Beloved in Christ, and dear friends,

There is no doubt we are living in the last days. In fact, I think most of you would agree, we are in the final few seconds of the last days. Jesus warns us....."Be careful how you hear...." This is a warning we should not take lightly. With all the hype, and entertainment, and levity, and soft soap on sin in most pulpits, we need a "hearing ear," tuned to the Holy Spirit, that we may discern what is from God, and what is coming from someone who is a "cloud without rain," (a man with no anointing), in the pulpit !

Not hearing the fullness of the word of God, will cause the heart to harden, and become indifferent over time to the "real truth" of the word of God. I have Pastored  people who at one time were on fire for the Lord, and the truth of the Word, and walked as mighty men and women of God, only to hear later on, they had joined some Church that pleased the flesh, and allowed them to be comfortable, with no accountability, and no piercing word coming forth to draw them deeper into Jesus heart, or bring them to a place of conviction over their sin, or cause a deep hunger for the Lord.

Now, after sitting in this atmosphere of mixture, and ease in Zion, after being so very entertained and amused and comfortable, they "balk" at the truth of the Word of God. They even become angry and begin to distance themselves from you who love the 'whole Word of God,' and not just parts.

They begin to say you are "negative and harsh, judgmental," they have so many excuses for not talking to you any more about spiritual things. They have been desensitized to the truth, and have become proud in their wandering away from the message of the cross. The preachers spend no time , no quality time in the word and prayer, and their focus has been placed on buildings, and business, and a host of other things, as though they were running a business, rather than leading sheep to the heart of Jesus.

The bible teaches us the ...."The righteous are bold as a lion..." They will speak the truth, and not fear man, or have the fear of offending someone with the word of God. The reason these men cannot, and will not preach the whole truth, is because they themselves are slaves to sin. They have no fire, no anointing, no real passion, or vision of God's heart. They are busy. Busy with projects, busy with raising funds for this and that, busy with business meetings, and all sorts of so called clergy work.

So, the congregation sits under a dose of very dry food week after week, after week, and all that can be done is to tell stories, and jokes, and short messages, and most of this is nothing more than what you find on secular T.V. with the "motivational speakers," selling their  DVD's, and package deals on how to feel better about your self, and live a fulfilling life....(without Jesus).

The bible is being "weeded out," of most every pulpit. Big screens are replacing the Bible. No longer to you have to get in the word for yourself, and look up a passage, and underline scripture, and learn the word. No, it is all placed on a big screen for you, and there is no need to even bring your bible in some places. In other places, there is hardly any word, just empty talk. This brings death. It breaks the heart of God, and leads his people into darkness. Again, then when confronted with the truth, they become defensive, angry, cut you off, because they are "convinced," you are just another one of those critical, cynical, judging, negative people trying to find fault with their playground church.

Beloved. I pray you guard your hearts from such foolishness, and from being allured by the Jezebel spirit, and the fun loving motivational speakers in the pulpits, without anointing, trying to "make things happen," work it up, and convince you "God is really here."!

We need a visitation from the Holy Spirit in the body of Christ. A true visitation of His presence, that brings, conviction of sin, brokenness, and contrition, godly sorrow, and true repentance that leads to life ! This can only come to a people who are hungry for the truth of the Word of God, and His Spirit having total control, and having His way in our gatherings. A people who will voluntarily lay their life on the altar of God's perfect will, as living sacrifices, and stay there until He deals with their hearts.

I have included a message below, by the late Milton Green, a very good brother, and friend. I pray, that you will take the time to read it, and look at the rest of the material by brother Milt, and others as well, on our website, www.bibleword.com

We are asking for nothing in return, except your continued prayers, and that you would continue to Love Jesus, and be blessed by His word.

God bless you all on our mailing list. We have people all over the world reading these messages, some in third world countries that write back and thank us for sharing the truth, and saying to them what no one else will. We do not have every answer, Jesus is the answer. We do not pretend to have "arrived," as some would like to think, and use for an excuse to not listen, and stop up their ears to the truth. We only share what we hear from the Lord, and stay before Him with an open heart to hear more of what the Holy Spirit is saying in these days. Again, I do pray you will frequent www.bibleword.com And be blessed by the word here.

In the mighty name of Jesus !

The Sin Unto Death

by: Milton Green

Carnal doctrines and false teachers are leading congregations into a form of godliness. A form of godliness gives congregations a false security and leads them to destruction. They will not receive the discipline and reproof necessary to purify and sanctify their hearts. Their hearts become hardened and the Word can have no place in them.

We are warned that "false prophets.. . false teachers... who privily (not easily discerned) shall bring in damnable heresies, (forms of godiness)... and many shall follow their pernicious (lascivious, sensual) ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you, whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not (God's judgment is on them NOW). For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh.., while they promise them liberty (no judgment or curse will come upon you), they themselves are the servants of corruption (flesh nature)" (2 Pet. 2:1- 3, 18, 19).

These false teachers will lead people to turn away from the Word of God through fleshly desires and turn back to the ways of the world: "For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning" (2 Pet. 2:20).

False teachers, through fleshly desires, will lead congregations from the Word of God back to loving the ways of the world. As they receive a false security and their hearts return to loving the things of the world, their hearts then become hardened to the Word of God. When this happens, the Word cannot sanctify and purify their hearts because they are not led by the Spirit of God. This is how a church falls away from the faith.

II Peter 2:21 says: "For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them."

Since they once knew the ways of righteousness and have now turned away from their first love, they will die in their sins because they have been overcome and captured again by the ways of the world. "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins" (Heb. 10:26). They die in their sins and rebellions.

Since they have put their trust in false teachers and a false security, the Holy Spirit cannot lead them out of darkness. If they had not first known the way of righteousness and then hardened their hearts to God's Word, there would still be an opportunity for them to yet learn God's righteousness. But, having learned God's righteousness and having hardened their hearts to the holy commandment, their hearts have now become too hardened to return to God's Word. They no longer have a repentant heart. They cannot be perfected in love. They have fallen away from the faith. THIS IS THE SIN UNTO DEATH!

"For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, and have tasted the word of God, and the powers of the world to come, if they should fall away, to renew them again unto repentance (because they chose to love the very things which God commanded them to turn from)" (Heb. 6:4-6).

Those who have fallen away are those who have become so hardened to the Word of God they will no longer receive the Word into their hearts. They now love other things more than they love God. This is idolatry.

Listen carefully to the Word: "For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sin, but a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries (as it did the children of Israel). For we know Him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto Me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God. Now the just shall live by faith (he preserves, endures and overcomes): but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him" (Heb. 10:26, 27, 30, 31, 38).

Only the ones who love the Lord with all their hearts will not shrink back. They will receive the mercy and blessings of God. God waits patiently for all others who have these idols to repent and turn to God. If they do not turn, they are destroyed in God's wrath.

Paul said, "What if God, willing to shew His wrath, and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels (children) of wrath fitted to destruction: and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He afore prepared unto glory" (Rom. 9:22, 23).

God endures with much patience as He waits for us to come to the light and be perfected in love. If our hearts are turned toward other things which we love more than God, we will resist His Word and His Spirit and break His laws.

Therefore, His wrath permits the powers of darkness to continue placing more and more bondage in our lives until we are destroyed. The opposite of this is the vessel of mercy who does not shrink back from the Word of God, but walks in faith as he perseveres, endures and overcomes to be perfected in love.

Everyone who shrinks back from God does so cause his heart has turned from God to love other things more than He loves Christ. This, of course, is the falling away. If he does not repent and turn back, he will be destroyed. "For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise But we are not of them who draw back unto perditition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul" (H 10:36, 39).
