WELCOME TO "LIVING HOPE IN JESUS"!!!
WE ARE AN INTERNATIONAL CHURCH INTERNET MINISTRY PROCLAIMING THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TO THE ENTIRE WORLD SINCE SEPTEMBER 21, 2006!!! TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
We are Evangelists Stephen Richie and Bonita Ann (Logsdon) Richie and we have been given a mandate by God to share His living hope in Jesus with you. This is the sole purpose of this International Church Internet Ministry. Please read our commission by The Almighty God and LORD Jesus Christ.
We are a married couple absolutely in love and awe of The LORD Jesus Christ. We are ordained Ministers. We were ordained in June 2011. We truly desire to reach the entire world with the eternally saving Gospel of The LORD and ONLY Savior Jesus Christ. Our prayer is that you will find here what you need in order to find Jesus' eternal salvation, His comfort, His encouragement and His sweet peace. In a sin-cursed world one can find no hope.....but The LORD Jesus has GREAT news for you......There is LIVING hope in JESUS!!!!!!
The divine vision for this Church internet ministry was given to Evangelist Stephen Richie by God Almighty Jesus Christ Himself in 1996. "Living Hope In Jesus" was born ten years later on September 21, 2006. The LORD Jesus has blessed this ministry as He has taken it far beyond our hopes (and human frailties) and has given us the opportunity to proclaim His Word to the world.
We rejoice that The LORD Jesus Christ has now brought the divine vision of this Church internet ministry to glorious birth and fruition at God's appointed time.
Our heart's desire is to give this website as a gift from us to The LORD Jesus. It is a labor of love. It is ONLY about HIM...THE LORD JESUS CHRIST...the eternal Savior of our souls!!!
It is with sincere joy and thankfulness to The LORD Jesus ALONE that we write the following dedication of this website to HIM.
THIS CHURCH INTERNET MINISTRY IS DEDICATED TO OUR PRECIOUS LORD AND ONLY SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST. HE IS KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS AND OH, HOW WE DO LOVE HIM. HE HAS SAVED US FROM SATAN BY HIS OWN BLOOD SHED FOR US AS OUR SACRIFICE FOR OUR SINS BEFORE ALMIGHTY GOD ON AN OLD RUGGED CROSS AT CALVARY (YES...GOD'S OWN BLOOD!!!) AND HAS GIVEN TO US HIS ETERNAL LIFE. WE HAVE FAITH IN THE LORD JESUS AND WE HAVE FAITH IN HIS BLOOD. OH HOW VERY VERY VERY THANKFUL WE ARE FOR THE BLOOD OF THE LORD JESUS!!!
WITHOUT JESUS WE HAVE NOTHING. WITHOUT JESUS WE ARE NOTHING. THERE IS NO LIFE TO HAVE WITHOUT JESUS. WE WERE SINNERS HEADED TO AN ETERNITY IN HELL'S FLAMES BEFORE GOD IN HIS MERCY AND GRACE STOOPED DOWN AND REACHED WAY DOWN TO DRAW US TO HIMSELF AND TO THE LORD JESUS. HE SAVED OUR SOULS OUT OF HIS COMPASSION FOR US. IT WAS ALL BECAUSE OF WHAT JESUS DID FOR US ON THE OLD RUGGED CROSS OF CALVARY. WE REPENTED OF OUR SINS. WE BEGGED GOD TO SAVE OUR ETERNAL SOULS. WE BELIEVED EVERYTHING IN HIS WORD ABOUT THE LORD JESUS. HE THEN GAVE US ETERNAL SALVATION IN THE LORD JESUS CHRIST BECAUSE OF THE LORD JESUS' BLOOD SACRIFICE ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY. WE HAVE BELIEVED IN THE ETERNALLY SAVING POWER OF THE LORD JESUS' BLOOD.
WE CAN NEVER THANK GOD OUR FATHER ENOUGH FOR HIS ETERNAL SALVATION AND FORGIVENESS FOR OUR SINS AND ATONEMENT BECAUSE OF THE LORD JESUS' BLOOD SACRIFICE ON THAT OLD RUGGED CROSS SO MANY YEARS AGO.....NEVER!!!
IT IS TO THE LORD JESUS THAT WE SPEAK THE FOLLOWING WORDS.......
"THIS CHURCH INTERNET MINISTRY IS GIVEN AS A GIFT TO YOU FROM US, LORD JESUS, WITH ALL OF OUR LOVE."
"THANKS FOR EVERYTHING, FATHER."
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST WELCOMES YOU HERE!!!
PLEASE READ OUR SPECIAL MESSAGE TO GOD'S BELOVED JEWISH PEOPLE!!!
May The LORD Jesus ever bless you in the knowledge of Himself. To those who are unsaved, may you find The Treasure that God placed you on this earth to find.....His Name is JESUS. To live out one's life and never find this Treasure is the saddest of lives. The choice to spend an eternity screaming in a furnace of eternal fire because of rejecting Jesus is a choice you don't want to make. Eternity is a long time to regret rejecting God's plan of salvation for you. He stands with His arms open wide for you. PLEASE don't turn Him away.
Jesus is coming back VERY soon and we don't have much farther to travel in this evil world. He will soon come back to take His saved children Home to be with Him for all of eternity. All of our tears and worries will be gone forever and never to be remembered ever again, Beloved! Til then, we wish to encourage you in The LORD Jesus and in your walk with Him. Til then, we wish for ALL of us in His Church to stand strong in the doctrines that were delivered to us by The LORD Jesus Christ so many, many, many years ago. The LORD Jesus' doctrines are found in His inerrant and infallible Word. It is of utmost importance that you read and study your Bible, Beloved.
We MUST live consecrated and holy and blameless lives before The LORD Jesus for He is returning for a spotless Bride just as The Word of God tells us. We CANNOT hold Jesus' hand with one hand and hold onto the world with the other hand. This is unacceptable to Him. Seeing it is HE that "calls the shots", we MUST obey and be conformed into the image of Christ.
We are in a time in history of mankind when the last days are upon us.....the antichrist is prepared and ready to take his place on God's prophetic stage, the one-world religious system and one-world government is applying it's finishing touches upon it's last days agenda, the Church is so lukewarm and compromising (in fact, many in The Church cannot be distinguished from the evil ungodly world!), and the prophetic signs are in place that Jesus spoke of signaling that the tribulation and the outpouring of God's wrath upon this evil world is right at the door. Jesus told His true children in His inerrant and infallible Word that we are to pray that we be found worthy to escape the things that will come upon the world as God's wrath is poured out upon this evil, ungodly world.
"Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man."
The LORD Jesus Christ spoke this instruction in Luke 21:36 to all of God's true born-again children. We, as Christians, MUST begin praying that prayer to our Father just as The LORD Jesus told us to do and make ourselves ready. PLEASE don't be left behind. Turn off the ungodly television....turn off the ungodly music on the radio, etc....cease from striving to be rich in this world that God plans to destroy with fire....cease from lusting after the evils of this world.....cease from hating and back-biting and gossiping and trying to avenge yourself of wrongs done to you in this lifetime.....cease from adultery and fornication and pornography and all sexual sins and immoral sexual lusts.
So many are under God's judgement this very hour due to rejecting Him and rejecting The LORD Jesus and His inerrant and infallible Word. Let us read it together in Romans 1: verses 18-32.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; SO THAT THEY ARE WITHOUT EXCUSE:
Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
WHEREFORE GOD ALSO GAVE THEM UP to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
FOR THIS CAUSE God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, GOD GAVE THEM OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND, to do those things which are not convenient;
Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
We must ALL go before The LORD Jesus Christ in full and true repentance of all of our deeds and ask Him to save our eternal souls. It is ONLY because of His infinite mercy that He can and will forgive us and save our souls from the enemy of our souls......satan himself. Jesus will cause us to be born again by placing His Holy Spirit within us......by washing us clean from our sin by His blood......by changing us from within by His Holy Spirit within us to be in His likeness of righteousness. The things we used to love (SIN!) will become the very things we hate. We will run from sin. We will not want to be touched by it in any way. This is what The LORD Jesus does for and to a life!!! He takes us from the death of our flesh desires to the life of HIS desires for righteousness and righteous living. Those without Jesus are dead and do not realize it. To observe them milling about in socialization and sin is to observe the spiritually dead in this world laughing and playing in the spiritual cemetery of godlessness on earth while not realizing they are dead spiritually and headed straight to a devil's eternally-burning hell. They are truly dead and doomed. It is so very heart-breaking......yet it is in this very condition that Jesus finds ALL of us before we ask Him to save our souls. Beloved, if you are lost and undone without God and His Son Jesus, please believe, repent, and ask Jesus to save your soul right now. As a clock ticks, so is your own life ticking towards it's eternal destiny. There are only two choices.......Heaven or hell. YOU will be the one who will choose. If you reject Jesus and His salvation, God will be merely giving to you what YOU chose when you are cast into hell's eternally-burning flames for all of eternity. There will be only pain and screaming in hell for all of eternity. Try to grasp how long eternity is. Your mind will lose itself trying to grasp how long eternity is. Eternity has NO end. You ALONE will chose where you spend eternity. There will be no cheering sections cheering you on to continue in sin and blaspheme God Almighty and The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Ghost. You will cry out to The LORD Jesus for all of eternity for God's mercy and will not receive one single moment of it. NOW is the time to receive God's mercy. PLEASE receive it today!!! Time is almost up, Beloved. Time is almost up.
"And He (The LORD Jesus) said unto them, Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God."
"That which is highly esteemed among men" also includes the ungodly famous people (authors, movie and television actors and actesses, worldly singers, etc., etc., etc.) who are adored by the masses in this world!!!!! One such individual is Oprah Winfrey. WARNING:TURN OFF OPRAH WINFREY'S SHOW!!! SHE HAS NEVER DENIED IN RECENT YEARS THAT SHE SEEKS AND RECEIVES GUIDANCE FROM DEAD SPIRITS (IN TRUTH, THESE ARE DEMONS!!!) SO THIS DENIAL OF THE LORD JESUS IS OF NO SURPRISE!!! STAY FAR, FAR, FAR AWAY FROM OPRAH WINFREY AND HER TEACHINGS!!!) OPRAH WINFREY IS BUT ONE EXAMPLE OF THE EVILS OF UNGODLY TELEVISION, UNGODLY MOVIES, UNGODLY MUSIC, UNGODLY HORROR BOOKS, ETC. FLEE FROM THESE THINGS. THEY ARE OF THE DEVIL HIMSELF!!!
FLEE FROM HERESY AND FALSE RELIGIONS!!!
FLEE man-made doctrines. The ONLY way you will know a man-made doctrine from a God-given Biblical doctrine is to read and study God's inerrant and infallible Word.
FLEE all cults and false religions!!! Our life has even been touched very briefly by a cult. MANY cults and MANY false religions profess to be Christian but they are NOT!!! (Perfect examples of those masquerading as Christian - WHILE THEY ARE NOT! - are the Mormons and the Seventh Day Adventists, etc.!!!) God loves leading His true children into His truth about cults and false religions. As He shows you the truth, Beloved, FLEE, FLEE, FLEE from these!!!
FLEE any "church", "teacher", or "preacher" that strays from the true gospel and Bible (to teach any other gospel than The LORD Jesus Christ's is called heresy, blasphemy, and apostate). MANY false teachers and false preachers and false prophets and false miracle-workers are on Christian television!!! It is on television and radio that they reach out to your needs in this world and invite your monies in order for you to obtain the answers to prayers you need from God. They prey upon your needs, Beloved!!! While taking away your money and feeding their own pockets with it, they are also teaching you covetousness and leading you AWAY from The LORD Jesus and AWAY from the ONLY truth of His inerrant and infallible Word!!! RUN FROM THESE HERETICS!!! THE LORD JESUS CHRIST DOES NOT CHARGE MONEY FOR ANSWERED PRAYERS OR FOR MIRACLES OR FOR DELIVERANCE!!! HE DID NOT DO IT WHILE HE WAS HERE ON EARTH AND HE IS NOT CHARGING FOR THEM NOW!!!!! THESE HERETICS ARE LYING TO YOU AND THEY ARE ALSO LYING ON THE LORD JESUS TO YOU!!! THEY ARE THE ONES WHO DESIRE TO POCKET YOUR MONEY, BELOVED!!!
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY GOD FOR ANSWERS TO PRAYERS!!! THE LORD JESUS CHRIST NEVER ASKED FOR A SINGLE PENNY BEFORE HEALING AND DELIVERING THE MULTITUDES HE HEALED AND DELIVERED WHILE HERE ON EARTH!!! HE NEVER ASKED FOR A TITHE OR OFFERING BEFORE RAISING THE DEAD!!! BELOVED, HEAR THIS AND HEAR IT WAY DOWN DEEP IN YOUR HEART AND MIND AND SPIRIT.....YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PAY GOD FOR YOUR HEALINGS AND MIRACLES AND DELIVERANCES!!! PAYING GOD MONEY WON'T GET YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS SAVED, EITHER!!! THIS IS HERESY!!! BELOVED, JESUS PAID FOR YOUR ANSWERS TO PRAYER ON THE CROSS OF CALVARY!!! These heretics are spoken of in The Book of Jude among other references in God's inerrant and infallible Word pertaining to deceivers and false teacher and false preachers and false prophets and false miracle-workers, etc.
Are heretical teachings taught only by television "ministers"? Absolutely not!!! In these last days there are many being taught behind pulpits in local "churches"!!! Are apostates only found on television? Absolutely not!!! They, too, are also in many local "churches" in these last days. You MUST read and study The Word of God so that you will know truth from false, Beloved!!!
BEWARE OF FALSE TEACHINGS ABOUT THE BAPTISM OF THE HOLY GHOST!!!
There are many false teachings pertaining to baptism. The false teaching pertaining to the validity of an infant's baptism, of course, is heresy. True repentance for sins is required before baptism in water in the name of Jesus for forgiveness of sin. Infants are not aware of sin and cannot repent of sin. Period. There are many other false teachings pertaining to the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Some denominations state that baptism in water after true repentance before Jesus is merely an ordinance but that baptism in water is not essential to the forgiveness of sins. According to God's Word, this is false. (Acts 2:38) Others teach that one must seek the Holy Ghost baptism after one has repented of one's sins and has asked Jesus to save them followed by water baptism in Jesus' Name. This teaching is not true, either. The Holy Ghost is a gift given freely to every true believer who has truly repented of sin and has been baptized in the Name of Jesus according to God's inerrant and infallible Word. Many in the pentecostal, holiness, charismatic, evangelical, and non-denominational denominations are left pining away and feeling that they are lacking the baptism of The Holy Ghost as a result of false teachings, when, in fact, if they have truly repented of their sin and have been baptized in Jesus' Name, they already have the baptism of The Holy Ghost as is promised in God's Word. It is a sad thing to see. It is also a sad thing to experience....seeking God for that which He has already given. We personally have been in this situation. Praise God for His faithfulness to open the eyes of the blind.
Let us explore what The Bible, God's inerrant and infallible Word, says about repentance and baptism.
"Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." Acts 2:38
The LORD God Almighty Jesus Christ says plainly in Mark 16:16:
"He that BELIEVETH AND IS BAPTIZED shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned."
"AM I BECOME YOUR ENEMY, BECAUSE I TELL YOU THE TRUTH?"
This is NOT a hate site. It is a JESUS LOVE site calling all to true repentance and true salvation of The LORD and ONLY Savior Jesus Christ. It is a site created with the leading of The Holy Ghost to warn others of the wiles of the devil in these last days. Take time to research these things for yourself. Research The Word of God. This is what we have done. Research the apologetic sites. This is our heart's desire for you to discover these things by researching for yourself, Beloved. The Holy Ghost leads to truth. The evidence is ample in amount for you to discover for yourself. Articles, videos, and audios are in abundance. "Living Hope In Jesus" is one of Jesus' love for the lost souls on their way to a devil's eternally-burning hell and it is one of Jesus' love for the many in The Church who are blindly following heretics and apostates away from the true Gospel of The LORD and ONLY Savior Jesus Christ. God is calling for true repentance. He is calling for all of us to return to The LORD Jesus' true Gospel that was first delivered to the saints. We truly believe, based upon God's Own Word, that to know and fail to warn others is to walk hand-in-hand with the heretics and apostates that abound in these last days. Love WARNS! The LORD God Almighty Jesus Christ WARNS! Your eternal soul is at stake and there are many trying to make claims to your soul. Research these things and after you have been shown the truth by The LORD Jesus in His mercy and kindness towards you, run, run, run from them and others who are like them!!! Run to Jesus and His infallible and inerrant Word!!! Get The Bible out and read, read, read, and study, study, study!!! If ANYTHING or ANYONE preaches a message that does not match God's truthful Bible, separate yourself quickly from listening to heresy and apostacy. If someone accuses you of slandering or lying about those discovered by so many to be preaching heresy or apostacy, pray that The Holy Ghost will also lead them to the truth. That truth will ALWAYS be found by comparing the message with The Word of Almighty God. Because God's truth is definitely unwanted by so many (even by so many professing to be Christian), you may have unkind things said to you (as we, too, have occasionally endured). The list of heresies that we have compiled gives a great directive but there are even more and more heresies that are taught in these last days. It is up to each one of us as God's true children to read and study His inerrant and infallible Word. This is how we learn Jesus' truth, Beloved. Anything taught that does not line up with God's Word (The Bible) is heresy. Period. Jesus' truth is not popular among the masses. It is for this reason that His death was sought and secured so many years ago. Beloved, keep this Word from The LORD Jesus in your mind and heart when you are buffetted for His Name's sake.... "Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets." Luke 6:2.
Beloved, it is of utmost importance that we know the true prophets from the false prophets who parade about in these last days in sheep's clothing seeking to deceive and devour. This information is found in God's inerrant and infallible Word. Please click onto "The Marks Of A True Prophet" and begin your study in God's Word pertaining to this very important subject.
FLEE any "church" that teaches idolatry whether by statues, crucifixes, rosaries, etc.
FLEE any "church" that teaches that other religions can reach Heaven without Jesus as their ONLY Lord and eternal Savior.
FLEE any "church" that does not teach true repentance and baptism in the Name of Jesus (as declared by Peter in Acts chapter two) before forgiveness of sins and salvation. Many have substituted the message of true repentance with "having a personal relationship with Jesus" as though He is a "good ole boy" to have a pal relationship with!!! He is GOD!!! He is LORD!!! He is JUDGE!!! Jesus preached true repentance Himself!!! The failure to preach the message of true repentance is sending more people to hell than one could ever imagine!!!
Flee any "church" that refuses to preach about hell. Hell is real. Hell's fire is real. Hell's flames are eternally-burning. Hell is waiting for all who reject The LORD God Jesus Christ and His true Gospel, Beloved. It is a place that you don't want to go!!!
Flee any "church" that refuses to teach about the fear of God Almighty. The Bible clearly says that "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction." (Proverbs 1:7) and The Bible also says "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. (Proverbs 9:10) Again, let us read about what God has to say about those who teach a "fear of God according to the precept of man"!!! "Wherefore The LORD said, Forasmuch as this people draw near Me with their mouth, and with their lips do honor Me, but have removed their heart far from Me, and their fear toward Me is taught by the precept of men, Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid." Isaiah 29: 13-14 Who in their right spiritual mind would refuse to fear The One in Whose hands their very breath abides? Who in their right spiritual mind would refuse to fear The One Who will cast all who reject His beloved Son, The LORD Jesus Christ and His true Gospel, into the eternally-burning flames of hell for all of eternity? Beloved, He is One to fear. He is One to respect. He is One to obey.
FLEE any "church" that teaches and practices infant baptism!!! Do NOT be deceived by this popular man-made doctrine!!! It is devil-breathed from the pits of hell, Beloved!!! This practice does NOT come from the inerrant and infallible Word of The Living God and LORD Jesus Christ!!!
FLEE any "church" that teaches that Israel is no longer the chosen people of God and teach that The Church has replaced Israel in God's eyes. (This is also known as "replacement theology" which is demonic rubbish breathed from the pits of hell and taught under the instruction of the devil himself.) NEVER FORGET that God has promised in His Word that "He will bless those who bless Israel and that He will CURSE those who curse Israel!"...."WE BLESS THEE, O ISRAEL!!! WE BLESS YOU WITH THE ULTIMATE BLESSING AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL OF THE LORD AND ONLY SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!!!" We wish to do our part to teach Jews everywhere about The LORD Jesus Christ!!! Jesus' Name "Christ" means "Messiah". He is The Messiah prophesied of in The Old Testament that would come. The prophecies are rich in describing Jesus' suffering, persecutions, crucifixion, and resurrection. All true Christians are to pray for the peace of Jerusalem and their need to repent of their sins, believe, and be eternally saved by The LORD Jesus Christ. The peace of Jerusalem we are instructed to pray for will come when The LORD Jesus Christ returns at the end of history and sits as King of kings and LORD of lords on His throne in His beloved Jerusalem. The true peace of Jerusalem will never occur before that day. Between now and that day, Israel's judgement for rejecting God and His Son determined by God Almighty is written of plainly in God's inerrant and infallible Word. There is no better way of blessing Israel than to share The Gospel of The LORD Jesus Christ with them. He is indeed The Messiah (Christ) that they have waited so long for. It was for this revelation that He was falsely charged with blasphemy by the Jews to die on that old rugged cross. The Jewish leaders that knew for a fact from the Roman soldiers' report that Jesus had indeed rose from the dead on the third day paid the soldiers money to keep quiet about The LORD Jesus' resurrection from the dead. These Jewish leaders then perpetuated a lie that the disciples of The LORD Jesus Christ had stolen His body from the tomb. This lie has been kept alive by all generations of Jewish teaching since the day of the resurrection of The LORD Jesus Christ. (ALL of this is recorded in God's inerrant and infallible Word.) Beloved, there is coming a day that The LORD Jesus Christ will turn all Jewish hearts to Him when He returns as Eternal King seated on His Throne by God in Jerusalem, God's eternal City...just as He states in His Word. Til then, Jews EVERYWHERE must repent, believe, and be eternally saved by The LORD Jesus Christ or face eternity in hell's eternal flames. It is the job of the true Christian to pray that Christian evangelism in Israel will flourish.
FLEE any "church" that teaches that those committing suicide go to Heaven. NEVER FORGET that 1st John chapter 3 verse 15 says PLAINLY "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that NO MURDERER HATH ETERNAL LIFE ABIDING IN HIM." SUICIDE IS MURDER!!!! If satan ever tempts you with suicide,.....RUN TO JESUS!!!! Satan is after your eternal soul by offering suicide as an option in this life.....RUN!!! RUN!!! RUN TO THE LORD JESUS!!!!
NOTE: IF SATAN HAS TEMPTED (OR IS TEMPTING) YOU WITH SUICIDE OR IF YOU HAVE HAD LOVED ONES DIE FROM SUICIDE, PLEASE SCROLL DOWN THE SITE INDEX AT THE PAGE ENTITLED "SUICIDE:AN INVITATION TO HELL!!! RUN FROM SUICIDE!!! VERY QUICKLY, BELOVED, TURN TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST!!!"
FLEE any "church" doctrine that endorses what the medical world calls "palliative care" for the terminally ill and those with infirmities or in comas if there are medicines and treatments available to help them (and the person wants these medicines and treatments) and it is in your power to help them. Also along these same lines, we are not to talk people into giving up their meds and medical treatments while allowing them to die in pain and suffering while we delude ourselves into thinking that we are showing them "mercy".
These things are usually done for convenience by weary (or greedy) family members while they pat themselves on the back and purposefully deceive themselves into thinking that they have done a kind deed in "mercifully" achieving the legal murders of their family member! With the legal murder of family members for the sake of greed and selfishness, their safety deposit boxes, possessions, bank accounts are easily stolen from while the family members are in the process of dying without medicine, nutrition, and water. They die silently if in comas. No one hears their screams. No one hears their cries of heartbreak as they come face to face with the true desires of such greedy and self-serving family members. They leave this world knowing.....and The LORD Jesus also knows.
There are adult children doing this to parents.... doing this to parents that would have walked their last mile on this earth in order to give these adult children their very last breath! So many times, the very parents who fed them and clothed them joyfully from the time they entered the world are the very ones left to die without water, medicine, and nutrition. The very same parents who so sweetly and tenderly sang "Happy Birthday" to a child is silenced by the very same child (or children) they had sung to on the child's birthday each year. There are wives doing this to their husbands! There are husbands doing this to their wives! There are parents doing this to their own children! They (and others) go so far to define "quality of life" while GOD ALONE defines "quality of life". (It is worth noting that Adolph Hitler started out his murderous rampage doing the very same thing. He chose the infirmed and mentally retarded, etc. to legally murder! He, too, took it upon himself to define "quality of life"!) Parents, children, and spouses (or others) being legally murdered by children, parents, and spouses (or others) by these means in the United States and around the world is something devil-breathed from the pits of hell!!!
GOD IS NOT INTO "MERCY KILLING"!!!!! HEAR THOSE WORDS DOWN DEEP IN YOUR HEART......."GOD IS NOT INTO "MERCY KILLING"!!!! FOR THIS "MERCY KILLING", GOD'S HOT ANGER AND JUDGMENT FALLS AND FALLS QUICKLY UPON THOSE WHO DO THESE THINGS!!!
FLEE any "church" that teaches the comfort message of secular humanism.
FLEE any "church" that teaches that God is a "she".
FLEE any "church" that teaches that Mary is a co-redeemer with Jesus Christ (she is also called "mediatrix"by these false teachers.)
FLEE any "church" that condones the godless abominations such as homosexuality, the present-day human holocaust of abortion (the merciless murder of unborn babies!), the theory of evolution, stem cell research, cloning, etc.
FLEE any "church" that teaches a "works" salvation.
FLEE any "church" that encourage prayers to the dead (examples would include Mary, Jude, etc., etc., etc.).
FLEE any "church" that encourages you to believe in a lie called "purgatory" for it does not exist and teachings about this fictitious purgatory did not exist in Catholic teachings til added by men.....it is a devilish man-made doctrine!
FLEE any "church" that teaches that the dead live among us in spirit. THIS IS A LIE FROM THE PITS OF HELL!!!
FLEE any "church" that teaches that it is o.k. to "talk" to dead relatives, etc. at their gravesites, or to photos of the dead, etc. etc. etc. GOD IN HIS INERRANT AND INFALLIBLE WORD STATES PLAINLY THAT THIS IS ABOMINATION!!! IT IS SPIRITISM!!!
FLEE any "church" that encourages you to give money to God in order to obtain salvation for loved ones, etc., etc......
The list of heresies and blasphemies taught from pulpits seems endless!!!!! We MUST flee from these things. In fact, if we TRULY love JESUS, we WILL flee these things.
Spiritual Babylon is a spiritual harlot that is alive and well in this last days generation. Many Christians have been lulled spiritually asleep particularly in the United States while wallowing in their "church" and personal wealth, fame, and pursuit of this world's goods and this world's image. They call their sleep-state as "resting in The LORD" and their covetousness is cloaked under "we are blessed by The LORD", etc. etc. etc. They live covetous lives. They find scriptures to back up their covetousness. They teach others to covet "in the Name of The LORD" (of course!!!). Satan has wages he is glad to pay anyone to serve him instead of Jesus. He will gladly make anyone rich in order to walk them in their slumber into the pits of hell. He will gladly listen to his evil doings called "blessings from The LORD Jesus" if he can but only lead one into spiritual suicide.
Satan has evil desires for the souls of Christians AND the unsaved, Beloved!!!
Did you know that THE TRUE AUTHOR of the "Harry Potter" book series and the true author behind all horror books, horror movies, ungodly songs, ungodly movies, ungodly books, etc., IS SATAN HIMSELF??? He truly desires your eternal soul with him in hell for all of eternity. Yes, Beloved, the designer of the day of Halloween (which is the highest day in satanism) and ALL ungodly devices desires your screams along with him in an eternal hell-fire. We MUST flee these things!!!
GET THESE EVIL ITEMS OUT OF YOUR HOME!!!
Destroy all horror books, all horror movies, all ungodly music, all ungodly movies, all ungodly books, all cult literature and items, all new age literature and new age items, all catholic images, all occult literature and items, all "christian" music and literature, etc. that contain false doctrines, all pornographic or sexually provocative material in any form, all "Dungeon and Dragons" books and games and evil video games!!! Get rid of "Harry Potter" books and toys, etc., and items and books similar to Potter. These things invite evil spirits that thrive in such an ungodly environment!!! Ask The LORD Jesus to guide you as you seek out the cursed items in your home to destroy. He will help you. He is faithful.
There is a video and dvd set that is available for purchase from "Fight The Good Fight Ministries" that takes an in-depth look at rock and roll and its demonic roots. The name of the video and dvd set is "They Sold Their Souls For Rock And Roll". It is invaluable to have, view, study, and then share with youth groups, etc. Many have been turned from the evils of rock and roll after viewing this expose'. It is absolutely excellent!
Destroy also any "Purpose Driven Life" materials for the "purpose" behind such is NOT of The LORD Jesus!!! It is secular humanism cloaked under The Name of The LORD Jesus!!!
Rid your home of (what is called) "The Star of David". It's origins are from the time of Solomon when he worshiped false gods instead of The LORD God Almighty Jesus Christ. There is much to read about it on the internet. Read it and rid yourself of this abomination!!! It is of great interest that the nation of Israel that rejected and killed Jesus carries as its emblem the very sign of the occult of their ancient history.
If you are into secret groups such as the Masons, the Illuminati, the Knights of Templar, the Club of Rome, the Eastern Star, Skull and Crossbones, etc., etc., etc., very quickly fall upon your knees and truly repent before The LORD God Almighty Jesus Christ and get out of the group as fast as you can!!! Those involved in such groups are in satanist groups. This is abomination. Run!!! Run!!! Run!!! Run!!! Run!!! Get all of the written materials, etc., out of your home!!! These items are cursed!!!
To those in countries that have witch doctors, voodoo, etc., RUN, RUN, RUN from these agents of satan himself!!! Run!!! Burn all items pertaining to these abominable practices!!!
Don't ever think for even one single moment that satan will awaken anyone out of their spiritual slumber. He is in delight to see Christians spiritually asleep. Yes, Beloved, spiritual Babylon is "alive and well" in this last days Church age. God tells us to "Come out of her, my people, and I will receive you." Jesus warns us that He will be returning for us "at a time you think NOT." He also tells us plainly to stay spiritually AWAKE lest He return and He find us spiritually sleeping.
WILL THERE BE A RAPTURE OF LIVING AND DEAD CHRISTIANS BEFORE THE TRIBULATION?
THE LORD JESUS CHRIST DESCRIBED THE LAST DAYS AND THE END OF THE WORLD SEVERAL TIMES IN THE GOSPELS. IN HIS DISCOURSE REGARDING THE LAST DAYS AND THE END OF THE WORLD IN LUKE (CHAPTER 21), HE COMMANDED HIS TRUE CHILDREN TO "WATCH THEREFORE, AND PRAY ALWAYS, THAT YE MAY BE ACCOUNTED WORTHY TO ESCAPE ALL OF THESE THINGS THAT SHALL COME TO PASS AND TO STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN." (LUKE 21:36)
BECAUSE THE TEACHING OF A PRE-TRIBULATION RAPTURE DID NOT COME INTO BEING UNTIL JOHN NELSON DARBY INTRODUCED THE RAPTURE DOCTRINE IN 1832 (AND SUCH A RAPTURE DOCTRINE WAS NOT TAUGHT BY THE EARLY CHURCH NOR WAS IT TAUGHT BY GOD'S FINEST PREACHERS SUCH AS CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON, ETC.), WE, UPON REVIEW AND INTENSE STUDY OF GOD'S INERRANT AND INFALLIBLE WORD, ARE NOT SURE IF THIS WILL OCCUR PRE-TRIBULATION IN THE MANNER IN WHICH IT HAS BEEN TAUGHT SINCE 1832. WE ARE, HOWEVER, FAITHFULLY PRAYING THAT THE LORD JESUS WILL FIND US WORTHY TO ESCAPE THE THINGS COMING UPON THE WORLD AND TO STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN. WHETHER THE LORD JESUS WAS SPEAKING OF ESCAPING BY HIM CALLING US OUT BY DEATH, WE DON'T KNOW. WE ARE PRAYING TO MAKE IT OUT OF THIS WORLD JUST AS HE HAS TOLD US TO PRAY. EITHER WAY, IT WILL INDEED BE A RAPTURE!!!
AS THE WORLD LEFT BEHIND WREAKS IN ANGUISH AND TERROR AND DESPAIR DURING THE TRIBULATION DAYS OF GOD'S WRATH, TROUBLES WILL BE OVER. GOD HIMSELF SHALL WIPE AWAY EVERY TEAR FROM OUR EYES!!!
PLEASE, Beloved, DO NOT BE LEFT BEHIND!!! CONCENTRATE ON AND SEEK ONLY THE ONE WHO LEFT HEAVEN AND CLOTHED HIMSELF IN FLESH IN ORDER TO DIE FOR YOU AS THE SPOTLESS SINLESS SON OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD. JESUS IS WORTHY OF YOUR ATTENTION. HE IS THE ONLY ONE WORTHY OF YOUR ATTENTION. HE IS TRULY ALL THAT YOU HAVE. HE IS ALL THAT WE HAVE. HE IS ALL THAT THERE IS TO HAVE. Click onto "How Can I Be Eternally Saved By The LORD Jesus?" and find out how to become a child of The Almighty God by The LORD Jesus. BE ETERNALLY SAVED BY THE LORD JESUS CHRIST TODAY. DO NOT PUT IT OFF ANOTHER SECOND. THAT SECOND MAY BE ALL YOU HAVE LEFT ON THIS EARTH.
The Bible clearly says that The LORD's portion is His people (read a glorious sermon by Brother Stephen Richie on this very subject) and we are as the Levites were.....The LORD is OUR portion. His true children need nothing else. The Bible CLEARLY tells us to be content with food and raiment. He will take care of us just as He so sweetly and tenderly cares for the little sparrows. Jesus said that we are worth more than many little sparrows! We came into this world with nothing of this world's goods and we will leave it the same way. When we leave it, however, we will leave with The Treasure we were sent here to find....JESUS....if we will but endure til the end. Jesus is fully able to make us spiritually strong enough to do exactly that through God's precious Holy Ghost dwelling within us as true Christians and true children of The Almighty God. He DELIGHTS in helping us as we call out to Him in spirit and truth.
The LORD Jesus has promised us that He will NEVER leave us and He will NEVER EVER forsake us. LET US MAKE SURE THAT WE DO NOT LEAVE HIM AND FORSAKE HIM! THE COST IS TOO HIGH TO LOSE HEAVEN FOR MORSELS OF THIS WORLD'S WEALTH AND EVIL UNGODLY WAYS!!!! HIS NAME IS TOO PRECIOUS TO DEFACE AND DEFAME IN THIS OLD EVIL UNGODLY CONDEMNED WORLD!!!!
A SPECIAL WORD TO OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN OTHER NATIONS AROUND THE WORLD WHO ARE SUFFERING FOR THE SAKE OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST AND HIS EVERLASTING GOSPEL
To those Christians in other countries who are suffering the horror-filled pains of persecution, rejection, imprisonment, torture, please KNOW that Jesus LOVES you and He is WITH you in your sufferings for His precious Name's sake. The agony of living through the intense sorrow of losing loved ones as martyrs for Jesus would be unbearable for you if it were not for the comfort that The Holy Ghost ALONE gives to you. Martyrdom and it's horror-filled grief is documented in a documentary that we own called "A Cry From Iran". It was written and produced by two of the sons of Martyr Bishop Haik Hovsepian. Beloved Bishop Hovsepian was murdered for the sake of The LORD Jesus Christ in Iran. Dear and faithful servants of The Most High God and LORD Jesus Christ, we love you. We appreciate you. You deserve great honor. We pray for you. We have many Pastors writing to us that live in countries wherein lies much persecution of Christians. We do all we can in Jesus to encourage and comfort each one. Please write to us anytime. You are in our hearts. Please stay strong in Jesus as He stayed strong for you and for us. Your light of Jesus is shining brightly in the darkness around you. You are used by God as an inspiration for the rest of God's true born-again children. God shows to us a reality about Himself through you that we probably would not be able to realize first-hand unless we were to be in the same situation as you are in. You are Jesus' disciples. You are the "Pauls", "Peters", etc., of this present time in history. God is well-pleased with you. His favor and grace rests upon you in abundance. The LORD Jesus Christ, The Almighty God, has PROMISED you that He will NEVER leave you and He will NEVER, EVER forsake you. NEVER!!! As America falls shortly, true Christians here in the USA will likely join your ranks as the onslaught begins against God's true born-again children. May we stand as you are standing. May God be well-pleased with us as He is with you. We love you, Precious Ones. How we truly love you. How we truly thank you for your example of true love and true labor and service to The LORD Jesus Christ.
May we prayerfully and dutifully and faithfully prepare ourselves for the return of our soon-coming King.....THE LORD JESUS!!!!
To both the saved and unsaved we proclaim to you that Jesus LOVES you and we love you, too.
TRULY, BELOVED, THERE IS LIVING HOPE IN JESUS!!!!! BLESSED BE HIS HOLY NAME BOTH NOW AND FOREVERMORE!!!
BLESSED BE THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.
HIS IS THE NAME ABOVE ALL NAMES....JESUS!!!!!
Sincerely in The LORD and ONLY Savior Jesus Christ,
Evangelist Stephen Richie

For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. Eph. 2:8-10

A WORD FROM EVANGELIST STEPHEN RICHIE TO THE MANY BELOVED BROTHERS AND SISTERS AROUND THE WORLD INVITING US TO PREACH IN THEIR VARIOUS COUNTRIES
To those of you from counties that have invited us to visit and preach at your Churches, Church gatherings, and Church seminars, my wife and I thank you so very much for these invitations to us. To those of you who so lovingly bless us as "Dad and Mom" around the world, know that we love you, too. Perhaps The LORD Jesus will grant these requests to visit with you in His time. Til we meet you in your nations or till we meet you in the air to meet The LORD Jesus, please know that we love each and every one of you. You are in our hearts and prayers. Stand ever so strong for The LORD Jesus as His lights in this dark, sin-filled, unholy, ungodly, hell-bound world. HE IS WITH YOU, BROTHERS AND SISTERS!!!
In Christ Jesus' love and service,
Evangelist Stephen Richie
He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength. Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall: But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.
If it had not been the LORD who was on our side, when men rose up against us:Then they had swallowed us up quick, when their wrath was kindled against us:Then the waters had overwhelmed us, the stream had gone over our soul: Then the proud waters had gone over our soul. Blessed be the LORD, who hath not given us as a prey to their teeth. Our soul is escaped as a bird out of the snare of the fowlers: the snare is broken, and we are escaped. Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth.
Our instructions from The LORD God Almighty Jesus Christ:
And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new.
And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
GOD'S FINAL WARNING!!!
THERE IS NO CHANCE IN ETERNITY TO CHANGE YOUR DESTINY!!
