Return to the Father's Heart
So the Earth Will Survive
Robert B. Scott

Return to the Father’s Heart

This crucial book will pave the way for the of coming Elijah of Malachi 4:5-6, who is prophesied to bring today’s absent fathers toward their neglected or jettisoned children and bring the heart of believers back to their Father in heaven. The book offers a solution to a pervasive problem among men today: their inability to forgive abusive fathers. This modern-day Elijah will “restore all things” (Mat. 17:11), including the true gospel of the Kingdom or Family of God, revealing the dangerous error of the grace revolution leading to the appearance of the man of lawlessness, an evil leader who will fight the second coming of Jesus.

Why Joseph Prince Told a “White Christmas” Lie on His TV Broadcast Today? Pastor Robert Scott

Will you swallow the lie I swallowed years ago? It’s one of the many lies of this popular grace revolution, which is in reality a grace rebellion against the laws of love of our God of love. These laws are the basis of the Kingdom of God, which is the only true gospel. Jesus preached it, and so did Paul! It’s a lie that is all too common in the Christian world. It involves pretending you know the Hebrew when what you say contradicts the plain Word of God. This lie even contradicts the very theme verse of this grace revolution, John 1:17. What is this dangerous lie? It involves the meaning of the Hebrew word chesed. It even involves the pagan celebrations of December 25! Yes, pagan celebrations! Read more…

I always assumed commentators were right in declaring that chesed meant grace, but that contradicts the clear words of John 1:17. In other words, the grace revolution proponents are contradicting their very them verse and adding to their schizophrenic declarations about the subject of grace. The verse says that the law came through Moses (which of course came directly to Moses through God, who was the One who became Jesus).

Remember the last part of that verse: grace and truth came through Jesus Christ when He came as a man. So God is saying there was no real grace in the First Testament, which is a favorite argument of the grace revolution.

Was there mercy? Of course. God is a God of mercy. But grace or the empowerment to obey the laws of love God gave in the Hebrew Scriptures came through Jesus when He came in the flesh as a man to die for us.

They are stretching it. Because they believe so firmly in this false grace doctrine, they try to say it’s been there all along in the Bible. But it hasn’t! They simply want it to be true so they can pretend that the same God has always been a God of grace.

Why would God say, “O, that there were such a heart in them, that they would love Me and keep My commandments, “ my paraphrase of Deuteronomy 5:29?

The simple answer is that Jesus, who is the Word who spoke the Ten Commandments, was saying this: I am Grace with a capital G. I’m coming to die for your sins, your breaking of My law, and to then live within you so you have the power to change the focus from “Thou shalt not…” to  “Love does not….”

The grace revolutionists don’t like that focus because they want you to see the law as bad, not good. Yet God says the law is good throughout the Bible. He never puts a bad spin on His commandments as the grace people do, as Joseph Prince has done on his broadcast today, Thursday, December 18.

We must challenge him. His statement contradicts his own theme verse of John 1:17. He’s taking away what makes Jesus different in the New Testament than in the “old,” which is not old at all.

How could Jesus come to bring grace if it already existed? How could the law be in our hearts unless Jesus, Grace personified, is now in our hearts (Jeremiah 31 and Hebrews 8). If you read those two chapters together, you will understand what grace is.

Grace is having Jesus in your heart so His laws that He gave long ago will be in your heart. You now have the empowerment, the grace, to perform what your flesh can’t.

You will understand that the whole Bible is to be observed by the power of Jesus or grace within us.

A believer will have the strength to buck the crowd and stop keeping the pagan holidays like Christmas that have been baptized Christian when Jesus never did!

They will actually have the power to obey the last few verses of Deuteronomy 12 and the clear verses of Jeremiah 10 that gives a surprisingly accurate description of the Christmas tree!

I takes courage to go against the mainstream. “But everybody who’s anybody keeps Christmas! You must be in a cult.” No. It takes courage and Grace to keep God’s laws, even His unpopular laws.

Will you have the courage and the grace to come out of the world to obey God this December 25? The good news is the grace to keep the laws of the Kingdom of God came with Jesus, and He lives in you! You can do it!

 

 



God’s Times to Ask When, Why, and How Long, God? Pastor Robert Scott

God’s Times to Ask When, Why, and How Long, God?

 Millions of Christians are keeping Christmas again this year. But are these God’s times of celebration and introspection? When Jesus returns, He will command all mankind to keep the Sabbath and the new moons (Isa. 66:23). This is a secret Christians don’t know. There is another secret they don't know. They don't know when to complain and wrestle with God. There is a time for everything and a time to pour out our hearts before God. Most psalms of David were written on the Sabbath and the new moons. Asaph asked some troubling questions on the new moon. Why do others prosper when I have to go through these trials (Psalm 73)? Why are true Christians being persecuted and heavily tried when nominal Christians are being blessed? Stay tuned for the surprising answer…Read more…

Asaph understood the answers to his troubling questions when he entered the sanctuary of God on the new moon after he had wrestled with God about these questions (Ps. 73:17).

 Why is a congregation that has so much truth being tested and tried? Why does God allow its leading lady to pass away? Two of our deaconesses have passed away recently. Why?

 Is it like some Canadians are saying at the passing of Myles Monroe? Is it true that God took him? No, it's not. Satan took him and Satan took our deaconesses. God didn't cause it but He allowed it. He knows the end from the beginning. He knew certain congregations would be in disunity, which would allow Satan to have his way.

 After believers pass critical tests of maturity, Satan tries to take them out and he can succeed unless the congregation is in unity and speaking the right words. Wrong words can cause pain and even death (Prov. 18:21).

 The righteous man or woman is sometimes taken out to escape the evil to come (Isa. 57:1). They still have work to do, but they had passed important tests and God knew they were ready to go if Satan did take them.

 Should we ask God why? Yes, but there is a proper time and procedure for everything (Eccl. 8:6). When believers ask the whys and the whens of God at the wrong time, they can cause death. They can easily accuse the brethren. When they ask those difficult questions at the new moon, they often get God's secret answers to satisfy their curiosity.

 Knowing why God does things gives great assurance and confidence. While many Christians want to remain ignorant of those answers, others press on and find the answers as they wrestle with God on the new moon.

Why do we have to observe Satan’s days instead of God's days? When Jesus returns for a thousand years of peace, those who don't keep His days will be deprived of rain. If you keep Christmas, you'll go dry. Why can't we keep God's days and know God's secrets that He offers to His servants?

Jesus, as well as all the apostles, including Paul, kept the days ordained as God's days in Leviticus 23 (Acts 24:14).  We would have less and less questions and more and more answers from God if we did. We would be much merrier if we abandoned Christmas for the joy of Jesus received on His days.


Changing Your World? Or Changing Your Word? Pastor Robert Scott

Changing Your World? Or Changing Your Word?

 It is with sadness that we acknowledge the changes in the Changing Your World TV broadcast. We have learned much in the past from them. However, the change to the grace revolution has caused us to write an e-book on the subject, available on our bookstore tab at http://www.freedomchurchofgod.com/BOOKSTORE.aspx#.VI4Vglpd0zA.  We must begin to wonder whether it’s Changing Your World or Changing Your Word, referring to God’s Word. Saying the law is done away contradicts the meaning of the whole Bible. This is a dangerous trend, the end-time falling away, leading to the man of lawlessness.

 People have always tried to twist Romans 14, but now that the belief that the Ten Commandments are done away has caused ease at misinterpreting Romans 14.

 Our e-book gives what we believe is the most thorough refutation of this apostasy. However, new twists arrive every day as they come up with new heresies continually.

 When you understand the true gospel of the Kingdom of God, you can easily see that a kingdom requires a King and laws. You can’t be part of the Kingdom if you refuse the true grace that empowers you to keep the laws of the Kingdom.

 The clear verses that stand out to me in refuting the Romans 14 twist are Acts 24:14 and Acts 10:14 and 28. That’s because people want to apply Romans 14 to the Sabbath and the eating of pork, which is not the context at all. It's a matter of fasting on certain days of the week and abstaining from meats, eating only vegetables.

 In these verses of Acts, Peter made it clear that ten years after accepting Jesus, he still refrained as a Christian from eating unclean foods such as pork. Gentiles were now declared clean, but not unclean meats. Regarding the Sabbath question, Paul clearly stated in Acts 24:14 and 25:8 that he had never committed an offense against the law of the First Testament, which included the Sabbath, one of the very important Ten Commandments.

 To explain further, we quote an excerpt from Bible Code Broken! …

 

…………

Chapter 26: The Romans 14 Contortion -- or "the Sabbath Side Step"

 

            The terrible twists get worse. This is a desperate dance. It’s also called, “Looking for a way out of keeping the Sabbath,” a.k.a. the Sabbath Side Step.

Paul talks about days, but he never mentions the Sabbath in Romans 14. Yet many Christians believe that Romans 14:5-6 is proof Paul did not tell Gentiles to keep the Sabbath and that the days we keep are not an area in which we should be judged. The context is about eating meats or being vegetarian. The Didache supports the inference that specific days for fasting were involved. This early Christian guide to holiness says, “But not let our fasts be with the hypocrites, for they fast on the second and fifth day of the week. Rather, fast on the fourth day and the Preparation (Friday)” (Chapter 8).

            Eating habits and the way and times that we fast are intensely personal matters. Paul did not and the church should not legislate in these areas. On the other hand, which day we keep is not a private matter, although in some circumstances it may be. It is a public decision practiced corporately and this was the case with the organized church at Rome. Church leaders make such a decision, preferably according to the Word.

Paul writes: “Now I exhort you, brethren…that you all agree and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be made complete in the same mind and in the same judgment” (I Cor.1:10). In this same letter Paul said, “Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new lump [spiritually], just as you are in fact unleavened [already, because you have put away leavened bread in preparation for the feast]. For Christ our Passover has been sacrificed. Therefore let us celebrate the feast, not with old leaven…but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth”(I Cor. 5:7-8).

The same apostle that spoke of “the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace” and encouraged the understanding that we are one body, one Spirit, with “one faith [set of beliefs]” (Eph. 4:3-5) commanded Corinthians to keep the Feast of Unleavened Bread. If they kept the high days or annual Sabbaths and were physically unleavened at feast time, they obviously kept the weekly Sabbath.

“Each person must be fully convinced in his own mind” (Rom. 14:5). Could this refer to whether we keep the fourth commandment or not?  What about the sixth commandment? If you are not convinced in your own mind that it is wrong to murder, does that mean you can put a bullet in someone you don't like? Why do we sidestep the Sabbath but dance to the tune of all the other commandments?

None of the Ten Commandments, including the Sabbath, are directly in question in Romans 14. While it is helpful for a believer to be "convinced in his own mind" about the Sabbath truth before keeping it, obeying what you see in the Word will add greater understanding (Ps. 111:10). The Holy Spirit leads us into all truth (John 16:13) and it is His job, not ours, to convict you of the Sabbath truth. It is nevertheless the truth, whether you agree with it or not.

Paul is giving guidelines here about matters that are private and not always spelled out in the Scripture. The Sabbath is spelled out. If the Holy Spirit doesn’t tell us, would not common sense tell us what Paul was not saying? He was not saying that it doesn’t matter which day we keep as holy to God. God never said all days were holy and that we could choose any day to keep, that all days were alike to Him as far as corporate worship is concerned. He said He made the seventh day holy – no other. He ordained holy convocations on the seventh day and on no other day.

We may wisely do our best to avoid offending others by the manner in which we keep the Sabbath day. The day we choose, however, is not up for discussion. It does matter to God. He did not suggest that we make up our minds which day was holy. He commanded us to remember the seventh day (Ex. 20:8,10). It is not called the day of the Jews but the Sabbath of the Eternal – the Sabbath of Jesus. And don’t forget…He, Jesus, is the One who said, “Remember.”

Everyone can be convinced in his own mind whether he eats meat or is vegetarian. Each Christian can decide to drink wine or be a teetotaler, to choose to fast on the first Monday of every month or every other Tuesday or simply fast when he feels the need. We don’t judge our brothers in these personal matters. We don’t condemn them for not keeping the Sabbath either. The question of whether Christians should or should not keep the fourth commandment is not a matter that is decided by any individual. God has already said it. His Word is law. He cannot alter the utterance of His lips. And He will not change the time of the Sabbath no matter how many twisted arguments religious people invent.

……….

 

We pray that you will understand that the Bible never sends mixed messages. Its theme message of the Kingdom is the same throughout, and the laws never change. They are only written on our hearts and we keep both the letter and the spirit or intent of God’s law, which are always an expression of love. Love is never done away!

 


Perplexing Reaction to Co-Worker Charlene Bishop

I was talking to a co worker yesterday about a young boy that did something wrong and is now in trouble with the law. My co-worker has a personal connection with the victim of this young boy.  When my co worker started crying about the pain the victim was feeling it made me very annoyed.  I was perplexed at why my co workers sensitivity to the victim would cause me to be annoyed.  It bothered me so much it was hard to get to sleep and I woke up thinking about the situation.  I had no peace.  The answer I received is that because there are people in my life who believe I am unworthy of forgiveness it has caused a bitterness in me.  That bitterness and pain in me met the unforgiveness/bitterness my co-worker has for the young boy.  My co-worker believes that because of what this young boy has done he is unworthy of forgiveness just like those in my life believe I am unworthy of forgiveness.  I thank Jesus for the empowerment to lay down the pain of being deemed unworthy of forgiveness, unworthy of compassion, of a new day, of being listened to and heard.  Thank you Jesus that you see me worthy of forgiveness and that You give me a new day.  Thank you Father for blessing that young boy and all individuals involved with the gift of forgiveness so that the destruction can stop now before more are hurt and injured.  Unforgiveness is like you drinking arsenic and then expecting the other person to die.


Rebirth of a Blog (Revised) Pastor Robert Scott

Greetings from pastor and author Robert B. Scott of www.freedomchurchofgod.com … We have had the most popular church blog on the web a few years ago, and I had the blessing of hosting it. Now, however, our site had to switch to requiring an email to sign in, which meant no one wanted to sign in and we got only views. My goal is to continue the blog in a new way, putting the identical blog on my personal author’s site, www.robertbscott.org. I just found out that the new blog requires emails, and it looks doubtful if this could be changed, so I ask for your trust in this area.

I want to start recording my progress. As I see the false gospel of grace fills the airwaves and is adopted by many Christians and pastors, it’s sad to see so few teaching the true gospel, the one Jesus preached, the gospel of the kingdom, which is the one He said would be preached in these last days before the end of the age comes (Mat. 24:14). How can this gospel be preached?

The key, I believe, is the Internet, succeeding in marketing the true gospel on the web.  It may seem strange to quote this verse but it is indeed true: “…money is the answer to everything” (Eccl. 10:19). Now we must take that in the biblical context, that God is giving us “power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant …” (Deut. 8:18), and to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added to us  (Mat. 6:33).

God has blessed me to travel to Africa, to Kenya and to French Benin to minister and to meet pastors and help and hug orphans, and my heart is to help them. My goals are big. The main goal is to publish the gospel of the Kingdom before the end comes (Mat. 24:14) and a famine of the true Word arrives (Amos 8:11).

The worldwide web appears to be a good way to get the gospel of the Kingdom to the world as the time closes in. Yet succeeding online is a great challenge where only three percent of marketers succeed, and they tend to take advantage of the 97% of those who fail, as they continually buy from the successful ones without succeedin

As we endeavor to succeed, we must forgive those sometimes unscrupulous marketers, who have given selling online a bad name, causing many to be prejudiced against Internet marketing in general. We must learn to also forgive those many as we succeed in our struggle to be established online.

 Forgiveness is so important in the Kingdom of God. If we don’t forgive, the King Himself can’t forgive us (Mat. 6:15). I have learned through the ravages of unforgiveness in my life to say by God’s grace, “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.”

Few marketers of integrity exist, and when you finally find them, and they do indeed exist, you are so thankful. Learning to be ready to forgive, including to forgive those who put all marketers in the same boat is important, as you will see in my future membership site and on my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/godsfruitofforgiveness?ref=hl and https://www.facebook.com/pages/Learning-How-to-Forgive/161059237352045?ref=hl.

God blessed us with a relative who provided the funds to start a business and get a mentor. We realized it was the Shemitah year, and though we couldn’t predict what God would bring as a judgment on our Western nations, we needed to prepare for the fall of 2015 with the idea this may be the last year to preach the true gospel.

So the goal is great, to make $10,000 a month in within six months, and a million for Africa by the fall.  The challenges are great, but the determination is there to succeed despite the odds. The journey begins with the effort to preach the gospel of the Kingdom and disciple believers. We’ll keep you posted as we progress.

The prospects of preaching the true gospel of the Kingdom when the Christian world is embracing a false gospel of grace are indeed challenging. Satan attacks the truth. The devil managed to take out one of those eloquent Kingdom preachers in the recent decease in a plane crash of Myles Munroe.

When a believer successfully goes through important tests, Satan often tries to take him or her out. God often has to allow such tragedies because of disunity or unforgiveness in the congregation. We must also forgive our perfect God for allowing bad things to happen in our lives and our assemblies as we endeavor to achieve that perfect unity.

Satan has attacked us this last year in several devastating ways, one financial. God got us through the valley by His great mercy and grace, and we are ready to succeed, having learned what didn’t work.

As the author of seven books and a student of the Bible for fifty years, I think God has given me a lot to offer you, and I welcome your Bible questions as we interact. You can post questions and comments, which I realize now require you to post your email so we can have a give and take. I will not share your email with others, but will only use it so we can communicate and create a dialogue. I’m here to give value, and I welcome you to my blog with great joy. Pastor and author Robert B. Scott



Millions Hear the Lies—How Many Will View the Truth? Pastor Robert Scott

Creflo Dollar preached false grace again today on his telecast. He actually admitted that the man of Matthew 19:17 and following verses broke the first commandment. But we were told the law was done away and the Ten Commandments as well. Why the contradiction? The answer is that when you are in a web of lies, contradictions are inevitable. Jesus clear answer to the man's question, "What do I DO to have eternal life?" Jesus didn't say, "It's not about right doing. It's about right believing." He said, "if you will enter into live, keep the commandments." It became obvious he had broken the first commandment, and Jesus said, "If you love Me, keep My commandments" (John 14:15). Grace revolutionists have to do some fancy dancing to get around the clear statements of Jesus in both the First Testament and the New Testament. When we have to challenge the contradictory statements of the grace revolution, how many views do we get? Broad is the way that leads to death, and narrow is the way that leads to life in the midst of this end-time lawlessness. Religious deception, the white horse of Revelation 6, is riding, and some are galloping with it to miss out on the better resurrection (Heb. 11:35; Rev. 20:5-6). Will you be the bride that rides with Jesus when He returns to fight those who fight Him and His laws along with the man of lawlessness, or will you ride with religious deception? The "exciting grace revolution" is a broad and dangerous road. Be part of the remnant who kept the commandments of God. Love Jesus by keeping His commandments. Don't be deceived!


Religious Deception is the Only Horseman Riding! Pastor Robert Scott

Revelation 6 speaks of four horsemen riding in the last days. Many assume ebola signals the riding of the horse of pestilence. But no! Only one horseman is riding. It's thanks to the grace revolution, the beginning of the end-time, great falling away, leading to the appearance of the man of lawlessness. Jesus loves the teachers who teach it, but He hate lawlessness! Matthew 5:19 is clear. God's law was never and never will be done away. It represents His character of love. Doing away with the laws of love is tantamount to doing away with Love Himself. He is Love. And He is grieved at this apostasy sounds so good, but it will lead many to miss out on the first and best resurrection to marry Jesus. Don't fall for it!


Only One Horseman is Riding? Which Is It? Pastor Robert Scott

It's difficult to have a dialogue with readers when they are afraid to put in their emails to respond to questions on the blog. We are working on a plan that, unlike most ministries now, doesn't require readers to post their emails to dialogue with us. For the time being we are locked into this system, which requires you to give your email address to respond. We hope some will endeavour to answer our question, which we will reveal shortly.


Unclear Passages? Or Verses That Don’t Agree with Your Belief? Pastor Robert Scott

The proponents of the grace revolution are now saying that that there are many verses that don’t agree with their doctrine, passages they call “unclear.” They must find a way to explain these parts of the Bible. Why not just reinterpret the whole Bible, since Jesus tells us to live by every Word of God? Why not proclaim the whole purpose or counsel of God as Paul did (Acts 20:27). The word “purpose’ is translated “counsel” in the KJV, and it comes from a word meaning “to will.” God’s whole will is expressed in the whole Bible. The grace revolution is taking the parts it likes and excluding virtually the whole Bible, which makes it abundantly clear God’s boundaries of love are to be obeyed, with God’s help of course, which is the grace that is Jesus in us. The Bible interprets itself. It’s like a puzzle that needs a key to explain it. That key is the Sabbath day. Those who obey those laws they say are done away are those who understand the Word (Ps. 111:10). They are willing to obey every Word of God, not just the ones they like. God makes it clear what He thinks of those who teach lawlessness (Mat. 5:19). Will you be lawless or obedient?


We Love You, Pastor Prince, But You Are Wrong! Pastor Robert Scott
We Love You, Pastor Prince, But You Are Wrong!

Today Pastor Joseph Prince made a sincere error in trying to justify his position. He said that the word MAN on Acts 5:1, referring to Ananias, was in italics and thus wasn't in the Greek text. We found the Greek word in Strong's, so the word wasn't in italics but was let in the text because it is a Greek work meaning MAN. The context contradicts Prince's contention that Ananias was an unbeliever. Can and does God strike people dead on occasion for lying to the Holy Spirit? Yes, the passage says He does, and a believer would be even more responsible for not lying to God. Why try to water down God's judgment? He is God, and He always judges justly. To imply that He doesn't is mocking Him.Why mock God by trying to defend an unbiblical gospel of grace?
