obey his voice, provoke him not; for he will not pardon your transgressions: for my name is in him.
 
(Mat 7:15 KJV)  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
 
(Mat 10:17 KJV)  But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
 
(Mat 16:6 KJV)  Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
 
(Mat 16:11 KJV)  How is it that ye do not understand that I spake it not to you concerning bread, that ye should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?
 
(Mark 12:38 KJV)  And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
 
(Luke 12:15 KJV)  And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.
 
(Luke 20:46 KJV)  Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;
 
(Phil 3:2 KJV)  Beware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the concision.

(1 John 4:1 KJV)  Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

(Mat 24:5 KJV)  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
 
(1 John 2:18 KJV)  Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.
 
(Mat 24:24 KJV)  For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
 
(Mark 13:22 KJV)  For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall show signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect.
 
(2 Pet 2:1 KJV)  But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
 
(2 Cor 11:13 KJV)  For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.  14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 15  Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
You still do have to compare all teachings directly with the word of God itself.
 
(Heb 4:12 KJV)  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. 13 Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do. 14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
 
(2 Tim 4:3 KJV)  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.
 
(Rev 19:9 KJV)  And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
 
(Mat 7:16 KJV)  Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?  17  Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. 18  A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19  Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20  Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.
 
(Prov 14:12 KJV)  There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.
 
(Heb 9:27 KJV)  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
 
(Mat 7:21 KJV)  Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 22  Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. 24  Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:  25  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. 26  And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: 27  And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.
 
(Rev 19:11 KJV)  And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12  His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. 14  And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. 15  And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. 16  And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.
 
(1 John 2:18 KJV)  Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time.

Let no man deceive you thus. Know what the Bible itself says.
 
(Mark 13:5 KJV)  And Jesus answering them began to say, Take heed lest any man deceive you:
 
(Eph 5:6 KJV)  Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.
 
(1 John 3:7 KJV)  Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous.
 
Jesus is God, Jesus is Lord of Lord, Jersus is the word of God, Jesus is the Messiah, King of Kings, Jesus is the one who is faithful and true, and Jesus  is the center of the Universe, the center of the whole Bible, Jesus the center of all valid prophecy now as well. Jesse alone will judge you when you die and no one else.
 
(Isa 45:22 KJV)  Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else.
 
...and what about the Mormons? The Mormons and the Jehovah witnesses they are always clearly the anti Christ cults, who teach another false Jesus, and they are people who really generally do not know or follow the Bible itself but rather they follow teachers who have added to and  distorted the true word of God, the Holy Bible.
 
(Rev 3:19 KJV)  As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
 
(Heb 5:12 KJV)  For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat.
 
(John 3:16 KJV)    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18  He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
 
Jesus alone saves you from hell and death, and not your church, your good words, your own efforts too.
 
(Heb 9:27 KJV)  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
 
(John 5:22 KJV)  For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
 
(John 5:27 KJV)  And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
 
(John 5:30 KJV)  I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
 
(John 8:16 KJV)  And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.
 
(John 9:39 KJV)  And Jesus said, For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
 
(John 12:31 KJV)  Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out.
 
(2 Cor 5:10 KJV)  For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.
 
(James 2:13 KJV)  For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath showed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.
 
(1 Pet 4:17 KJV)  For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?
 
(2 Pet 2:4 KJV)  For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment;
 
(2 Pet 2:9 KJV)  The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:
 
(2 Pet 3:7 KJV)  But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
 
(Jude 1:6 KJV)  And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.
 
(Jude 1:15 KJV)  To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him.
 
(Heb 9:28 KJV)  So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation. 
 
Jesus is God alone, and you will nver be the  God like Jesus still too. 
 
Many Early Christian writers have often said that Christians worshiped Jesus as God.
 
The deity of Christ is found fully, clearly in the scriptures in the New Testament from the first  begining of the Christian church Matt. 2:2,11; 14:33; 28:9; John 9:35-38; and Heb. 1:6 as well as the Old Testament:  
 
Zech. 12:10, "And I will pour out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced."
 
Exodus 6:2-3, "God spoke further to Moses and said to him, "I am the Lord; 3 and I appeared to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, as God Almighty, but by My name, Lord, I did not make Myself known to them."  Compare with "Not that any man has seen the Father, except the One who is from God; He has seen the Father," (John 6:46).  The point is that God Almighty was seen, but not the father.  He was the pre-incarnate Christ who is seen in the Old Testament, who is defined in nature.
 
1 Cor. 1:2, "to the church of God which is at Corinth, to those who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, saints by calling, with all who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours."
  1. The phrase, "call upon the name of the Lord [YHWH]" is used in the OT only in reference to God (i.e., Psalm 116:4), never anyone else.  Yet, the Greek equivalent (LXX) of the phrase is applied to Jesus in 1 Cor. 1:2.  It says that the church "calls upon the name of the Lord Jesus."  Why is a phrase used ONLY of God in the OT, applied to Jesus in the NT?
  2. The LXX translates "call upon the name of YHWH" as "call upon the name of the Lord [kurios]." The phrase "call upon the name of the Lord is applied to Jesus.  
Note  again the  biblical passages underlining the fact that Jesus is God:

Jesus calls Himself God

Matthew 12:8  For the Son of man is Lord even of the Sabbath day.

Matthew 28:19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Mark 2:5-12  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, "Son, thy sins be forgiven thee." But there was certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts, "Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? who can forgive sins but God only?"

And immediately when Jesus perceived in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, he said unto them, "Why reason ye these things in your hearts? Whether is it easier to say to the sick of the palsy, 'Thy sins be forgiven thee'; or to say, 'Arise, and take up thy bed, and walk?'

But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins," (he saith to the sick of the palsy,) "I say unto thee, 'Arise, and take up thy bed, and go thy way into thine house.'"

And immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went forth before them all; insomuch that they were all amazed, and glorified God, saying, 'We never saw it on this fashion.'

John 5:17-18  But Jesus answered them, "My Father worketh hitherto, and I work." Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him because he not only had broken the Sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

John 8:58  Jesus said unto them, "Verily, verily I say unto you, 'Before Abraham was, I am'." [compare with Exodus 3:14 - And God said unto Moses, "I AM THAT I AM," and he said, "Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, 'I AM hath sent me unto you.'"]

John 10:30-33; 36-39  [Jesus said,] "I and my Father are one." Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Jesus answered them, "Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?"

The Jews answered him, saying, "For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God." [Jesus said,] "Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, 'Thou blasphemest'; because I said, 'I am the Son of God?'

If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him." Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand...

John 13:13-14  You call Me Teacher and Lord, and you say well, for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another's feet.

Revelation 1:8  "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending," saith the Lord, "which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty."

Jesus is called God by others or by the Bible

Isaiah 9:6  For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

Matthew 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, "God with us."

John 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

John 20:26-29  And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, "Peace be unto you."

Then saith he to Thomas, "Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing."

And Thomas answered and said unto him, "My Lord and my God." Jesus saith unto him, "Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed."

John 21:17  [Peter said to Jesus], "Lord, thou knowest all things."

Acts 20:28  Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.

Romans 9:5  Of [the Israelites] as concerning the flesh Christ came, who is over all, God blessed for ever.

Revelation 17:14  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

Colossians 2:9  For in him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

All things created through the sole God Jesus (and thus He existed before everything).

John 1:1-5,9-14  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.  He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
   And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Colossians 1:12-20  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: in whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: for by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: and he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell; and, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.

Hebrews 1:1-8  God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.  For unto which of the angels said he at any time, 'Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee?' And again, 'I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?'  And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, 'And let all the angels of God worship him.' And of the angels he saith, 'Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.'  But unto the Son he saith, 'Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.'
 
“There are many documented instances by legitimate, respected historians living during the era after Christ’s resurrection that refered to Christ as the Son of God and as divine long before the 3rd Century.”
For example:
• Ignatius in A.D. 105: “God himself was manifest in human form.”
• Justin the Martyr in A.D. 160: “Being the first begotten word of God is even God; the father of the universe has a son and he is even God.”
• Irenaeus in A.D. 180: “Our Lord and God, the savior and king: He is God, for the name Emmanuel indicates this.”
 
 Jesus who is God, along with God and the Holy Sprit created the devil and the angels at the same week that they  had created earth, Heaven, Adam and Eve now too.
 
(Ezek 28:12 KJV)  Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.  13  Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14  Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15  Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16  By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17  Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

All of the Angels, the devil included  were created to serve man now firstly too and many of them sinfully rebelled against this task.
 
(Heb 1:13 KJV)  But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? 14  Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
 
(Isa 41:20 KJV)  That they may see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.
 
(Isa 42:5 KJV)  Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
 
(Isa 45:8 KJV)  Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
 
(Isa 45:12 KJV)  I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded.
 
(Isa 45:18 KJV)  For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am the LORD; and there is none else.
 
(Isa 54:16 KJV)  Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.
 
(Gen 1:1 KJV)  In the beginning God created the heaven ( singular) and the earth (singular).
 
Angels were made during thesix days of creations
 
(Gen 2:1 KJV)  Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them.
 
(Gen 2:4 KJV)  These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth ( singular)  and the heavens, ( plural)
 
Earth and the three heavens came into existence during the 6 days of creations now as well.
 
The First Heaven: Earth Atmosphere
  • Deut. 11:17 -- Then the LORD's anger will burn against you, and he will shut the heavens so that it will not rain and the ground will yield no produce....
  • Deut. 28:12 -- The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands.

  • Jeremiah 8:2 -- They will be exposed to the sun and the moon and all the stars of the heavens which they have loved and served....
  • Isaiah 13:10 -- The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light.

     The Third Heaven:  God's Dwelling Place

  • 1 Kings 8:30 (phrase repeated numerous times in following verses) -- then hear from heaven, your dwelling place...

(Heb 1:6 KJV)  And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
 
(Heb 1:7 KJV)  And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
 
(Heb 1:8 KJV)  But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
 
(Heb 1:9 KJV)  Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
 
(Heb 1:10 KJV)  And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
 
Jesus is the creator, superior, the  Lord of all of the angels too.
 
(2 Th 1:7 KJV)  And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
 
(2 Th 1:8 KJV)  In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
 
(2 Th 1:9 KJV)  Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;
 
(1 Pet 3:22 KJV)  Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him.
 
(Mat 13:41 KJV)  The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
 
(Rom 8:38 KJV)  For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39  Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
 
(1 Cor 6:3 KJV)  Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
 
(Col 2:18 KJV)  Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,
 
(1 Pet 1:12 KJV)  Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
 
Do note again that the  Angels and the devil were soley created during the first earth creation, the six days of God's earth creation. For the Angels were created as ministering spirits for man (Heb 1:14 KJV)  Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
 
Yes, the devil like man was also created by God, Jesus and he the devil also had walked in the garden of Eden. (Ezek 28:1 KJV)  The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,  2  Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God: 3  Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: 4  With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures: 5  By thy great wisdom and by thy traffic hast thou increased thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches: 6  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart as the heart of God; 7  Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness. 8  They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas. 9  Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee. 10  Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD. 11  Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 12  Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty. 13  Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created. 14  Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. 15  Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee. 16  By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire. 17  Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee. 18  Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee. 19  All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
 
and there are only two earths.. not three.. (Rev 21:1 KJV)  And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
 
As we can see most people really do not read their Bible, know what the Bible really says, but they wrongfully take their leanings from what others say the Bible says.
 
The following are the ten most dangerous groups in North  America  today,
 
1  The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormonism).
 
A very subtle, but a definate spiritual deception, an Anti Christ Movement  started in 1830 by Joseph Smith. This  group contends that it is the only true Church, and that all Christians outside Mormonism are following a deficient Gospel and a false Christ.  What does Mormonism teach?
 
Mormonism says: Jesus and Satan, like the rest of us, were spirit brothers and sons of God before the spirit of Jesus was given a body by Mary in Bethlehem. The Mormon "Book of Moses" presents Satan and Jesus as contending for the privilege of taking a body of flesh in order to become the redeemer, with Jesus winning the contest. [See Joseph Smith, Pearl of Great Price, Book of Moses 4:1-4.]
 
Mormonism also teaches that Jesus was the physical son of God the Father and Mary, and that there is nothing in His life more than what is attainable by anyone else.
 
"When the Virgin Mary conceived the child Jesus… he was not begotten by the Holy Ghost. And who is his Father? He is the first of the human family. …Jesus our elder brother, was begotten in the flesh by the same character that was in the garden of Eden."
     -Brigham Young, Journal of Discourses, 1:50-51, as cited in Gordon H. Fraser, Is Mormonism Christian? (Chicago: Moody, 1955), p. 58.
 
"His humanity is to be recognized as real and ordinary ...whatever happened to him may happen to any one of us. …The divinity of Jesus, and the divinity of all other noble and stately souls, in so far as they, too, have been influenced by a spark of Deity - can be recognized as manifestations of the Divine."
     -Parley P. Pratt, Key to the Science of Theology (Salt Lake City: Deseret, 1883) (emphasis added).
 
The Bible says: Jesus Christ has existed eternally as God the second Person of the Trinity, and then took on a human nature at His birth in Bethlehem. Since then He exists eternally as one Person with both divine and human natures Learn more about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints - GO...
 
Mormonism says: All human beings and spirits, including Jesus and Satan, existed as spirit beings before being born. Physical birth gives bodies to these spirits, and an opportunity to choose right or wrong. Thus the present life is a period of probation. The way a person lives in this life determines their status in the life after the resurrection. If the deeds of this life have been satisfactory and all temple obligations have been fulfilled, the individual becomes a god and is considered eligible to create "spirit children" as God the Father did and populate a world of his own.

The Bible says: There is no pre-existence of human spirits in an earlier life before our earthly existence; the Bible does not teach this in any form. And humanity is permanently on a lower level than God. Though we may become like Him in moral purity in heaven, we never become infinite in regard to time, space or ability. And the Bible says nothing about populating other worlds - simply about the future. Jesus and the Bible is the sole word of God too. 

2  The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society (Jehovah's Witnesses).  Anonther Anti Christ Movement  
Militantly anti-historic Christian tenets. This group began in the 1870s with Charles Taze Russell. They not only deny the essentials of the Christian faith, but the control exercised over the membership is highly destructive.  Learn more about the Jehovah's Witnesses - GO...
 
3 The Church of Scientology.
A do-it-yourself salvation, science fiction group that masquerades as the true Church, lightly sprayed with a thin veneer of Christianity..
 
4 The Twelve Tribes.
This group began in the early 1970s with Elbert Eugene Spriggs. They claim that salvation can only be found by giving all possessions to them and living in their community. All personal decision-making power is given over to the leadership.  An open letter to a prospective member of the Messianic Communities (aka Twelve Tribes) - GO...
 
5 The Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity (Unification Church).
Founded in 1954 by Sun Myung Moon, this highly authoritarian and destructive group teaches that Jesus failed on the cross. Moon is now the mediator between God and man.
 
6 The International Churches of Christ (Boston Movement).
This highly evangelistic group which began in 1978 with Kip McKean embraces most of the main tenets of the historic Church. Teaches that it is the only true Church and is highly authoritarian, with immense control over members' lives.
 
7 The Family (Children of God).
This communal group was founded by David "Moses" Berg. A strange mixture of basic Christian tenets and almost total sexual license. Very controlling and manipulative.
 
8 Christian Identity Movement (Aryan Nations, Christian Identity Church, Klu Klux Klan, etc.).
A loose-knit confederation of various small groups that are militantly anti-government and conspiracy driven. Each group holds differing, deviant Christian tenets. All hold to Caucasians being the descendants of the ten "lost" Tribes of Israel, God's true people.
 
9 The Nation of Islam (Black Muslims).
Began in 1930s by W. D. Fard. Group teaches that the black man is good, the white man is the devil, and that Jesus was merely a prophet. Highly controlling group.  Learn more about the Nation of Islam - GO...
 
10 United Pentecostal Church (UPC).
A highly controlling, legalistic group that was formed in 1945. This group denies the Trinity and teaches that in order to be saved one must be baptized in the name of Jesus only.

Why do the supposedly sincere people still go astray and follow a cult, false relgion?
 
(Rom 1:17 KJV)  For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.  18  For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. 20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: 21  Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23  And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 24  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25  Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
 
(Mat 12:45 KJV)  Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the first. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation.
 
"This really Is a false cult, divisive, heretical group, ungodly one and I have been to some  of their churches  and they do not live, practice  the gospel as well, also they do visibly even cheat, lie, steal for they are religious but they do not have the true faith. A heretic, or the false cults, groups do not"
 
It seems the characteristics of a bad church are simple, they tend to follow a set pattern..
- they do have a one man ministry, not a ministry of elders, they do have thus  hireling, prostitute for a pastor who wants money for himself mainly.. people there exalt the man and not Jesus.
 
-they look for false and unique  reasons both to exalt themselves and to draw people unto them  such as we believe in Jesus only not on God the father, son and holy Sprit.
 
- they uphold mainly certain portions of the Bible and not the whole Bible,  they are isolationists and dictators.
 
- they are exclusive, for they wrongfully do not fellowship with all true believers.
 
- the people in the church themselves do not know the Bible, they falsely count on the pastors and elders only to study it, know it, explain it to them
 
- they wrongfully believe that preaching the gospel, truth is an acceptable alternative to living the gospel but this is not so as well.
for they are the tares amongst the wheat..
 
(Mat 13:24 KJV)  Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field: 25  But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. 26   But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also. 27  So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares? 28  He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. 
 
"The Speaker she  appeared honest and sincere. Her teachings were idealistic - She spoke of love for all mankind, peace, and abstinence from many vices in life" "These teachings initially seemed good to me and they went along with my idealistic thoughts. ""There was some personal, materialistic benefit, need  for me in joining this group as well".  Even though they boasted continuously of not being a part of an established religion, I never suspected that I was becoming next  part of a cult or the dangerous religious group." "I had said that could never have happened to me before this. For she the speaker  firstly herself did not practise these teachings of hers herself.." And by  their own fruits you can tell who they are.. even by the evidence of spiritual inconsistencies in their own life, such as cheating, lying and stealing even. We were taught also that we were the sole family and that there were "no secrets or private business" in the family. We had to seek counsel only from the head, the sole leadership even in all things, even for selecting a marriage partner, for pursuing a career or higher education, job. We had to have his or her  approval before leaving town on a vacation or job trip. He or she  called it "having a covering." In to the leader's  counsel brought anger and sure reprimand. We were told that submission and obedience on our part was required for our souls, that they were the sole ones appointed to look out for our souls. The Church leader, pastor  even manipulated each of  the members for their own personal gains.

The things that I also lost, along with other members in the group was our right to privacy - to have one's personal live and activities kept private"." I lost this all for  the common good supposedly." One false rule was to only socialize within the group, our sole true spiritual family, so all other outsiders now were a part of the world destined for damnation. I was even  discouraged from spending a lot of time with my own natural family. Even Marriage or any intimate relationship outside of the group was falsely  forbidden, discouraged." "My husband understood, saw the fallacy and mind controlling tactics that were being used and refused to continue with the group, but I wrongfully  stayed with it.

All persons  need to be aware of the ear marks of mind control. Mind control is another  form of slavery! Each one of  us firstly must treasure the gift of human freedom in Christ to even think and choose for ourselves as Christ leads us himself.. be ye not false servants of men..We all are still personally accountable to and before God for our own acts, decisions next too. Many unsuspecting  persons  are still taken today into a false Church, a cult, a clan, one that wrongfully favours a certain race, appearance even or a certain theology, goods, or a certain church style..  The body of Christ is one big fellowship of equals. of  believers in Christ,  so do beware of the isolationists, of someone who is too nice and kind, even who invites you even to to a house meeting or any church meeting where they do try to  isolate you from all of the outside contacts with any other believers, they ask you to only do things their way, they do intensely cram you with INFORMATION on why their group alone is  good and correct.BEWARE!  BEWARE of anyone that claims to have the sole  divine gift or calling to lead followers into perfect truths and salvations. They are rather building followers after their own kind to hopefully bring glory upon themselves, to seduce you even, to be worshipped by you and other men as well, and even to financially profit as a result too. Follow after Christ and his flock and not mere men and women.. "Wh
ile searching for the truth I still  fell into a pit"..
 
ONE OF THE BEST WAY TO CATCH FISH STILL IS WITH LIVE BAIT OR PARTIAL TRUTHS. False persons, groups often use some truths.

"All the great outpourings of the past have had their outstanding truths. Luther's truth was Justification by Faith. Wesley's was Sanctification. The Baptists taught the premillenial [sic] coming of Christ. The Missionary Alliance taught Divine Healing. The Pentecostal outpouring has restored the Baptism of the Holy Ghost to its rightful place. The next great outpouring is going to be marked by all these other truths plus such a demonstration of the nine gifts of the Spirit as the world, not even the Apostolic world, has ever witnessed before. This revival will be short and will be the last before the Rapture of the Church."

And yet in many of these same groups the followers, and leaders still next became corrupt.. the same groups are too often fake today rather. The Christian Missionary Alliance now included.

EVEN IF A GROUP HOLDS TO SOME VALID TRUTHS SUCH AS
- Jesus Christ is the sole Savior, Lord of your life.
- The concept of the restoration of the Tabernacle of David. Praise & Worship emphasized as a means to usher (1) in God's presence and (2) to usher God's people into His presence. Singing in the spirit congregationally, I.e. in other tongues. The "song of the Lord" a prophetic song or one in other tongues but interpreted
- The belief that God has now restored all the ministry gifts back to the Church, especially the office of the prophet and apostle {this is where today's prophetic/apostolic move comes from}.
- The practice of laying on of hands to be filled with the Holy Spirit (and the evidence of speaking in other tongues).
- The practice of laying on of hands to impart spiritual gifts
- The belief Christians can be demonized and need to be delivered through the laying on of hands.
- Divine healing is obtained by faith and also is imparted via the laying on of hands
- Emphasis on spiritual warfare
- Emphasis on personal and directive prophecy
- Anointed Women have a full and equal ministry role in the Church, I.e. women pastors, prophetesses, elders, etc.
- The Rapture, the second coming of Christ is inevitable, soon
- Emphasis on Missions, evangelism, the Bible, a Pastor..

The same group can still be false, led by false men and not by the Holy Spirit.
 
Some quick signs of a false, cultist leader is that one  rapidly sees their own personal visible inconsistences, they even show false partialities towards certain persons, they can be seen by their own lack of love towards others, and by their being mostly unavailable to help others now as well. They are also know to run away from prayer meetings.. they hold strange and different doctrines too.. and are known for supporting isolated verses of scriptures and making major doctrines of them too.

(John 10:1 KJV)  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.2  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3  To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 4  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5  And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.
(Mat 10:17 KJV)  But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; 18  And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. 19  But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. 20  For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you. 21  And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death. 22  And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. 23  But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.

(Mat 7:15 KJV)  Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
 
(Mat 24:11 KJV)  And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
 
(John 10:12 KJV)  But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.13  The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. 14   I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
 
(Rom 10:3 KJV)  For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.  
 
(2 Tim 4:1 KJV)  I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2  Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. 3  For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4  And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 

(John 15:10 KJV)  If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. 12  This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
 
 The true pastor nurtures and nourishes his congregation and is available to them even at off hours. He knows his accountability is to God first, and then the to church. I have use the word "true" in this essay concerning pastors for there are also false false pastors. 
 
(Rev 19:10 KJV)  "And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy." Yes there is a demon called "Jesus", too that pretends to be even Jesus and many people wrongfully worship him instead of the real Jesus. Ironically it was in Calgary amongst the mostly still false Christians I had learned that there was an  evil spirit called Jesus and many people where EVEN  filled with this evil spirit rather.. " For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect." Note! There is  a real counterfeit, evil spirit of Jesus which exist today even in Christian Churches and which falsely allows Christians to stay unrepentant of their unacceptable personal sins and allows them to continue to do them now as well!!! Note even Apostle Paul said in his day that there were those who preached "another Jesus". 
 
2 Cor 11:3-4 (NKJV) says: "But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. {4} For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted; you may well put up with it!
 
There is a simple way to see if someone has the true Jesus or not. By true Jesus, I mean the one of the Bible, not the Jesus  of Mormonism who is the brother of the devil, nor the Jehovah's Witness Jesus who is Michael the Archangel, and certainly not the one of the New Age Movement who is simply a man in tune with the divine consciousness.

      In cult theologies, Jesus is a creation in one form or another (this is why the Jehovah's Witnesses add the word ‘other' four times to Col. 1:16-17). Therefore, He is not to be prayed to, worshiped, or called God.

   If you are a Christian then you will be able to pray to Jesus, not just through. You will be able to worship Jesus equally with the Father. And you will be able to call Jesus your Lord and God. A cultist cannot do this. A cultist has a false Jesus, and, therefore, a false hope of salvation.

(Col 3:9 KJV)  Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
 
(1 Tim 2:7 KJV)  Whereunto I am ordained a preacher, and an apostle, (I speak the truth in Christ, and lie not;) a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and verity.
 
(James 3:14 KJV)  But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
 
Sadly even these days most people are still like sheep who can be too easily, predictably misled, taken down the wrong path, even because they are often lazy, ignorant and this is all  now easily done  just by telling them deliberately firstly a big lie, and a really big lie such as the lie that the earth itself started by a natural  process.. In fact the natural processes degenerate and tend rather not to evolve is the real scientific truth, fact still according to the second  law of thermodynamics in engineering. science.
 There are many churches, cults  today that PREACH ANOTHER JESUS and allow this false spirit of Jesus today. An evil Spirt called Jesus too!! Clearly A Jesus that is different than the Jesus of the Bible.

(John 10:1 KJV)  Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.2  But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3  To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. 4  And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. 5  And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers.

(John 15:10 KJV)  If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love. 11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
 
(Psa 37:10 KJV)  For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.
 
(Psa 37:11 KJV)  But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
 
(Isa 66:2 KJV)  For all those things hath mine hand made, and all those things have been, saith the LORD: but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word.
