Comment on a comment – “There’s Jim Jones, David Koresh, and Stewart Best.”

It is utterly amazing to me how people can spout off at the mouth so much and prove themselves fools time after time. The old saying goes “It is better to shut your mouth and be thought a fool, than to open it and prove it”.

I am not sure what brought this comment, but it does show us what is actually happening to the American people these days – and why many a blog or comment section on websites are simply shut down because of the utter rudeness and stupidity of the people involved.

To link me in with Jim Jones who was a CIA linked mass murderer is quite a charge to make, and I ask Mark to bring forth his TRUTHS to prove it, fact by fact. As for David Koresh, I see no connection, as we have no cult compound, no cult people here, and no local followers who fawn at my every word. In point of fact, no local church wants me to darken their door, as I might somehow bring evil their way, as they call the real truth evil.

As I have said, I am not a religious person, never was, never will be. I am most likely a poor excuse for a Christian, but then, Jesus can only save those who are, shall we say, poor excuses for humanity by  civilized “standards”. Jesus Christ did not bring to Earth another religion, He brought with Him a way for mankind to mend his broken heart and save him from utter and eternal destruction. Jesus gave us the way to escape, and most of the mockers  of that WAY are actually Christians WHO SIMPLY CANNOT ABIDE BY THE REAL AND TRUE STATEMENTS JESUS MADE TO US CONCERNING THAT “WAY” OF ESCAPE.

I was called of the Lord a long time ago to simply bring the real words of Christ back to an apostate Church. I hear over and over again, “I never saw that verse in the Bible before!” or, “I’ve been going to church for 30 years and never heard any of this!!” and so on. That is apostasy. We are in the middle of the greatest apostasy the world as ever seen. I had never heard any of it either until the Lord called me. That is a story of an in itself, but the brief part of it is this:

When I was about 6 or 7  years old, I was walking home from a Church School I had attended. I lived up on top of a mountain and it was about a 2 mile walk home. The weather was great, the Sun was out, and it was just a nice summer day. I remember even the location the Lord spoke to me on that day – and He said to me “Stewart, the Bible is the most important book you will ever have”. That was it. And like most others, I put it on the shelf and went out a whoring after the world. But I knew something was wrong here all the time. I never fit in, I never really wanted to. I was different, I had a totally different outlook on things. Can’t explain it, just was.

I was a professional corporate pilot for many years, flying the latest in jet aircraft. One day, after checking to make sure all the baggage was off the aircraft I was walking up towards the front in the passenger cabin and suddenly stopped. I remember thinking “I have to get out of here, I have to leave now, I have to find the truth”. I did. I quit that very day.

Now the long and short of this is that I began to search for real truth with every waking hour. I studied all the religions and the Bible. It was obvious that Jesus Christ really was the Messiah and the Redeemer of mankind. So the search for the real truth was now on. Who really was Jesus? What did He want? Well, that intense search lasted for 3-4 years or a little more. Day and night. I did not know it, but I had been searching for the truth for years and years.

The more I searched the more I began to understand. And then something very strange began to happen. I began to die. Not in the physical sense, but in the soul-spirit sense. I began to sense that I was dead, really dead inside. It grew far worse over time. I knew I was dead. Totally dead. It was not anything I thought, it was something I KNEW, from deep, deep within. Then came the awful terrible conclusion I was going to hell. I really was. Again, it was not my mind, it was deeper than anything I can explain. It was a certainty, a conviction to JUDGMENT FROM THE LORD. I absolutely KNEW I was DEAD IN MY TRESPASSES AND SINS, AND HELL WAS REAL AND I WAS GOING THERE. There was no mistake. The conviction of the Holy Spirit UNTO JUDGEMENT is a horrible thing, but it is a necessary thing for all of us. The conviction grew over time, it was a terrible time.

I remember praying to Jesus to come into my heart a million times, but nothing ever happened. Just the cold winds of silence blowing in my face. I was CUT OFF from God. Cut off from the world. Cut off from everyone and everything. I did not know it then, but I was in the LOWEST ROOM. I was in the PIT OF DEATH. There was no one to help me, no one at all. There I sat, day after day, week after week, year after year. It was sheer agony. I thought I was going crazy, losing my mind.

But then, one day, in the spring of 1980, I was sitting on my couch in the living room of our tiny trailer feeling sorry for myself. Real sorry. I picked up a little booklet that evangelists Jack Van Impe had sent to me, it was called “A CALL TO LOVE”.  I opened it up and began to read it. “If you have not charity”. It then struck me right there – my problem was I did not IN TRUTH  love anyone except myself. Then something so strange and so wonderful happened I still have to go back there to marvel at it.

It was like I was in a movie theater and the curtains rolled back. Suddenly I was looking right INTO a LOVE so deep, so wonderful, so fantastic and so powerful that it transcended all the nations, all the world, all the people, all sins, all the Universe, all of everything!! There are no words to describe the LOVE OF CHRIST. It is all beyond any human understanding. I was transfixed by what I was seeing. I was not feeling this love, I was looking into WHAT IT WAS, HOW IT WORKS.

Then a voice spoke to me. “Stewart, do you agree that LOVE RUNS THIS UNIVERSE?” I answered “YES SIR!!!” That was actually what I had been looking for. THE REAL TRUTH BEHIND ALL OF IT.

Then He said to me: “Stewart, have you ever loved?” Well, that was easy to answer having just looked at HIS LOVE. “NO SIR”!!

Then He said to me, “Will you?” Well, you know I struggled with that for a moment. I also KNEW that if I said no, there would never be another offer ever. It was not a fear thing, there was no fear. It was just a fact.  I finally said “Yes Sir”!! and I felt Him come into me and everything REVERSED. I felt myself TURN AROUND SOMEHOW.

You see when I said YES to Him, I opened the DOOR TO MY MOST INNERMOST HEART OF HEARTS to let Him in. Here it is in the Bible:

Rev 3:20-22

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

The door here is the HIDDEN INNER MAN, THE HIDDEN INNER HEART. Most people, including Christians, are totally unaware they have a hidden, deeply hidden VERY EVIL inner heart, the very core of their being. But it is there, and it is THAT DOOR that must be opened. You cannot get there unless you enter the STRAIT GATE and walk the NARROW WAY to find true LIFE, for the TRUE LIFE IS IN THE SON, AND THAT LIFE IS DIVINE AGAPE LOVE. This inner heart is ANTICHRIST TO THE CORE. It is a prisoner of Satan. Remember that Jesus said HE MUST BIND THE STRONG MAN BEFORE HE CAN PLUNDER THE HOUSE. The house is your innermost hidden heart. You have an antichrist spirit because of the fall. The human race actually hates the REAL GOD with a passion, and will do anything to avoid the truth of who and what he is.

When Jesus told us to PICK UP OUR CROSS AND DIE, he was referring to the walk of the narrow way. The narrow way IS NOT giving up all kinds of things. The narrow way is the method God the Father uses to CRUCIFY US AS WE SEARCH OUT THE TRUTH WITH ALL OF HEARTS, MINDS SOULS AND STRENGTH. And it will take everything you have even though it is totally free.

So then, I said yes, and everything changed from that moment on. I said to the Lord, “I going to screw this thing up, you know, I don’t know anything about your love”. That did not seem to bother Him at all. So I went out side, and the next thing that happened was a coolness that came over me, a real cool feeling all through me. I did not know it at the time, but that is the TIME OF THE REFRESHING, and you will find that in the Bible. It is like a hot day and the cool winds are to refresh you. Then came a joy unspeakable. A joy so great my wife said I was jumping up and down. It was the EARNEST OF THE HOLY SPIRIT. It was my down payment of what was to come. It is called the EARNEST in the Bible. Look it up for yourself.

Well then something really different happened. I asked the Lord to baptize me, and it began to pour rain from the heavens. I was soaked, but full of joy. It is all real, people, all real, and the Bible is the only book that will save you from eternal ruin. The salvation of the Lord is FULLY EXPERIENTIAL and those who claim it is not have no clue whatsoever as to what this is all about. When you look upon the LOVE OF CHRIST, and you compare it with yourself, YOU ARE LOST.

We are all going to be judged by the LOVE OF CHRIST, WHICH IS THE LIGHT OF CHRIST. No one can stand against His love. No one. Mankind knows nothing of this LOVE TYPE. Divine Agape is so far above mankind’s various loves that it defies definition. This is why John said:

1 John 3:1-2

3 Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the

world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.

2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that,

when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

Notice the WHAT MANNER OF LOVE? It is so radically different than anything the human race knows about that indeed is really is a “WHAT MANNER”. God bestows it to the believer, it is the robe of Christ. The Bible is about the LOVE OF GOD. It is also about the METHOD that God gave to us to FIND HIM. Not just believe and have faith, but to put that belief and faith to work and SEARCH HIM OUT WITH ALL DILIGENCE. If you will, He will save you, if you won’t He will not.

All must stand before the DIVINE LOVE OF CHRIST CALLED THE LIGHT,  FOR JUDGMENT. Do it while you are alive, for if you will not, then Christ cannot save you and you die in  your sins. Mankind lives in total spiritual darkness, depraved, unknowing of his fate, unknowing of his true standing before the Creator. He makes up all types of religions in an attempt to bring God down to Earth. The narrow way  is is bring man up to God,  the exact opposite. Here it is:

John 3:19-21

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.
KJV

When Jesus Christ said He would MANIFEST HIMSELF to the believer that OBEYED HIM. He was not fooling:

John 14:21-25

21 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.

22 Judas saith unto him, not Iscariot, Lord, how is it that thou wilt manifest thyself unto us, and not unto the world?

23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.

24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you.
KJV

I do not understand why people refuse such a plain and simple concept. Look up the word MANIFEST. It does not mean Christ manifesting Himself THROUGH YOU by good deeds, It means Jesus Christ HIMSELF, PERSONALLY,  WILL REVEAL WHO HE AND WHAT HE IS to the obedient Christian who has done as commanded. He will, I met Him, I spoke with Him, and He with me. It is all real, and it means exactly what it says. Get real, get serious, for time it is a wasting.

You see, I don’t believe, I KNOW. I don’t believe it by faith, I know it because Jesus Christ manifested Himself to me, and literally showed me WHO HE REALLY IS. IT IS FULLY EXPERIENTIAL, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise for the Bible says it over and over again.  The Bible is full of this fully experiential encounter, and it is Satan who has infiltrated the Church and foisted this FAITH ONLY, BELIEF ONLY GOSPEL UPON THE PEOPLE, and calls the REAL TRUTH A LIE.  USE YOUR FAITH AS A DYNAMIC FORCE TO PROPEL YOU TO SEARCH HIM OUT. It is NOT A WORK. IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH “WORKS”. It is a command straight from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Creator Himself. Believe it, it is THE REAL TRUTH.

OKLAHOMA GAY PRIDE WEEK, TORNADOES, AND JUDGE ROY MOORE – IS THERE A CONNECTION?

You will not hear about this on any major media, but it is a fact that Gay Pride Week began in Oklahoma on the very day that the first tornado struck, and the day after the massive twister struck Moore. It is interesting to me that Judge Roy Moore, who refused to take out the 10 Commandments from the Court House and was forced to by the Federal Courts:

“One of the most controversial judges in Alabama history is Judge Roy Moore, who grabbed the nation’s attention over his fight to keep a copy of The Ten Commandments in his courtroom and later in the Alabama Judicial Building. Who is this man and how did he get to this point in his life? Why risk everything for a monument? Moore tells his story of the journey in his book, co-authored with John Perry, So Help Me God – The Ten Commandments, Judicial Tyranny, and the Battle for Religious Freedom.”

And then this:

Roy Moore returns: Ten Commandments judge to be sworn in again as Alabama’s chief justice

Moore, 65, will be sworn in by Circuit Judge John Bentley of the state’s 25th Judicial Circuit … from office after he refused to obey a federal court order to remove a Ten Commandments monument that he had placed in the judicial building. Everything Alabama Blog · 1/10/2013”

Now you might say this is a stretch to claim there is any connection here – but it seems odd that MOORE OKLAHOMA has been struck TWICE by a huge F4-F5 tornadoes, and the odds, they said on TV, were so astronomical (trillions to one), that it makes one wonder if the Lord is trying to tell us something. It seems there is a connection between the 10 Commandments, the Holy Bible, and God’s ever increasing anger at the people of the United States for their utter rebellion and apostasy from His Word:

Now let’s add in Oklahoma’s GAY PRIDE WEEK:

This year’s annual Pride Festival in downtown Oklahoma City may mark a milestone for the city’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Beginning Sunday, May 19th, 2013

Now in its 25th year, the festival has moved from a less glamorous area of town into the footprint of the Devon tower and the restored Film Row district downtown.

For Joshua Sauer, the move marks a significant step toward full integration and acceptance in a state known more for its social conservatism than its acceptance of the gay community.

“The first Pride Festival ever, we were literally fighting the (Ku Klux Klan),” said Sauer, who serves as vice president of OKCPride, the nonprofit group that organizes Pride Week.

“This city and this state are not as bigoted as people think,” he said. “Over time, it just gets better, and people start to realize we’re normal people just like anyone else.”

Perfect sunshine set the scene Saturday for the kickoff of Pride Week. A parade at 6 p.m. Sunday leads to movie nights throughout the week. The event will culminate with two days of rodeo, May 26 and 27.”

FIRST TORNADO STRUCK SHAWNEE – SUNDAY – MAY 19TH

Just east of Oklahoma City, a tornado swept through Shawnee, Okla. that afternoon, demolishing a mobile home neighborhood and killing two men.

Before Sunday’s end, other tornadoes touched down across the state in Edmond (a northern OKC suburb), Luther, Prague, Arcadia and near Wellston.

The very next day, May 20th, two days into GAY PRIDE WEEK, the Moore Oklahoma tornado rips through Moore and all but destroys a large part of it.

Now then, lets put all of this together with that hated Holy Book, called the Holy Bible, to see if there is any possible connection here:

Prov 1:22-33

22 How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?

23 Turn you at my reproof: behold, I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.

24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded;

25 But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof:

26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh;

27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you.

 

28 Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me:

29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord:

30 They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.

31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.

32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.

33 But whoso hearkeneth unto me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil.

There are millions of Christians who claim they love the Lord, swear by every written word, but who are in truth utter apostates because they refuse the Lord’s commands. Oklahoma is in the Bible Belt – but the vast majority of Christians down there have refused the commands of the Lord Jesus Christ to enter in at the strait gate and walk the narrow way and come to the LIGHT OF CHRIST to have their deeds reproved. They claim all of that is a work of some type, some foolish adding to “faith” and “belief”.

The Lord says He shall have His way IN THE WHIRLWIND:

Nah 1:3-6

3 The Lord is slow to anger, and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked: the Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of his feet.

4 He rebuketh the sea, and maketh it dry, and drieth up all the rivers: Bashan languisheth, and Carmel, and the flower of Lebanon languisheth.

5 The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.

6 Who can stand before his indignation? and who can abide in the fierceness of his anger? his fury is poured out like fire, and the rocks are thrown down by him.

Now people must begin to understand that if you are not IN CHRIST IN TRUTH, that is, if you have not entered the strait gate, if you have not walked the narrow way unto death, if you have not stood before the LIGHT OF DIVINE AGAPE, THE LOVE OF CHRIST and been JUDGED by that love, then you are counted as UNSAVED, UNREGENERATE, AND THEREFORE ONE OF THE WICKED. You can believe anything you want, but the Bible flat out tells you what Jesus Christ requires of us, and if we in our haughtiness claim otherwise, we will not escape what is coming.

Jer 30:23-24

23 Behold, the whirlwind of the Lord goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.

24 The fierce anger of the Lord shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.

 

I believe we are receiving a warning from the Lord but I also know few will accept it as such. The Book of Revelation tells us that many disasters fall upon the world, but mankind refuses to repent or admit that God is behind it:

Rev 9:20-21

20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

So there you have it in a nutshell – mankind drifts further and further away from the Creator, until they are almost totally destroyed, refusing to acknowledge that God has the power over all of this:

Rev 16:9-11

9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.

10 And the fifth angel poured out his vial upon the seat of the beast; and his kingdom was full of darkness; and they gnawed their tongues for pain,

11 And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds.

 

Just because you take the name of Christ, or you have faith or have belief does not make you a real authentic Christian. “Verily, verily, I say unto you, you MUST be born again”. These words of the Lord say it all – so then, are you one of the wicked, or one of the wise?
