Line MUST Be Drawn
At the CROSS? or HELL?
By Jim Searcy
An Expose of Christian Occultism

1 Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the CROSS is to them that perish foolishness;
but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.
2 Pet 2:1 But there were FALSE prophets also among the people,
even as there shall be FALSE teachers among you, who privily shall bring in
even DENYING the Lord that bought them,
and bring upon themselves SWIFT DESTRUCTION.
2 Pet 2:2 And MANY shall FOLLOW their pernicious ways;
by reason of whom the way of TRUTH shall be evil spoken of.
2 Pet 2:3 And through COVETOUSNESS shall they with FEIGNED words
whose judgment NOW of a long time LINGERETH NOT,
and their DAMNATION slumbereth not.
1 Cor 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that
no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:

It is the duty of Love to admonish heretics to PUBLICLY REPENT
of preaching another Gospel.
We must also give warning to those whom they might deceive.
Gal 1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel
unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.
Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren,
MARK them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine
which ye have learned; and avoid them.
Gal 1:9 As we said before, so say I now again,
If any man preach any other gospel unto you
than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

AKA The Jesus Redemption In Hell Other Gospel
AKA The Cross + Hell Redemption Other Gospel

Christians in these days of Strong Delusion should recognize the great falling away from the faith. All need to know why the "Jesus Died Spiritually", or "Jesus Redemption In Hell" heresy is so serious. Sadly, the most common reaction to such truth, or even the questioning or proving of the doctrine, is Don’t Judge, Don’t Cause Divisions, or Don’t Name Names. It is funny how few ever think those are judgmental things to think.

There is a genuine need to briefly address those issues before going on. Otherwise, someone may perhaps never go on to receiving the essential truth for freedom from the devil’s big snare, if one of those three little protectors of the doctrines of devils, are not dispensed right now.

In the first verse of Matthew 7 the Lord tells us "Judge not lest you be judged!" Many seem to forget that just a few verses later the Lord tells us to watch out for false prophets. One MUST use righteous judgment to evaluate whether or not someone is a false prophet, or a false teacher. Few seem to understand that the Lord was clearly telling us NOT to judge hypocritically; but, to judge with righteous judgment. That means we are to have so thoroughly judged ourselves, so thoroughly repented, and found freedom IN Christ from any sin, for which we would presume to judge in another. 1 Cor 2:15 - But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. The truly spiritual man has so judged himself, and found such grace in repentance, that no one can accuse him in TRUTH. Of course such a spiritual man will receive many FALSE accusations, over which the spiritual man will even rejoice.

Jer 9:23-24 Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.

We do NOT judge those outside of the Body of Christ. However, ANY and ALL, who would presume to call themselves Christians, and/or seek fellowship and acceptance within the Body of Christ, come under the Righteous judgment of the Word of God. We do NOT judge those outside of the body. However, those who would present themselves as Christians, especially those who would presume to TEACH God’s people, come under the judgment of conformity to the Word of God. THAT IS THE CHRISTIAN DUTY OF LOVE.

The most frequent charge that the GJiGT receives, in testing for conformity to the Word of God, is unloving and divisive. I Corinthians 13:6,7 says that love rejoices with the truth and always protects. It is very loving to protect someone from a damnable lie that masquerades as the truth. Regarding division, what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? Those who do rejoice at FALSE accusations, most assuredly do appreciate righteous judgment. The GJiGT especially rejoices when someone would call to our attention if the Word of Truth would not be rightly divided. Such genuine love and concern should always be appreciated.

The GJiGT is by no means attacking Charismatics. The GJiGT is responding to heretical attacks upon the body of Christ. All cults cry, "You're attacking us." This simply is not true. The GJiGT is simply testing and proving ALL things for conformity to the More Sure word written in the KJV Holy Bible. Those who proclaim and believe damnable doctrines of demons, had better get used to good Christian folks responding to their attacks upon our faith. It is, not only a good defense of the faith, it is biblical!

Regarding division, if the doctrine divides, then the wise direction should be to check the doctrine, and fix the doctrine. Doctrines that conform to the More Sure word written in the KJV Holy Bible do NOT divide. Doctrines which conform to the More Sure word unite and strengthen the Body of Messiah. What fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? Brethren, it is the heretics and their heretical doctrines which are divisive. We are commanded to mark, such and that means naming names. Rom 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

Some people say that it is wrong to name names. Where do Christians get that idea? That idea is not found in the Bible. Paul named names like Hymenaeus, Philetus, Demas, and Alexander. David named the name of Doeg the Edomite. John named names like Diotrephes. One will generally find that someone wants something to remain hidden when they do not want the names named. That is DARKNESS. God is LIGHT and His children are to be children of LIGHT and not darkness. Not naming names protects the guilty, is NOT love, and violates the command of Rom 16:17.

Do we approach the people one on one first, as instructed in Matthew 18 before writing about their heresies? The GJiGT has a track record of letting the offenders and heretics know first. However, when you drop Kenneth Copeland or Joyce Meyers a note asking them to call you back to discuss their heresies, do not hold your breath as you wait for them to return your call. When you check it out, you will find that confronting heretics with their error, that they do not have ears to hear. That is part of the basic make-up of the heretic. Just as Paul withstood Peter quite publicly, for he was to be blamed, when it comes to the area of damnable heresy, the man of God will do whatever it takes to earnestly contend for THE Faith. The plain simple truth is that even those close to the big time heretics, will be given the cold shoulder when attempting to help the damnable heretic repent of heresy.

Do the heretics bother to consult us before publicly proclaiming a doctrine that is dangerous to my brothers and sisters? Should they, yes and no. The public arena is open to all who would use it. Therefore the charges that the GJiGT is being divisive, unrighteously judgmental, or making unnecessary personal attack, is without any foundation in truth. When heretics seek to traffick in the souls of men by poisoning their minds, not only is the GJiGT free to provide the antidote; but, commanded by the duty of love to do so. It is the duty of love to BOTH the heretic and the people they may harm, knowingly or in ignorance. It is just as biblical as the Apostle Paul dealing with Peter over an issue that involved sound doctrine. Thank God that Paul did have the courage to do it publicly, and that Peter found the grace to repent. That is the difference between Peter and most heretics.

Galatians chapter two gives clear biblical ground for publicly handling doctrinal issues and disputes. By the grace of God, the GJiGT has been called to minister in sound doctrine, even in the time when they shall not endure sound doctrine. The duty of love can do no less than confronting heresy and error in ministry within the Body of Messiah. By the grace of God, the GJiGT will contend for the faith, and fight the good fight of the faith. By the grace of God, the GJiGT will keep on as long as the Lord allows. By the grace of God, the GJiGT will do whatever can be done in order to cut the ground from under those who want an opportunity to shipwreck the most holy faith of the Lord Jesus Christ. By the grace of God, the GJiGT will expose the false apostles, and deceitful workmen. By the grace of God, the GJiGT will be relentless in defense of the truth. When the GJiGT is called demon hunters, or heresy hunters, we just say thank you, and Alleluia Yeshua.

Now, having made that clear, it is time for some PERSONAL Repentance on part of Jim Searcy and the GJiGT. I have Repented before God of EVER having failed to make clear that Yeshua was the SIN-OFFERING rather than that He could be made to be sin. He was the SIN-OFFERING. NEVER was Messiah made to be sin. Jim, and the GJiGT also does NOW REPENT PUBLICALLY AND BEFORE ALL BRETHREN, for ever having failed to make that important distinction absolutely clear. Messiah is the once for all PERFECT SIN-OFFERING. Messiah was NEVER made to be SIN. Messiah was the SIN-OFFERING. NEVER was He anything less than the PERFECT, HOLY, SINLESS, SON OF GOD. I humbly ask your forgiveness for ever having failed to make that ABSOLUTELY clear. I do now understand that failure to make that absolutely clear, could cause brethren to be deceived by the so called Word/Faith movement.

Messiah, who knew no sin, was made to be the SIN-OFFERING for us. That is rightly dividing the word of truth, whenever the Messiah’s work of redemption is discussed. Allowing any opening to think that Messiah could be made to be sin, is unacceptable, and grievous for any minister of the gospel. Faithful ministers of the Word of Truth MUST make that important distinction more clear than what I have on occasion done. I do repent and ask your help, righteous judgment, and correction, if ever the GJiGT would fail to make ABSOLUTELY clear, that Messiah was NOT made to be sin. Messiah was made to be the SIN-OFFERING, the perfect once for all sin-offering.

What is happening in the typical Word/Faith show? Various means are employed to quench, or dull, the self control fruit of the Spirit, regarding the mind, will, and emotions. The majority of physical illness, and the vast majority of mental illness, is the result of demonic spirits of infirmity. We all should understand that we are commanded to TEST the spirits to see if they are of God. Manifestations of Jannes & Jambres, can appear as healing and other signs and wonders. We all should understand that counterfeit signs and wonders may occur to open up the souls of those attending the show, to receive false doctrine, by the supposed confirming signs. NEVER BELIEVE THE DEVIL'S MOST IMPORTANT LIE. If you are not familiar with the Devil's Most Important Lie: http://www.moresureword.com/devilslie.htm

The vast majority of physical and mental infirmity is demonic. Did you ever wonder why no preacher or teacher ever tells you what the Word of God says Paul's thorn in the flesh was? We should KNOW Paul's thorn in the flesh was a demon. The Word of God in 2 Cor 12:7 tells you what Paul's thorn in his flesh was, with such explicit certainty, that there is only ONE POSSIBLE thing that Paul's thorn in the flesh could be, according to the Word of God. You have heard every explanation for what Paul's thorn in the flesh was EXCEPT what the Word of God tells you it was. When you read it, it may still seem hard to believe. So here is some help.

Jim, the elder, wrote this sentence.

That sentence is grammatically correct, whether you believe Jim is an elder or not. That sentence would NOT be correct without those commas. Those commas have a purpose. Those commas, link. Those commas tell you that "Jim" is "the elder," and "the elder" is "Jim." Now, here is another hint for you Greek scholars, Paul's thorn in the flesh, in Greek is an Angelos Satanas.

Now read the verse of scripture again, and KNOW according to the Word of God, what Paul's thorn in the flesh was. All should KNOW ACCORDING to the Word of God, and not according to what you heard so and so preacher, or so and so common tater say. Paul's thorn in the flesh, ACCORDING TO THE WORD OF GOD, was the messenger of Satan, a demon. The word of God is VERY EXPLICIT on this - 2 Cor 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a THORN IN THE FLESH, THE MESSENGER OF SATAN to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

Yes, the Greek for Paul's thorn in the flesh, is Angelos Satanas. Paul sought the Lord 3 times for deliverance from that demon in his flesh. The Lord told him NO, that His grace would be sufficient. Why? For us. Yes, it was for us that Paul did carry that load of a demon in his flesh throughout his whole ministry. Why? So that we would know that if Paul could have a demon in his flesh, then why should we EVER think that we could not? Paul carried it for us who will have to deal with demonic manifestations like no people who ever lived. Spirit filled Christians are not exempt from having demons in them, they are the high priority targets.

Brethren, the war on the saints is REAL. Having been involved in deliverance ministry for over 25 years, I simply tell you that if Jesus said there are demons, you better believe the Word of God, and not follow the fuds, thuds, and duds to hell.

Tremendous ground for demonic entry is gained through receiving heresy regarding the doctrine of Christ, particularly so, as it relates to the Blood Atonement. The feel good tickling demonic spirits gain entry to the mind and bodies of those attending the shows. The people are made to FEEL hyper spiritual. Many become empowered by counterfeit spirits which they sincerely believe is the Holy Spirit, thereby getting their consciences seared with a hot iron. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was. 2 Tim 3:8-9 which, by the way. is a specific warning for THIS Last Days time frame, NOW.

Because of the supposed confirming signs of Jannes and Jambres, sincere, faithful people can easily allow demon spirits to gain access to themselves and hundreds of others attending the show. We do mourn over how many today, do give ground allowing demon spirits to enter them by receiving heresy related to the Blood Atonement of Messiah on the Cross.

Do NOT TAKE offense. If one has been overtaken by the "Jesus Died Spiritually" HERESY, the right thing is NOT to take offense. The right thing is to search the scriptures to see what God says is the truth, according to the MORE SURE word that is written, in the KJV Holy Bible. The right thing, is to receive and acknowledge the truth. Only by receiving and acknowledging the truth can one be set free from any snare of the devil that has overtaken us.

According to the Scriptures, heresy becomes damnable heresy when the heresy regards the Person and Finished Redemption work of the Son of God. Damnable Heresy is any doctrine or teaching, which does not remain true to the Doctrine of Christ, as set forth in the Word of God. We should KNOW the difference between Heresy and Damnable Heresy. You may find that topic explaining the difference between Heresy and Damnable Heresy at: http://www.moresureword.com/Heresy.htm

It is amazing how many people have been overtaken by the heresies allowed to be untested and unchecked in the so called Word/Faith movement. The main reason they have been overtaken, and ensnared, is that they have NEVER read the KJV Holy Bible the way God said to read it. The next most common reason is they believe it is acting in Christian love to forbear the heresy for the sake of unity. Most have NEVER even ONE TIME read the KJV Holy Bible precept upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line, every word in order straight through from Gen 1:1-Rev 22:21. That is why the false teachers, of whom Yeshua warned us, find it so easy to deceive and destroy the people of God.

Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

The answer is NO – absolutely and unequivocally NO. Jesus did NOT actually become "sin" at Calvary. Jesus died a physical death on the Cross. Jesus did NOT experience spiritual death in HELL. Jesus did NOT go to HELL. The teachers of the "Jesus Died Spiritually" heresy insist that He did. This is damnable HERESY, to say Jesus Died Spiritually rather than physically. It is heresy to believe that Jesus actually became sin, or that anything sinful was ever found in the PERFECT Spotless Lamb of God, regardless of how short the time. Jesus Christ, the SAME, yesterday, today, and forever, PERFECT, HOLY, God the Son, The I AM who spoke to Moses, The Lamb of God Without Spot, Without Blemish.

The Word of God is Abundantly clear on this. This occult heresy of E W Kenyon, which forms the basis of so much perverse doctrine, in the great falling away from THE Faith, in these last days of Strong Delusion, should be clearly understood. The Lord Jesus Christ died a physical death on the Cross of Calvary, as the substitutionary SIN-OFFERING required to redeem Sinners. The Son of God was manifested to destroy the works of the devil.

The "Jesus Died Spiritually" HERESY, that He actually became sin, must be exposed as the damnable heresy that it is. We are redeemed, and we are sanctified, by faith in His PERFECT, substitution, sacrificial, PHYSICAL, death. Heb 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

The Bible clearly shows that Jesus was SINLESS. Yeshua is the once for all Sin-offering, holy, and pure, just as the Old Testament type foreshadowed. Indeed, The Lord Jesus Christ did fulfill this most important part of the Law. WHAT LAW? Glad you asked. The LAW OF SIN AND DEATH. It was just as Abraham had prophesied in Gen 22:8. And Abraham said, My son, God will provide Himself a lamb for a burnt offering: INDEED GOD DID PROVIDE HIMSELF, GOD THE SON, AS THE PERFECT, SINLESS, SPOTLESS, LAMB OF GOD, TO PROVIDE THE BLESSED HOPE OF FREEDOM FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.

Jesus did NOT go to HELL for 3 days. He went to paradise. The souls of those who died before the Lamb of God was sacrificed on Calvary’s Cross, on Wednesday, Nissan 14, 30 AD, went to one of two places. They either went to paradise or to hell. They did not go, and could not go, to what we know as the third heaven, the place of God’s throne, where Yeshua is now seated at the Father’s right hand. No man could go into the presence of the HOLY God, until that PERFECT sacrifice and atonement was made on Wednesday, Nissan 14, 30AD.

On the Cross, outside the walls of Jerusalem, on that Wednesday, is where and when Messiah our Passover, the Lamb of God, was sacrificed as the once for all SIN-OFFERING. On that Wednesday, Yeshua The Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, said, IT IS FINISHED. On the cross He told the repentant thief who died with Him, THIS DAY, TODAY, thou shalt be with me in paradise. Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.

At his death, Jesus went to be with the saints like Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, and Elijah in paradise. He would from paradise lead the saints from paradise to the presence of His heavenly Father. From the Cross that Wednesday, till he arose on Saturday, the Lord of Sabbath was NOT with Satan and the demonic host in hell. As He died, The Messiah said, "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit" (Luke 23:46). The Lord Jesus Christ redeemed sinners on the Cross of Calvary. Jesus did NOT accomplish the redemption of sinners in Hell. 1 Cor 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. The SINLESS Son of God did NOT become unregenerate and lost at Calvary. That is damnable HERESY.

Did the blood of Jesus atone for sin? YES, absolutely and unequivocally, YES. This is the central purpose for the sacrificial shedding of blood in Scripture. Without the shedding of blood there is NO remission for sin. Right here, one who knows the Word of God, should recognize the "Jesus Died Spiritually" teaching to be totally contradicting the Word of God. Such Jesus Died Spiritually, or Jesus Born-Again in Hell, of Jesus Completing Redemption in Hell, teaching is in agreement with antichrist religious cults, and not in agreement with the Word of God. Those in the Word/Faith movement who have taught this heresy MUST be named. Some of the more prominent names in this form of occultism, will be named when this topic gets published on the GJiGT web site. There is at least one prominent professor of this damnable heresy, who has stopped the strong profession of this heresy. However, he gives no hint of repentance of having professed the heresy. He seems simply to consider the doctrine may have a negative effect on the attendance at his crusades.

One of the leading proponents of this heresy states: "When his blood poured out, IT DID NOT ATONE, it did away with the handwriting of the ordinances that were against us" (Col. 2:14). He then adds that Jesus redeemed man, not on the cross, but in Hell.

Brethren, we should KNOW that the handwriting and ordinances nailed to the cross, were the rabbinic additions to the Scriptures. These traditions and doctrines of religious men, ADDING to the Scriptures, were what was nailed to the cross. Though these ordinances were HANDWRITTEN, with much less care than the scriptures, it is what is often referred to as the ORAL LAW. The oral law was the additions and traditions of men, which had made the ROYAL LAW OF GOD, the Royal Law of Love, Life, and Liberty, of none effect. Those ordinances, NOT the Royal Law, were nailed to the CROSS with Messiah at the CROSS, and total defeat of the host of hell was accomplished on Wednesday, Nissan 14, 30 AD. The confirmation of the Victory was made 3 days later on SABBATH, yes on the 7th Day, Saturday, Nissan 17, 30 AD. By the time it was dark on Saturday evening, Nissan 17, 30 AD, the eternal victory won on the CROSS by the Lord Jesus Christ, was confirmed by His RESURRECTION.

Every Christian should KNOW that one of the central doctrines of antichrist religious cult teaching is a denial of the blood atonement of Jesus Christ. Any charismatic minister, who says that the blood of Jesus did not accomplish the atonement, is NOT a Christian. Any minister which says that there MUST be additional work ADDED to the Finished work on the Cross, where the Blood of the Lamb of God was shed, is NOT a Christian minister. Such ministers need to be Born-Again, or born again AGAIN. Without repentance, after the second admonition, such ministers should be rejected as damnable heretics. Christians should show such heretic ministers the door, or the dust being shaken from the Christian’s feet.

It is amazing today, how many so-called Christian ministers destroy the power of the Blood of Yeshua, to cleanse from sin, by teaching that Jesus became an unholy sacrifice on the cross. What is even more amazing, is that Christians could be so biblically ignorant and dumbfounded to tolerate this, regardless of signs and wonders, presumed to be confirming the teachings. There are many Christians who bid them God speed, and even financially support such heresy. Ground to demonic spirits is given by receiving such heresy. Sadly, the antichrist religious spirit demons, tied to such heresy, with or without signs and wonders, are making many feel good on a religious path to HELL.

There is an important distinction about the cross that every Christian should understand. Jesus did NOT accomplish a total identification with sinners on the cross. Yeshua accomplished the propitiation, the substitution sacrifice, the necessary required payment to redeem sinners. This distinction is important. The "Jesus Died Spiritually" ministers confuse the identification of Jesus with the human race at His birth, with His substitution for sinners on the cross. If He became literal "sin" and was lost and unregenerate at Calvary, then He would have been an unacceptable offering to the HOLY God for the sins of others. However, if He remained pure and holy, as the Scriptures show, then God could accept His sacrifice, as a substitute on the behalf of sinners.

Only in this way could He fulfill the Old Testament type, whereby the animal for the SIN-OFFERING had to be spotless and without blemish. Moreover, the SIN-OFFERING was regarded as MOST HOLY even after its death.

Why should all believers be concerned about whether Jesus did or did not die spiritually? Because the Bible shows that our eternal salvation rests upon what we each personally believe about the blood atonement of Jesus Christ! It is here, at the CROSS, not in the pit of Hell, that your salvation either stands or falls.

Those who currently embrace such false doctrine concerning the Atonement are guilty of heresy of the most serious kind. Its seriousness stems from the fact that if one believes this perverted doctrine, he will find that in the end, he has been robbed of the blood atonement on his behalf. It should be no wonder that pretended signs and wonders follow such ministers of damnable heresy. The Bible is emphatic on this matter. A sinner cannot redeem another sinner, especially if both are lost! One would think that this fact is too obvious to need any explanation.

The guilty can only be redeemed by someone who is guiltless, and remains so both during and after the work of redemption. In such a case, the guiltless individual could then act as a substitute. Only then, could suffering the punishment, for which the guilty party is liable, be acceptable. He could not do so, however, if he himself had become guilty by identifying with sin as the "Jesus Died Spiritually" doctrine contends.

In this case, the guiltless, who had become guilty by identification with sin, could no longer act as an acceptable substitute. The main thrust of the entire Old Testament sacrificial system, is to show that the Messiah was a guiltless, spotless, SINLESS Substitute. Yeshua PERFECTLY fulfilled the Old Testament type, remained pure and holy, both on the cross, and after His death.

The Scriptures, are EXPLICIT that any doctrine or teaching, which does not remain true and conformed to the Doctrine of Christ, ESPECIALLY AS IT RELATES TO THE PERSON AND FINISHED WORK OF MESSIAH ON THE CROSS is Damnable Heresy. 2 John 7-11 Speaks STRONG and directly to the issue at hand, in these last days of Strong Delusion when they will NOT endure sound doctrine:

For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.

Brethren, we are not even to say God Bless You, to the damnable heretic. We are to know that those who deviate from the biblical teaching concerning the Person and FINISHED Work of The Lord Jesus Christ, have departed from the truth, and are designated as "deceivers." This is such a serious offense to God, that we are warned to avoid these individuals, because such deceivers have the spirit of antichrist.

Those who ignore this solemn warning do so to their own peril. Because such deceivers are antichrist, delude souls, and undermine the glory and kingdom of the Lord Jesus Christ, we do not even to say God Bless You, to them. Any who did not profess and preach the doctrine of Christ, respecting Him as the Son of God, and salvation by Him through His perfect atonement Blood Sacrifice on the CROSS, are not to be greeted. We are forbidden to give them the greeting of bye-bye, farewell, goodbye, or pleasant journey. Even greeting such enemies of the Cross of Christ, can make one a partaker with them of their evil. This may easily give ground to demonic spirits. Of course that is not nice, that is the Word of God.

The more deceivers and deceits abound, the more watchful the disciples must be. The way to gain the full reward is, to abide true to Christ, constant and steadily, enduring to the end. Firm cleaving to Christian truth unites us to Christ, and thereby to the Father also; for they are one. We are commanded to disregard such as abide not in the doctrine of Christ. Yet in obeying this command, we must show kindness and a good spirit to those who differ from us in lesser matters, but hold FIRMLY the all-important doctrines of Christ's person, atonement, and holy salvation.

The word of God in 2 John 7-11 is not simply to be limited to a test of whether or not one believes in the incarnation of Christ. It applies to the fullness of the entire Doctrine of Christ. The test for belief in the incarnation is found in 2 John 7 and also 1 John 4:1, whereas the full Doctrine of Christ test is in view in verses 9-11.

The Apostles all did earnestly contend with the Synagogue of Satan. There were first century synagogues that would proclaim that Yeshua was Messiah, and at the same time also DENY that He was God the Son, in the flesh, God the Creator, the I AM, incarnate, in Jesus. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God (vs.9). The Doctrine of Christ involves everything concerning Yeshua THE Messiah, as contained in the Word of God: the Old Testament prophecies; His incarnation; virgin birth; sinless life; deity; substitutionary blood atonement; resurrection; ascension; the Second Coming, and so on. MOST SPECIFICALLY, AND IMPORTANTLY, THE DOCTRINE OF CHRIST CONCERNS THE PERSON AND WORK OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST. THAT HE IS GOD, THE I AM WHO SPOKE TO MOSES, BOTH CREATOR AND REDEEMER, AND THAT ONLY HIS SINLESS PERFECT SUBSTITUTION SACRIFICE, CAN GIVE ANYONE THE BLESSED HOPE OF FREEDOM FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH.

It should be understood, from the outset, that the "Jesus Died Spiritually," or "Jesus Completed Redemption in Hell" supporters do NOT adhere to the scriptural Doctrine of Christ. Such have grossly perverted the Doctrine of Christ. They deny the Doctrine of Christ with regard to His perfect blood atonement. They deny the Doctrine of Christ with regard to the SINLESSNESS and PERFECT ETERNAL HOLINESS of the Son of God, during the period from of the cross until His resurrection.

The seriousness of their departure from the biblical Doctrine of Christ, is seen in the fact that the "Jesus Died Spiritually" Doctrine portrays Jesus as unregenerate on the cross and in Hell. They profess that He was born again in Hell. They profess NOT the CROSS; but, Hell, being where the Redeemer accomplished His Work of Redemption. Thus they become enemies of the Cross of Christ.

1 Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

The Scriptures, however, prove that Jesus Christ was always sinless and holy, fulfilling the Old Testament type, and that He completed the work of redemption on the cross. On the cross He declared, "It is finished," and at death He confessed that He was going to His heavenly Father, not to Satan in the Pit, saying "Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit."

We should KNOW that the false "Jesus Died Spiritually" Doctrine is plainly condemned by the Word of God. Jesus clearly stated that His work of redemption was FINISHED on the CROSS. However, the spiritual death heretics boldly contradict Him, by telling us that the redemptive work was not finished then; but, was only beginning, inasmuch as it was to be completed in Hell.

These heretic false teachers begin, not with the Word of God, as a basis for their teachings, but with their erroneous doctrine. Then they leapfrog, with their here a little there a little, and totally depart from the precept upon precept, and line upon line understanding of faithful teachers. They will jump through the Bible searching for some alleged "proof texts" in an attempt to find support for their perverse doctrine.

There are several MOST SERIOUS warnings in addition to the warning in 2 John 7-11 concerning those who pervert the Doctrine of Christ. The Apostle Peter warns of those who are "unlearned and unstable," and, as a consequence, wrest, or twist, and distort the Scriptures unto their own destruction (2 Peter 3:16). The Apostle Paul speaks of those who in the latter days "...shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and the doctrines of demons" (I Timothy 4:1). To be sure, such are spiritual with religious counterfeit spirits. To be sure, such FEEL very spiritual, and may even witness some counterfeit signs and wonders. However, they have departed from THE Faith.

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. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 2 Pet 2:1-2

The warning is clear. False teachers will arise who craftily introduce heresies that deny the scriptural view of the Lord. This is precisely what the "Jesus Died Spiritually" teachers are doing in their denial of Christ's sinlessness on the cross, and by their perversion of the blood atonement. Moreover, it is predicted that many will believe these errors and follow them, just as it is happening today!

The "Jesus Died Spiritually" errors are based upon their contention that Jesus literally became "sin" with mankind's sinfulness and died spiritually. However, the Word of God clearly affirms that Jesus remained pure and holy, both on the cross and in His death.

Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: I Pet 1:18-19

If people had read the Scriptures, even one time as God told us, precept upon precept, line upon line, Gen 1:1-Rev 22:21, these false teachers, and their heresies, could easily be seen. Otherwise these false teachers and their heresies can easily overtake anyone. The Old Testament sacrifices, especially the SIN-OFFERING, descriptions clearly show the error of the Jesus Died Spiritually heresy. The heretics contend that Jesus actually became "sin."

Following the Old Testament type, Jesus did NOT become "sin"; rather, He was the SIN-OFFERING. The SIN-OFFERING was MOST HOLY to God.

Jesus DID NOT literally become sin as the heretical doctrine teaches. The Old Testament animal type, which was to die as a substitute for the sinner, MUST be without spot or blemish. There are FIFTY verses from Exodus through Second Peter which tell us, without question, that the SIN-OFFERING MUST be without spot, without blemish. This MOST ESSENTIAL requirement of the SIN-OFFERING was for the purpose of teaching Israel, and the Church, the lesson, pointing to the Perfect Sacrifice of Messiah. The SIN-OFFERINGS which pointed to what the Lamb of God would accomplish on the Cross, MUST be without spot, without blemish, perfect, and would be MOST HOLY before and after its death.

This FACT mentioned in FIFTY verses of scripture, both old and new testament, seems unknown to the "Jesus Died Spiritually" heretics. It is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL that a substitute, which would be acceptable to the Holy God, MUST be holy and guiltless itself, without spot, without blemish, perfect, in order to bear the punishment for the guilt of the sinners. Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

This truth was ritually depicted in the Old Testament requirement that the animal substitute must be without spot or blemish; this fact was actually realized in Jesus, the Lamb of God, who"...offered himself without spot to God..."

When the "Jesus Died Spiritually" teachers insist that Jesus literally became sin, that He had to be born again, they expose the great lie and flaw in their heretical doctrine. The lie comes from their apparent ignorance of the nature of the Old Testament sacrifices, especially the SIN-OFFERING. The Scriptures clearly show, the sin-offering at no point became an unholy sacrifice, either before, or after, its death. This fact and truth is diametrically opposed to the "Jesus Died Spiritually" Doctrine which contends that Jesus actually became "sin" by taking upon Himself Satan's evil nature, and became an unholy sacrifice consigned to Hell for 3 days.

Lev 6:25-29 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the SIN-OFFERING: In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the SIN-OFFERING be killed before the LORD: it is MOST HOLY. The priest that offereth it for sin shall eat it: in the holy place shall it be eaten, in the court of the tabernacle of the congregation. Whatsoever shall touch the flesh thereof shall be HOLY: and when there is sprinkled of the blood thereof upon any garment, thou shalt wash that whereon it was sprinkled in the HOLY place. But the earthen vessel wherein it is sodden shall be broken: and if it be sodden in a brazen pot, it shall be both scoured, and rinsed in water. All the males among the priests shall eat thereof: it is MOST HOLY.

We are clearly told that the sin-offering was MOST HOLY to God both before and after its death. In fact, even after its death in substitution for the sinner, it remained MOST HOLY. Only the anointed priest could touch it, and eat it. The priest could not touch or eat anything unclean. The SIN-OFFERING was to be eaten in the Holy Place of the Tabernacle. Also, anything or anyone that touched the sin-offering after it had been sacrificed, also became HOLY!

This fact alone, is evidence of the sacredness of the sin-offering in God's sight, for even after its death it remained most holy to Him. The "Jesus Died Spiritually" teaching attempts to make Jesus unholy, and unregenerate. It is heretically FALSE to teach that Jesus became sin, with man's sinfulness, and had to be born again. He was a Sin-offering, not sin, and was, therefore, holy on the cross and after His death in fulfillment of the Old Testament type. There is NO teaching in the Holy Bible that the SIN-OFFERING was anything other than holy unto God. The Old Testament animal sacrifices pointed to the MOST HOLY Lamb of God, Messiah, who never was, nor could be anything other than PERFECT, and HOLY. The Word of God states clearly that the sin-offering, a type of The Lamb of God, was most holy to God in its death.

The heresy of the "Jesus Died Spiritually" Doctrine teaches exactly opposite what the Holy Bible teaches. Messiah, the Lamb of God, DID NOT became sin, and DID NOT become unholy. Many may say, then explain 2 Cor 5:21? And that we MUST and will not only PROVE it was FINISHED at the CROSS, but that Yeshua NEVER did sin, NEVER was made to be sin, but was the Once For All SIN-OFFERING, always HOLY and without spot or blemish. Lord willing that will be proved certainly, clearly, decidedly, definitely, indisputably, plainly, positively, undeniably, unequivocally, and unquestionably.

It is a sad sign of the times how few understand the Old Testament or Hebrew term for "sin" AND "sin-offering" is the SAME Word chatta’ah H2403. We find the word 294 times, of which 118 times it means, SIN-OFFERING, and 176 times, SIN. It is the SAME word. The professors of the "Jesus Died Spiritually" heresy are unaware of the fact that these two English terms are one and the same term in the Hebrew language! Since all writers of scripture were Hebrews except Luke, who was a proselyte Jew, the same word, with the same understanding how it applied to both sin and the sin-offering, was the SAME in Greek as well.

The term translated as "sin-offering" and "sin" is one and the same in Hebrew. It was the context in which the term was used, which expressed whether one was speaking about the sin-offering or of sin. Everyone should understand that things taken out of context often become pretexts for false doctrine. If the context concerned the subject of sacrifices, then the "sin-offering" was understood to be the meaning of the Hebrew term chatta'ah. If sin itself was under discussion, then the same term, chatta'ah could be used; but, then with the obvious meaning of "sin," not the sin-offering. Messiah, the Lamb of God, was the spotless perfect SIN-OFFERING. Messiah never sinned, nor was He ever Sin. Jesus Christ the SAME, yesterday, today and forever, the I AM, perfect, spotless, and with out blemish, the once for ALL SIN-OFFERING. That is the REAL Messiah.

2 Cor 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him. Messiah is the SIN-OFFERING. Messiah is NOT sin.

The term chatta'ah is used for sin itself on several occasions; however, chatta’ah is also used over 100 times for the SIN-OFFERING. As an Israelite, the Apostle Paul clearly, and without any doubt, had the sin-offering in view in 2 Corinthians 5:21. The plain simple fact is that the term for sin and the sin-offering is identical in Hebrew AND Greek. The Apostle simply follows the customary practice of the Jewish translators when rendering Hebrew into Greek.

All ancient Jewish translators into Greek, even the corrupt Jewish Septuagint translators, out of Alexandria, used the Greek term for "sin," hamartia, to translate the Hebrew term for the SIN-OFFERING. Yes, the same Greek word, hamartia, is even used in the Septuagint, for SIN-OFFERING.

In the Greek translations of the following verses, and we have access to many Greek translations, ALL of them use the SAME Greek word, hamartia, in these verses:

Lev 5:11 But if he be not able to bring two turtledoves, or two young pigeons, then he that sinned shall bring for his offering the tenth part of an ephah of fine flour for a SIN-OFFERING (hamartia); he shall put no oil upon it, neither shall he put any frankincense thereon: for it is a SIN-OFFERING. (hamartia)
Lev 6:25 Speak unto Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the SIN-OFFERING (hamartia): In the place where the burnt offering is killed shall the SIN-OFFERING (hamartia) be killed before the LORD: it is MOST HOLY.
2 Cor 5:21 For he hath made him to be sin (hamartia) for us, who knew no sin (hamartia); that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

No Jewish believer in Messiah, unlike the heretics, would have confused "sin" with the "sin-offering," even though they are expressed by the same term in Hebrew. This is also true with regard to the terms trespass and trespass-offering.

The term "curse" (Gal. 3:10-13) is also to be understood in this sense. Death is the curse of the Law of sin and death. (Deu 28 & Eze 18). Indeed Messiah was made a "curse" in the sense that He suffered the curse of the Law, (death), on our behalf. However, He was not cursed as sin, as the heretics blatantly blaspheme. Yes, it is BLASPHEMY this teaching of Christian occult followers of metaphysicist E W Kenyon. And yes, we will name the names of the prominent leaders in this heretical and blasphemous teaching, which gets their victims full of religious spirit tickling demons, which they sadly believe is the Holy Spirit.

There are other Hebrew words like asham, H817, closely associated with chatta’ah like "iniquity"; "transgression"; "rebellion," and so on. However, the basic term, was chatta'ah, meaning sin OR sin-offering.

1 Cor 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: (SUCH MUST BE SPEAKING BY ANOTHER SPIRIT)
Isa 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

In addition to the Septuagint translators using the Greek term for "sin" to translate the Hebrew term for "sin-offering," this usage is also found in the New Testament in Hebrews. This is evident from Heb 10:6 where we read: "In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin..." Here again only the Greek term (hamartia) for "sin" occurs in the Greek New Testament, but it is used in the sense of "sin-offering." The translators of the English version are aware of the fact, inasmuch as they translate the term "sin" as meaning "sin-offering." This is evident in that they supply, in Italics, the word "sacrifices," signifying that the term "sin" (hamartia) is being used in Heb 10:6 to express the sacrifice for sin (hamartia) (sin-offering) and not the actual sin itself.

This is in harmony both with the context in which burnt-offerings are mentioned, and with common Hebrew. The Apostle Paul here, as he does clearly, definitely, and certainly, in 2 Corinthians 5:21, use the term "sin" (hamartia) in the sense of the "sin-offering."

It is the same as the Apostle Paul states in I Corinthians 1:30 that Christ was made, not sin, but "righteousness" unto us in a passage where he deals with the cross.

1 Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

1 Cor 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:
Since Paul was not double minded, he obviously would not contradict himself. Therefore 2 Corinthians 5:21 should be rightly divided and understood according to Hebrew AND Greek usage as "sin-offering." The same Greek word (hamartia) is used for sin or SIN-OFFERING. For he hath made him a sin-offering (hamartia) for us, who knew no sin (hamartia); that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

The sin-offering did not typify something sinful at death to the Jews, as the "Jesus Died Spiritually" ministers depict Christ. Rather Christ was typified by the SIN-OFFERING being without spot or blemish, most holy, and perfect, the once for all sinless sacrifice for sin. This is precisely the New Testament view concerning the death of Jesus Christ Who "...offered himself without spot to God..."

Heb 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

1 Pet 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

The contradiction between God's Word and man's heretical theories, even if the teacher tells us it is a high revelation from God, should be evident to all. Yes, it should be evident even in the face of prosperity, and supposed confirming signs, wonders, and feel good goose bumps. Regardless of the signs which make up a wonderful show, we should still  see what is so perverse and wrong with some of their performances, by the FALSE doctrine. There is an obvious departure from the Doctrine of Christ. It is not just the blasphemous heresies. Receiving such blasphemous heresy gives much ground to demon spirits. One should also see why we MUST question regarding the source of the empowerment of the prosperity, signs, and wonders. Who is REALLY being glorified? Who is really doing the empowering? We should see the strong possibility of the operation of Jannes and Jambres in the signs and wonders, in the performances of some of these ministers.

Mark 8:36-37 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

It is important we all begin to see what is so perverse, and advantageous to demons, and dangerous to believers, with such performers and their services. Tremendous ground for demonic counterfeit spirit operation is given by anyone receiving such blaphemous heresies. At the very least, believers should begin to see why the empowerment of the prosperity, signs, wonders, and event the feel good goose bumps, MUST BE TESTED and PROVED. Who is REALLY being glorified? Who REALLY is empowering the Ken Copeland, Benny Hinn, and TBN shows?

It really is about spiritual warfare. Antichrist spirits deny the FINISHED work of the PERFECT sin-offering of Messiah on the CROSS. Demonic ground is gained by any heresy which would teach error regarding the Power of the Blood of Messiah. These are dangerous erroneous teachings saying Jesus went to Hell, and not to Heaven when He died, and that He redeemed sinners while in the Pit, by being made sin, rather than being the perfect holy sin-offering.

Enemies of cross have all concocted their own imaginary "War-in-Hell" stories, invariably based upon Colossians 2:15. The amazing thing about the War-In-Hell story is that there is not one shred of evidence in the Bible for such a fictional account, even in the passage in Colossians to which they all refer!

Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

From this one verse, which refers to the victory of Jesus being accomplished on the cross, and not in Hell, the "War-in-Hell" story was invented. These storytellers usually relate this fantasy with great EMOTION. That is part of the key to understanding what is happening. It may even ring a bell or two, related to the Mel Gibson Passion, EMOTION movie. The War-in-Hell narrators are in general agreement on its major aspects. The details seem to vary from one storyteller to another. Some seem almost to compete with others in the dramatics of the emotional scenes which supposedly took place in the Pit.

It is easy to see why this is the case. There is no basis in Scripture for their story. Without any scripture basis, and since the War-in-Hell story has been passed along largely by word of mouth, the storytellers are free to let their imaginations be as wild as they want to be. Visualization and powers of positive cofession seem to be central to the shows.

Probably all have heard a typical War-in-Hell story. In case there is someone who has never heard one, there will be one at the end of this expose. There you may see a typical short version of one, pieced together from writings and recordings of the redemption from hell, enemies of the cross.

Is their War-in-Hell story what happened from the cross to the throne? Is this what lies hidden beneath the surface of Colossians 2:15? Are you wondering why you have never read such an amazing account in the pages of your Bible? You should not wonder. That story is fiction from the beginning to end. It has its origin, not in the Bible, but in the fertile imagination of the deluded, deceived, teachers of a blasphemous heresy.

The facts, are quite simply stated in Colossians 2:15. The Apostle Paul simply states that the work of redemption was accomplished on the cross, not through some imaginary War-in-Hell piece of fiction. Messiah was victorious as the once for all PERFECT sin-offering. By His sacrificial physical death on the cross, Messiah spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them IN IT.

Col 2:14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;
Col 2:15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

In verse 15 we are informed that it was also on the cross, not three days later in the Pit of Hell, that Jesus triumphed over the principalities and powers of Satan's kingdom. This is seen in the Apostle's words "triumphing over them IN IT" (or by it). The words "in it" obviously refer to His cross in verse 14.

When one considers what sinners are, it becomes obvious why Jesus was not identified with sinners, becoming one in nature with them, on the cross. All men are sinful by nature. All men are said to be"...by nature the children of wrath..." (Eph. 2:3; Rom. 3:9-23; Rom 5:12.) However, Jesus, in His human nature, was holy. His birth did not come through Joseph, but was supernaturally wrought by the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:33-35). All men are sinful in their thoughts, words, and in deeds (Gen. 6:5; Ps. 14; Rom. 1-3). However, Jesus lived without the commission of any act of sin (Heb. 4:15). Jesus, therefore, lacks the qualifications to star as the sacrifice for the Redemption by War-In-Hell enemies of the cross. They have a different Jesus and a different gospel. The REAL Jesus, was, and IS, the sinless Son of God! Their substitute is precisely that, a substitute, who is not the Jesus of the Bible.

Some of these story tellers might say, "Well, Jesus did not personally sin; he was made to be sin by God. He took upon himself the sinfulness of the human race and became evil in nature with Satan's nature." This is impossible because sin is a personal act of disobedience to the will of God. Jesus never once disobeyed His Father, and most certainly not on the cross, for here He was in God's perfect will (John 3:16). In His nature, He was sinless. It would seem that only a demon could make someone think to actually charge the heavenly Father with the act of making His Son to be "sin."

1 Cor 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:

James 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: We know that is true. Then how could God the Father conceivably be charged with making His sinless Son to become actual sin?

Sin is an act, whether in deed, word, or thought, which one must personally commit. This rules out all possibility that Jesus could be made "sin." He was a holy "sin-offering" unto God just as the Old Testament type depicted. Jesus Christ was without sin (John 8:46; Heb. 4:14-15). Sadly, the heretics completely ignore this fact.

Thus, through faith in Jesus Christ, by His blood atonement, God counts us as righteous, by imputing His righteousness to us. He charges Christ's righteousness to our account. He then treats us as if we had fulfilled His Law (Rom.8:4). Our faith is counted unto us for righteousness which we do not inherently possess in ourselves. He has become our righteousness (I Corinthians 1:30;cf. Phil.3:9; Rom.3:10, 21-22).

In the Torah we are taught that when sin-offering is offered, the sinner first laid hands upon the animal to symbolize the transference of the liability for punishment, for the guilt of his sin, upon his innocent substitute. This was not a moral transfer of the actual sin or guilt. It was a legal transaction, in which the substitute became liable for the punishment of the guilty party. We can see how this could work in traffic court today. An innocent person may assume legal guilt and liability for punishment, for a friend who has violated some traffic law, and is unable to pay his own fine. The person, who is innocent himself, becomes his substitute and suffers the penalty in his place. The substitute does not become actually guilty; he merely assumes the legal liability for the punishment of the guilty party.

This is the LEGAL way in which the punishment for our guilt was laid upon Christ, our sin-offering and substitute. Isaiah really spells all of this out in chapter 53. All we like sheep have gone astray...and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (v 6) In verse 11 God speaks of Him, as "My righteous servant," Who would bear the punishment for our iniquities.

The biblical doctrine of imputation means that the punishment for our guilt, was imputed to Christ on the cross; and, conversely, His righteousness is imputed to us, upon the exercise of faith in Him, and His substitutionary death. Imputation signifies something which is reckoned, charged, or placed to someone's account.

The biblical term for "righteousness" does not mean to make righteous, neither was Jesus actually made sin. The term "righteous" means, with respect to God, that He IS righteous. It is always a declarative statement of the fact that He is righteous in nature. God cannot be made righteous, God IS righteous. And in reference to the believer, it means that he is counted as righteous, by virtue of having Christ's righteousness imputed, or charged to him. God puts true righteousness in our account through our faith in Messiah.

It is exactly the same, how His righteousness is imputed to us legally, so the liability for the punishment of our guilt, was legally imputed to Him. He bore the liability for the punishment for our sin. Just as Isaiah wrote that "...the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all..." Isaiah 53:6. As an innocent substitute, He became our sin-offering, which remained most holy unto God, even in death.

The Jesus Died Spiritually teachers teach of a different "Jesus", which became actual "sin" with the world's sinfulness. The imputation of the punishment for the guilt of our sins, has reference only to the legal liabilities, which Christ assumed, on our behalf. Imputation does not imply a transference to Him, of our actual sins, whereby He became sinful, and had to be born again. Our sins, in terms of their moral character, were our own. Our sins could not, by imputation, become someone else's. However, the legal liability of our sins, could be imputed to Christ, with regard to their punishment. This is sometimes figuratively spoken of as the transference of the sins themselves like in Isa. 53:6. However, this presents no problem, to any Christian who views the Doctrine of Christ's atonement, from the entire context of Scripture, and not out of the Pits.

This is the basic flaw and heresy in the entire Jesus Died Spiritually SYSTEM. It is a demonic blinding, which causes a failure to comprehend the nature of the Doctrine of Messiah's Atonement. Few press on to Holiness, while many go into covetousness, and licentiousness, under such heretical teaching.

Christ made Himself liable to endure the penalty for our sins. On the cross and in His death, He was a holy, spotless sin-offering, not sinful with our sins. The Doctrine of Christ's Blood Atonement, as set forth in Scripture, is clearly NOT in agreement with the Doctrine of atonement taught by the majority involved with the Word/Faith movement.

The typical Word/Faith show will use various means to dull the self control fruit of the spirit regarding the mind, will, and emotions. Since the majority of physical illness, and the vast majority of mental illness, is the result of demonic spirits of infirmity, tremendous demonstrations of healing and other signs and wonders may occur to open up the souls of those attending the show, to receive false doctrine, by the supposed confirming signs.

Tremendous ground for demonic entry is gained through receiving heresy regarding the doctrine of Christ, particularly so, as it relates to the Blood Atonement. The feel good tickling demonic spirits gain entry to the mind and bodies of those attending the shows. The people are made to FEEL hyper spiritual. Many become empowered by counterfeit spirits which they sincerely believe is the Holy Spirit, thereby getting their consciences seared with a hot iron. Satan will take that deal every Sunday, of lifting a spirit of infirmity or two, have a little action from Jannes and Jambres, if demon spirits can thereby gain access to hundreds attending the show, who give demonic ground by receiving heresy related to the Blood Atonement of Messiah on the Cross.

Until such teachers would PUBLICALLY REPENT of ever having taught that Jesus:

1) Did Not Finish His Work Of Redemption on the CROSS
2) Was required to do Anything Other or In ADDITION to Shed His Holy Blood on the Cross to Get Victory over Satan, Hell, and Death, for the Redeemed
3) Had to die a Spiritual Death beyond His Physical Death on the Cross
4) Was Sinful, or made to be Sin rather than the Perfect SIN-OFFERING
5) Went to Hell
6) Was anything less than SINLESS, SPOTLESS, PERFECT, and HOLY even for an instant
7) Blood Shed on the Cross was anything less than ALL SUFFICIENT
8) Had to be born again
9) Was, even for a split second, anything less than God, the I AM who spoke to Moses and Abraham
10) Blood Shed on the Cross was anything less that TOTALLY SUFFICIENT to break ALL power of Satan, Hell, and Death

The Following must be MARKED as those who are to be AVOIDED and REJECTED for causing divisions and offences contrary to the Doctrine of Christ.

The following is a typical short version War-In-Hell story from literature and tapes of those MARKED and admonished for Heresy:

BRETHREN - I just can not publish this thing. It is too blasphemous. Identify yourself and let me know why you need to see it. Yes, it is just that disgusting to me.

The following is a refutation from the scriptures of the Jesus Died Spiritually rather than the Physical Death on the Cross. Again, in teaching that Jesus Died Spiritually, as well as physically, in order to have Jesus identify with sinners who are spiritually dead, we find that the Jesus Died Spiritually position is out of line with the Word of God.

Not once do the Scriptures state that Jesus died IN HIS SPIRIT. On the contrary, the following passages declare that Jesus, like the Old Testament type, offered His BODY as a sacrifice:
Who his own self bare our sins IN HIS OWN BODY on the tree...(I Pet. 2:24).
...being put to death IN THE FLESH, and quickened by the Spirit {i.e., as in Rom. 8:11 raised from the dead by the Spirit} (I Pet. 3:18).
Forasmuch then as Christ hath suffered for us IN THE FLESH...(I Pet. 4:1).
And you...hath he reconciled IN THE BODY OF HIS FLESH through death...(Col. 1:21-22).
I am the living bread which came down from heaven...and the bread that I will give is MY FLESH, which I will give for the life of the world (John 6:51).
...we are sanctified through the offering of the BODY OF JESUS once for all (Heb. 10:10).
Having abolished IN HIS FLESH the enmity, even the law of commandments...(Eph. 2:15).

There are many more scriptures which indicate that the sacrifice of Jesus constituted the offering up of HIS BODY OF FLESH. When Jesus said to the opposing religious leaders, "Destroy this temple, and in three day I will raise it up," we are informed that"...he spake of the TEMPLE OF HIS BODY" (John 2:19-21). When Jesus spoke of His approaching death it was always with reference to the offering of His BODY not His SPIRIT. This is clear from John chapter 6 where Jesus spoke of giving HIS FLESH to provide life for the world, and again when He, at the last supper, and gave the pierced striped unleavened bread of the Affikomen to His disciples, saying, "This is my BODY which is given for you" (Luke 22:19; Read also I Cor. 10:16; 11:24-29; Eph. 2:15; Rom. 7:4; Heb. 10:19-20).

God cannot die spiritually; this is why the scriptures state that the Son of God needed a body of flesh so that He could die physically on behalf of sinners like the Old Testament type. This necessity for the incarnation of the Son of God is clearly set forth in passages such as Hebrews 2; Philippians 2; Galatians 4:4-5; John 1, 3, and Colossians 1, 2. The Jesus Died Spiritually VIEW is that if Jesus only died physically, and that if the physical death of Jesus paid the penalty of sin, then every man could have died for himself.

Such a position on the Atonement reveals a total lack of comprehension of the meaning and nature of the Old Testament sacrifices. The sin-offering remained even in death MOST HOLY to God. This view overlooks the fact that the essential requirement in the sin-offering was that it had to be pure and sinless in order for God to accept it as a suitable substitute. The Old Testament type had to be spotless and without blemish, and it was literally fulfilled in the death of Jesus Christ (Heb. 9:14; I Pet. 1:18-19).

The teachings of those named and marked above, so demean the physical death of Jesus and the shedding of His blood that they make His death on the cross almost insignificant. Some of them have even said in essence, "when His blood poured our, it did not atone." Brethren, if that were the case then why was the cross necessary at all? Indeed, and sadly to these teachers and those following them 1 Cor 1:18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness. However, unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

Their low view of Yeshua's physical death and the blood of His cross is reflected in the teaching of one expounder of the error who actually said that Jesus bled just a few drops. He went on to say that most people who sing about the blood of Jesus do not know what they are talking about, for they think that Jesus bled all over the place! The blood of Jesus was still in His body when He died; he bled only a few drops from His wounds for the blood almost immediately coagulated and he stopped bleeding. Jesus died by an act of his own will when he wanted to, with respect to his physical death.

Where is the righteous indignation to such attacks upon the biblical view of the physical death of Jesus and the blood of His cross. Such contemptible teaching condemns itself. Those who demean the significance of the Blood Atonement like this need to be warned that the Scriptures declare that"...without shedding of blood {there} is no remission of sin" (Heb. 9:22), and that anyone who perverts the Doctrine of Christ in any way has the spirit of antichrist (2 John 7-11).

The Scriptures intentionally stress repeatedly that Jesus offered up His BODY and His FLESH as a sacrifice for sin. Not one time in the entire Holy Bible is it said that He died in His spirit. The Jesus Died Spiritually teachers willfully ignore this clear fact of Scripture. Why? Because to say what the Bible says about the nature of Christ's death would discredit and disprove their erroneous theory. Faith in your faith, is faith gone astray, it is Christian occultism. Sadly, EW Kenyon, upon whose teachings all of these do follow, was much more into Metaphysics than Biblical Christianity. The truth regarding this Faith/Word movement is that it is much more the result of and unholy marriage of 19th Century New Age Metaphysics and unprecedented Wresting of the Scriptures. Faith in your faith is faith gone astray. It is Christian occultism.


Benny Hinn is without any doubt one of the best known and possibly richest televangelists in the world. Each year he travels the world conducting rock concert style so-called miracle crusades. Benny preaches the prosperity gospel of the Word Faith movement regardless of how Jesus clearly taught AGAINST such doctrines.

Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

Mat 16:26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

The Apostle Paul also clearly taught against such doctrines as being the pinnacle of religious reprobation:

1 Tim 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

Benny Hinn dares to claim that the same Holy Spirit who inspired Scripture. tells him something VERY different, from the simple clear explicit teaching of the More Sure word written in the KJV Holy Bible. Sadly, Benny is successful with this, because most who call themselves Christians are so unlearned in the KJV Holy Bible scriptures, that they are unable to discern Benny's frequent doctrinal error, and out and out heresy.

Benny Hinn is a false prophet by any measurable standards. That is easily determined by Benny Hinn's false prophecies, unorthodox behavior, opulent lifestyle, financial practices, false claims, and foolish statements like the following to silence his critics. One should note this is EXACTLY what Our Lord warned us, that false imposters like Benny, would come in His name - even saying I am ANOINTED, meaning the same as saying, I am Christ. Here is the typical Benny Hinn effort to silence the godly men who would love him enough to give him the rebuke and reproof he needs:

The Holy Ghost is upon me...The day is coming when those that attack us will drop dead. You say, 'What did he say?' I speak this under the anointing of the spirit. Can I tell you something? Don't touch God's servants; it's deadly...Woe to you that touch God's servants. You're going to pay. 'And the day will come.' The Lord said that to me. He said, 'The day will come when I will punish instantly. Woe to those who touch my chosen.' They will fear us. Hear this: today they mock us; tomorrow they will fear us.

Benny has no problem in openly cursing and condemning anyone who would question his apostate doctrines and practices. Benny clearly believes and teaches that faith works as a mighty power or FORCE. In the book of Daniel we see Daniel speaking of the antichrist in Dan 11:38, saying, But in his estate shall he honour the God of FORCES: Benny clearly teaches that through their faith that they can obtain anything they want. This is NOT Christianity but METAPHYSICS. However, it is a sad comment on these last days of the great apostasy that so few recognize that God, and His sovereignty has NO Place in such antichrist heresy. Benny teaches that by the faith FORCE he teaches that followers and contributors can have anything they WANT. Whatever anyone may want is available through his teachings. 

When Benny was 21, he attended a healing service in Pittsburgh by evangelist Kathryn Kuhlman. She would become a major influence on his life, so much so, that he emulates her style to this day.

Under U.S. tax laws the Hinn Ministry is not legally obligated to makes its finances public because it is a religious organization. Although most major American churches and ministries release financial information voluntarily, there are no public records for how much the Hinn ministry makes, or how that money is spent. Benny Hinn insists that every penny is spent on God's work. But the fifth estate obtained confidential financial records from inside the Hinn ministry. These documents were provided by individuals who say they want the public to know how Benny Hinn spends the money entrusted to him. The fifth estate asked Roddy Allan, a forensic accountant, to review the ministry's expense and travel records. He says, "I'm a mere bean counter, but it would be hard to persuade me that you had to incur that kind of expense in order to accomplish a business objective."  

Here is a very small sampling of financial records from the summer of 2003. At that time Hinn had crusades in St. Petersburg, Russia and Stockholm, Sweden, and then departed for a four day whirlwind trip to Italy and London, billing it as a simple layover. A hotel bill for room service and chauffeur services at the Lanesborough Hotel in London was $6,790.06. Tips given to staff at Lanesborough Hotel in London after a one day stay totaled $3,448.10. Cash gifts to Benny considered typical of $5,000.00 are sometimes given a petty cash receipt, while others are never mentioned, or have any accounting record whatsoever. Benny paid one of his former bodyguards over $100,000.00 in hush money after he threatened to make public some of Benny's extravagant spending. No one knows how big Benny's salary is, but almost all who know Benny's lifestyle, know it is over a million dollars per year. (1997 CNN/Time Documentary investigating Hinn's finances and opulent lifestyle.)  

The typical Benny Hinn Miracle Crusade show will have a highly orchestrated performance where Benny appears dressed in gleaming white, just when the large choir reaches the crescendo of "How Great Thou Art." During the course of the show Benny will speak to a few people on stage, who claim to have been healed. Benny will then "slay" them in the spirit either by blowing on them, throwing his coat, or yelling "Fire on you!" At least one person has been killed by people falling on them in the "slaying" part of the show. Many leave the Benny Hinn show not healed but injured, or hurting from being fallen on during the slaying part of the Benny Hinn show. Benny very rarely, if ever, lays hands on those who are in need of healing. Only those claiming to have been healed, are allowed on stage. Often a number of empty wheelchairs will seem to suddenly appear on stage, when the healing part of the show begins.   

The HBO network's investigative report on Easter Sunday 2001, was titled "A Question of Miracles." This documentary is consistent with other documentaries on the Benny Hinn healing show fraud. The report noted that Benny Hinn performed 76 miracles on stage which they filmed. The producers of the documentary requested the names of those healed for verification. After 13 weeks of determined requests for the names, the ministry produced 5 of the 76 names. NONE of the 5, assumed to be the most convincing of the 76, were in fact healed. One of those supposed to be healed was 10 year old Ashnil Parkash who suffered from two brain tumors. Ashnil died seven weeks later regardless of the fact that his parents had pledged thousands of dollars to Benny Hinn's ministry. The proof of the healings from Benny Hinn's miracles is most conspicuous by the fact that there seems to be NO proof to be found. 

In the words of Justin Peters, an evangelist who wrote his master's thesis examining the life and ministry of Benny Hinn: Benny Hinn is a false prophet in every sense of the word. He is a pathological liar seemingly incapable of telling the truth even about major events in his own life history. His prophecies not only edify himself more than the body of Christ, but have been proven untrue and were, therefore NOT from God. He attempts to usurp biblical authority by that of his own "divine revelation" teachings and he teaches doctrines that are patently false and often in direct violation of the scripture. His salvation messages at most if not all of his crusades, is almost always interspersed with heresy that "The sinless Messiah not only took sin upon Himself, He became your sin." There may be enough of the gospel in Hinn's messages for people to come to Christ; however, if Hinn did not preach at least some orthodoxy, his following would not be nearly what it is. 

Benny Hinn does not fit the biblical ministerial mandates of being above reproach, being free from the love of money, and certainly does NOT have a good reputation with those outside the church. Benny Hinn's presentation of Christianity to the outside world is nothing short of embarrassing. His miracle crusades resemble rock concerts cloaked in Christian language. It is laughable how Hinn would dare to claim that he does not espouse a "give-to-get" theology. Benny Hinn has demonstrated an unending propensity to wrest the scriptures from their context and twist them to suit his own perverted theology.  

Benny Hinn not only fails to comfort the afflicted but often heaps guilt and condemnation upon them by such things as this direct quote from Benny Hinn: "If you do not receive your miracle, it's not God's fault. You say, 'well whose fault is it?' You figure that one out yourself."  

Believers are being harmed in a most sinister way by the whole Word Faith metaphysical so-called Christian movement. They are promised miracles, swindled out of their money, and when the miracles do not come, are led to believe that they have no one but themselves to blame. It angers me that Benny Hinn and his ilk use the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ to work their frauds and swindles. Still we should not lump all Pentecostals and charismatics into a classification of "gain is godliness" fraudulent swindlers. The answer is that people just simply are ignorant of what the KJV Holy Bible scriptures teach in full context. If people were disciplined in the Word of God such frauds as Benny Hinn would not have so many easy marks.  

To the believer who is suffering the affliction of any illness, I would say pray in FAITH, and ask God for your healing, and stay away from the Benny Hinn show frauds. This is much better advice - James 5:14-16 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.  

If healing does not come, you should know that it is NOT because you lack sufficient faith. We ALL, not just the sick, have need of more FAITH. And Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God, and not by Benny Hinn. If God chooses not to remove the affliction, TRUST HIM ANYWAY. See what the affliction may teach you and how that you may grow in His grace through the affliction. We have a message on Why Deliverance Can Take So Long that may be helpful, and all you need to do is ask for that message, no Benny Hinn donation and/or charge is required. Anyone who has enough faith to be saved most certainly has enough faith to be healed. That the afflicted one needs more faith IS NOT THE ISSUE. WE ALL NEED MORE FAITH. The plain truth is that ALL suffering is a result of sin, AND generally the people doing the suffering are not the ones who did the sinning, with the Lord Jesus Christ Himself being the best example of that. Often it is in the presence of pain that God's presence and His peace is often found to be most real. God can use afflictions for our good to bring us to greater and deeper understanding. Brethren, this side of glory, the promise of God is not health and wealth, but tribulation and suffering and WAR with the antichrist demonic host in the final 42 months before the return of the Lord.  

Only be very strong and of good courage. Stay IN the Word.
