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.

Confession of Sin Pastor Robert Scott

Confession of sin is a principle expressed throughout the Bible. Today, October 22, 2015, Joseph Prince stated on his TV program once again that confession of sin in First John 1:9-10 was a verse meant for Jews who had adopted a certain Gnostic heresy, whereas chapter 2 explained that we were already forgiven in any case. While Prince said he does confess sin, the implication was that it wasn’t really necessary.

In fact, that is the only conclusion you can draw since they say the law is done away. The law defines sin, so without law, no sin exists. So why even bother to confess it? And why twist the Scriptures to say that First John 1:9-10 doesn’t apply to believers? Jesus told us clearly to live by every Word of God, not to explain away an important principle taught throughout the Bible, which is confession of sin.

Believers still miss the mark and sin, so we must confess those sins to God. David, a man after God’s own heart, prayed, “And see if there be any hurtful way in me, and lead in the everlasting way” (Ps. 139:24). Sin hurts us, and David wanted to know every sin in his life so he could confess and forsake it, as he did in Psalm 32. David sought perfection. Jesus attained that perfection, never sinning, to show us what we should seek after as we follow His example. Our goal is to seek to become perfect like our Father.

While God is merciful, He expects us to see and lay aside the “sin which so easily entangles us” (Heb. 12:1). He tells us to confess our sins to others, so of course He wants us to confess them to Him (James 5:16). Acknowledging sin is a part of forsaking it. If we can’t see it, we can’t abandon it either. Confessing it to God is a necessary part of repentance of sin. It’s a basic concept that has become fuzzy because of this insistence that God’s law is done away, since lawlessness is biblically defined as sin. No law equals no sin.

So why even argue that First John’s command to confess sin is not valid? It’s only invalid if there is no law to define sin. So why not be un front and admit that you don’t need to confess sin because there is indeed no sin with no law?

There is no need to bring in a convoluted explanation of that verse that is false. The Bible is either all good for believers, or it isn’t. This verse is a command to practice what is practiced throughout the Bible, which is to confess sin. It applies to every believer. Nothing in First John 1 implies anything different.

The more you compromise with the Word, the more you will have to compromise as a little leavens the whole lump (1 Cor. 5:6).

 

 


Joseph Prince Caught in Heresy! Freedom Church of God

We love Joseph Prince. We pray for his repentance, and we follow our calling of crying aloud and showing God’s people their sins (Isaiah 58:1). Pastor Joseph believes there is no more law, which means there is no more sin and nothing to confess. But when we see that heresy is being preached, we must come against it and state clearly what the Word of God says.

Today, February 25, this man of God declared that Matthew 24 applied only to the Jews, since the Sabbath, mentioned in verse 20, was Jewish.

First of all, it’s not true to say the Sabbath was Jewish. Adam was not Jewish. Jesus made the Sabbath for mankind, not just the Jew.

Matthew 24 is not directed to the Jews. Jesus was talking to His disciples. While it’s true that most of them were Jews, not all were. The word disciple means follower. These men were followers and believers in Jesus. Today we call them Christians, even though the Bible calls them believers.

It’s ironic that the heresy Joseph Prince preaches is mentioned in this chapter, where Jesus warns us that many will come to mislead us and deceive us. The grace revolution is a major deception, which contradicts what the Bible says about the Kingdom of God and its laws of love. God loves all, but He hates lawlessness (Mat. 5:19).

Jesus said that the gate to death was a wide one. It doesn’t matter to God how many preachers teach heresy. His truth stands. The belief that this chapter applies only to the Jews is heresy. The belief that Jesus could not sin, and thus was not tempted in all things as we are, yet without sin, is a heresy. It doesn’t matter how many theologians agree with this heresy.

Pastor Joseph stated that anyone who minimized the truth that Jesus was fully man was preaching heresy. That’s exactly what he is stating, that Jesus wasn’t really tempted to where he could possibly sin. Jesus  said the flesh was weak, and He was in the flesh. Satan wouldn’t have wasted his time in tempting Jesus to worship him if such a thing wasn’t possible.

Jesus had to be like us His brothers “in all things” (Heb. 2:17) in order to truly understand us and be our High Priest. He said He could do nothing of Himself, without the Father’s help, and He says we can do nothing without Him (John 15:5).

Will the Jew who endures to the end be saved (Mat.24: 13)? No. Only believers will be saved. Many false prophets will arise and teach lawlessness, and most people’s love (not just the Jews) will grow cold (Mat. 24:11-12). Don’t fall for heresy!

Why Are You the Most Blessed Blog Readers in the World? Pastor Robert Scott

The amazing answer this question is found in Romans 10:14-16. It reads, “How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?  How will they preach unless they are sent? Just as it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news of good things!” However, they did not all heed the good news; for Isaiah says, “[Eternal], was who has believed our report?”

Fact is, a false gospel of grace is going out that is being hailed by a surprising number of believers, including pastors and TV evangelists. That highly acclaimed false gospel of lawlessness, condemned by Jesus (Mat. 5:19), is only the beginning of the end-time, great falling away that opens the door to the appearance of the man of lawlessness.

"Honesty is such a lonely word," went the lyrics of a popular song.  The true gospel Jesus preached and prophesied to be preached in the last days is none other than the gospel of the Kingdom (Mat. 24:14). The Bible does talk about grace, but the true gospel has never been the gospel of grace but the good news of the Kingdom of God, and it includes of necessity the laws of that Kingdom of Love.

How can believers believe a report they have never heard? Rare are the preachers of the Kingdom, and Satan is trying to attack them and be rid of them. Witness the perishing of Myles Munroe.

God does promise to send a future "Elijah" who will restore the hearts of God's children to their Father, and these verses, Malachi 4: 5-6, follow the verse that enjoins us to remember “the law of Moses My servant.” Jesus is the “My” here who is the Word that gave the law to Moses, and then brought grace and truth to live in believers in the person of Jesus to empower them to keep that same law in all its spiritual scope.

Our calling is Isaiah 58 and 59:1-3, and we are called to lift our voices in a desert of religious confusion to prepare the way for this Elijah, who himself will prepare the way of Jesus’ return. While this gospel of the kingdom is indeed going out worldwide on the Internet for the moment, few indeed are listening. You are. So you, whether you are a Christian who is awake or asleep like most, are blessed indeed to be hearing it.

We believe you are the most blessed blog readers in the world because you have the rare opportunity to hear the true gospel and to act on it while there's still time.

The enemy doesn't want this message to be heard, and because of technical difficulties you won’t read it on my personal blog. You can read it here and be one of the few who hears this rare report of truth and believes and acts on it. You can hear the true gospel right now, Right HERE


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!

 

 



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



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?

Pastor Prince, You Contradict the King! Pastor Robert Scott

DiStortion about Grace

 

When those who are anonymous in our new e-book, Grace Revolution?—Or Deadly Deception? go over the top in their teachings about grace, we must call them on it. Joseph Prince made such a statement today, August 19, in his daily message. Quoting the verse that said Jesus started His ministry by preaching the Kingdom of God, he added that Jesus was not yet teaching the fullness of the gospel of grace. Jesus said He spoke only what the Father said, so is he saying the Father needed some help before He finally discovered this gospel of grace. There is no better example of how the spirit of distortion can make black seem white in supposed Bible teaching than that those who “distort the gospel of Christ” (Gal. 1:7). They twist this verse since it’s the only way they can claim they have found a mention of the gospel of grace in the Bible, and they can’t find it here. Lawlessness is not the gospel; it’s the last days’ apostasy that could lead to the man of lawlessness. Listen to fredomtruthseekers.com September 12 to hear “Distortion and Grace.” Learn the true gospel, not the distorted version we are hearing today. Seeker of truth—beware! Read more...


Are you saying that the Father and Jesus missed the mark preaching the gospel of the Kingdom that will be preached in these last days. Are you saying they sinned because they didn't preach your supposed full gospel of grace. Are you saying that Jesus sinned so our salvation is jeopardized? Please don't distort the Word of God!


New Video Challenging Creflo and Joseph Prince Pastor Robert Scott

Pastors Prince and Dollar: Your Grace is False!

 

http://bookstore.westbowpress.com/Products/SKU-000920423/Grace-RevolutionOr-Deadly-Deception.aspx

We didn’t mention any names in the above e-book. We love these men and pray for them, yet we also love those whose lives we want to save from a deadly deception. Our love requires us to inform these men of the error of their present teaching on grace. Since we went to them by email according to Matthew 18, and were ignored, their latest gross errors in teaching must be challenged directly, so we present it to the believers, whom we love and want to protect from an error that could be the great falling away and may lead to the appearance of the man of sin. This e-book could save your life.


Wait Just a Minute, Creflo Dollar! We challenge you! Pastor Robert Scott

Challenge to Dr. Creflo Dollar in His Sunday TV Teaching

Dr. Dollar’s presentation on Sunday and Monday, May 11 and 12, 2014 can’t go unchallenged. He says that Jesus didn’t really mean what He said in the gospels. He only expanded and explained the law to show us it wasn’t possible to keep. Yet he quoted Matthew 28 that Jesus told the disciples to teach what He commanded them to teach. He contends that the disciples or apostles wrote what He commanded in the epistles. He says nowhere do we find Peter and John to sell all we have and to sever body parts or that we will be thrown into hell is we don’t cut off our hand. Besides the fact that Jesus’ example isn’t literal, consider these truths

The question he doesn’t answer is this: where does it say the apostles must repeat all of Jesus’ words in the epistles? Neither is it necessary for Jesus and the apostles to repeat everything written in the First Testament.

John says His commandments aren’t burdensome and he defines the love of God as keeping the commandments. He even says that “the one who says he knows Jesus and doesn’t keep His commandments, is a liar, and the truth isn’t in him” (1 John 2:4).

He twists the very verses that condemn the teachings of lawlessness (Mat. 5:19).

The doers of the law will be declared righteous (Rom. 2:13). That verse is nullified in his mind, since we can’t keep the law. He refuses to understand that grace is Jesus in us, enabling us to do what we can’t do of ourselves, to keep the law.

Showing us that no flesh can be justified by the law isn’t the only reason God gave the law.  Jesus raised the standard, but Dollar is lowering His standard with no biblical proof, only twisting the Bible. Keeping the law by grace is quite possible because Jesus commanded it, even that we should aim at the perfection of the Father (Mat. 5:48).

Any attempt of our own is indeed futile. That’s why grace and truth came with Jesus to enable us to do what we can’t do. We have to depend completely on Jesus to be able to obey, and Jesus’ blood cleanses us when we fall short, if we confess, which some of these grace teachers are saying is no longer necessary.

One of the guests on Sid Roth’s TV program received revelation that we have understood in grasping the whole picture of law and grace in the Bible, that the Hebrew idea of being under the law in Romans was being under the penalty of the law. If being under the law meant obeying the law, why would Jesus say to show we love Him we must keep His commandments (John 14:15)? And why would even Paul say that what was important was the keeping of the commandments (1 Cor. 7:19)?

While we have addressed some of these questions in our new e-book, Grace Revolution?—Or Deadly Deception? from West Bow, division of Thomas Nelson and Zondervan. However, these statements were so shocking and anti-biblical that we had to challenge them.
