The Sword of the Spirit: The Sound of Many Waters
Chapter: God’s Will (Page 171)
Nahum 1:7-9 “The Lord is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him, but with an overwhelming flood he will make an end of Nineveh; he will pursue his foes into darkness. Whatever they plot against the Lord he will bring to an end; trouble will not come a second time.”
As we pay attention to warning from God, we are to know that God forewarns those who care. They hear His call.
Those who feel deeply concerned can be rest assured that God completes all of His work. God’s work to congregate His people is a major piece of the puzzle.
God strives to lead us throughout the Bible. We are not to be overcome with the distractions of the world. We are to focus upon trusting the Lord and the people who are seeking to know Him as well.
This is our promise of reassurance that all will be completed and for some a tragic end will be the consequence of disregarding God in ways of life.
Just as a flood may overtake a city God will execute fierce justice upon those who worship false gods. Just as those who have rejected God are cursed, so will be those who have rejected God’s Son. In the End, God will allow for darkness to fill the lives of those who have chosen to seek a path other than His own.
All of the plots and conspiracies that man has attempted to bring against God are revealed in due time.
Having acted according to their own will, God will not allow for it to occur a second time.
God’s will is our life. God is all truth.

Chapter: Differentiating Between Religions
In addressing the example of Mary, let us be honest in addressing the matter of concern as to whether Mary persecuted Jesus, along with the entire lost world?
This is the number one difference between deceit and purity.
Jesus is God in the flesh. The Son of God is pure and without deceit.
Recognize that Mary was a woman, or a vessel, that carried the Son of God in her womb. Also know that the birth of Christ was not only a human birth, but a spiritual birth. It was a spiritual conception of Jesus by God the Father with Mary. This can also be compared to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. God created Jesus.
Remember that Eve fell into temptation by Satan. There is a point here as to God’ supreme authority. Everything written in the Bible is for a reason.
God has been clear as to who we are to worship. All of creation is to worship Jesus, the only begotten of the Father.
Know that just as the world persecuted and doubted Jesus as the Son of God, so did Mary the mother of Jesus. Many doubted His existence and the reality of His supreme power. Know that many fell to jealousy and envy. Know that many fell to the temptation of Satan and this is why we are not to worship the Virgin Mary, for that would be idol worship. God has been clear about this…
Let it be clear that when we attend church, pastors and ministers across the world are to be sharing the story of Jesus, and not of Mary. This is what God asks. The church must be corrected from this stand point.
Who murdered Jesus? I ask you this…The Roman Church. The priests and scribes who delivered Jesus up to be crucified were a critical part of the conspiracy…
Do you now understand what the Lord of Mercy and Islam were created for? Simply to justify the actions of murdering the Son of God.
Who is to be the cornerstone of our society? Mary or Jesus?
Understanding the direct correlation between Mary and Eve will help you gain an understanding of God and his plan for man and woman or a husband and wife. The man is the Head of the household, just as Jesus is the Head of the Body of Christ. The Angels all understand this key point…Remember the director and the orchestra…symbolism…
Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world today. Catholicism is the largest religious body among those professing to be Christian. If the number of followers was a good measure for selecting a religion, then Islam and Catholicism would definitely be the way to go. However, the Bible has no such yardstick.
Let this be clear…
Matthew 7:13-14 “Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide, and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and many are those who enter by it. For the gate is small, and the way is narrow that leads to life, and few are those that find it.”
Now, many people of the Islamic faith have congregated wherever processions carry the statutes of Mary and where her apparitions are said to have appeared. She is esteemed above the most revered women of the Muslim faith, including Muhammad’s two favorite wives. Khadija and Aisha, and his daughter Fatima. The hadith teaches that Muhammad selected Mary as his first wife upon entrance into Paradise. The most popular Catholic apparitions of Mary is referred to as Our Lady of Fatima.
Let this be clear, repetitive prayer 5 times a day (Pay Attention to Symbols) is not going to cut it. This is not communication with God, and let it be known that the God of Islam and Catholicism are not the same God of Christianity. Idol worship is not the way of Christ, nor false doctrine…
Prayer beads were a part of Islamic devotion to Allah long before an apparition of the Blessed Lady taught St. Dominic to pray the rosary beads in the thirteenth century.
Multi millions of Catholics travel yearly to hundreds of shrines (nearly all dedicated to Mary) located throughout the world. Pay careful attention to the fact that the Church of Rome offered the crusaders full pardon from purgatory should they die trying to liberate the Holy Land. Similarly, Islam offers rewards in assurance of Paradise to those who die in religious battles (jihad), including suicide bombings.
Key Point: Roman Catholicism recognizes Allah as the God of the Bible.
Allah has no son: “And say: Praise be or Allah, who hath not taken unto Himself a son, and who hath no partner in the Sovereignty…” (Sura 17:111)
While there are both clear and critical differences between the Biblical God and Allah, nevertheless, the Roman Catholic Church accepts them as one and the same God.
The Roman Catholic Church has also a high regard for the Muslims. They worship God, who is one, living and subsistent, merciful and almighty, the Creator of heaven and earth, who has also spoken to men. They strive to submit themselves without reserve to the hidden decrees of God, just as Abraham submitted himself to God’s plan, to whose faith Muslims eagerly link to their own.
Roman Catholicism and Islam do not acknowledge Jesus as God. They venerate Jesus as a prophet, his virgin Mother they also honor, and even at times devoutly evoke. Further, they await the day of judgment and the reward of God following the resurrection of the dead.
By paying close attention to this point we see the tie that binds Catholicism and Islam together: They both have a Jesus who cannot save their souls. The Quran teaches that Jesus did not die on the cross. Let me remind you of the sufferings of Jesus. His scars and overall design prove that He died and if you do not believe then your fate simply rests with God and the judgment of His Perfectly Righteous Son.
Mary, the Mother of Jesus, would not allow for denominations to be created, in which there is lack of acknowledgment for the Son of God. By condoning and allowing for such worship to take place, the nature of Mary, is indicated. You see, a true servant woman of God would not allow for false religion to have been allowed, in which Mary was at the center of the faith. By not addressing this critical point many have become lost in rituals and worship that is not centered upon Jesus Christ.
Know this, Jesus understands the kingdom of God because that is where He was created. He was born in Heaven and sent to earth. Mary was to be His mother, along with the many other mothers that embraced Him as both a man and child. We must understand that Jesus had many adopted parents. Being the chosen Messiah, His extensive education, knowledge, and power came through what He was taught by God’s many servants combined with all the knowledge of God the Father and the Angels of Heaven…
There is only one God in this world, and that is Jesus Christ. Those who choose to believe or worship otherwise will not see the Kingdom of Heaven. You must understand this point clearly and comprehend the Bible carefully.
Luke 1:26-30 “Now in the sixth month the Angel of the Lord was sent to a city in Galilee, called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the descendants of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. And coming in, he said to her, “Hail, favored one! The Lord is with you. But she was greatly troubled at this statement, and kept pondering what kind of salutation this might be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God.”
It is clear by reading this verse, sent from God by His Angel, that Mary was favored as many significant figures in the Bible. But let it be known, that there is only one perfect Son of God, who bears all of the power of the Holy Spirit, and His name is Jesus. You see, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and God conceived the Son. To fully understand you must know that Jesus is all three in one body.
To deny the Trinity is to deny Jesus.
One more fact that we must know is that Mary is allowed to be part of Jesus, by His consent. Jesus judges righteously, according to what the Father reveals to Him.

Chapter: Prince of Truth (Pages 89-90)
John 10:1-3 “Truly, truly, I say to you, he who does not enter by the door into the fold of the sheep, but climbs up some other way, he is a thief and a robber. But he who enters by the door is a shepherd of the sheep. To him the doorkeeper opens, and the sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out.”
This scripture demonstrates the truth. The beginning and the end of the gates of heaven.
Ask Yourself: Who is the true shepherd? Who tells you the truth? Who lies? Who is honorable? Who can you trust? Who empowers you as opposed to leading you astray?
These are all questions that need to be addressed in order to discover the gates of heaven. These are all individual questions and revelations that one must address in order to discover the answers of God.
What is a person who continues to act from their own selfish ambition as opposed to looking out for others? This is a thief and a robber. As we take a careful look into the political arena, who is one that wishes to take away from you by any and all means? The thief is of his father, the devil.
A true heart is noble and genuine. A true leader is one that represents qualities that demonstrate desire to empower his people. As we carefully walk into new leadership let us know that a man of God is a man of truth. A man of God does not steal in order for his own benefit, in order to gain control.
We have seen clearly the results of electing a thieves and deceivers into office. This will not stand and the true hope for the world derives from within the heart of a man who does not need the job. A leader is to be one that understands individual success and what it takes to attain it. This is the bottom line of economics. Good economics derives from individual success and independent growth, much more rewarding… Individual success comes from God. God takes care of those who seek Him out. Radical Islam attempts to steal and gain control by any and all means. By looking in all the right places we are able to see that God provides success to those who honor His Word.
Let us be aware of the thieves and inform the public of the individuals who seek to take advantage of the public in order to get into a position out of selfish greed. Greed (Harassment) is the root of all evil and we must address greed just as we address stealing.
To whom much is given much is required…That is why he gave His Son the Job of Saving the World…All the knowledge of what it would take to lead people out a very bad situation…
