Why did Jesus pick Galilee as the place where his disciples would see Him?
- The Pilgrim Feasts were over and it was normative for Galileans to return to Galilee until next Pilgrim feast 50 Days later (Shavuoth/ Weeks; Pentecost). By returning to His earthly home in Galilee Jesus was showing He had totally accomplished the Messianic Fulfillment of Passover and First Fruits which had to take place in Jerusalem. This is a little complicated to explain. Answers to such questions are usually found in the Torah. Only Jews who completed the two Pilgrim Feasts could return home. If someone became ritually defiled (by a touching a corpse or pagan contact or something inadvertant like a male coming into unintentional contact with menstual blood – all kinds of stuff; see for instance John 18:28) . If a Jew did not totally fulfill the feasts they had to remain in Jerusalem for a whole month of purification to observe the two paschal feasts Pesach and First Fruits. By Jesus going home He signified He achieved the fulfilment as the Paschal Lamb and as The First Fruit (1 Corinthians 15:20). Continue reading
I had always promised before the Lord Jesus two things concerning Christian TV. The first is that I would never “Ride in Ahab’s Chariot”; that is I would not appear on the same channel, network, or station that broadcast heretical money preachers. I would not want Moriel to be misunderstood as endorsing such deceivers who have prostituted God’s Word or allow us to be identified with them in the eyes of the secular public. They discredit the Gospel of Salvation to the world, twisting the truth into a financial con game. Continue reading

Can you explain God’s reasoning behind Leviticus 19:19?
Blessings in The One who saved us. Your question was forwarded to me from The USA.
We have explained this multiple times already - for instance on our recorded teachings of ‘parasoxousin’ (Greek text) in 2 Peter chapt. 2 and elsewhere. The Torah/ Law of Moses is the Old Testament shadow of the substance found in Christ revealed in The New Testament. Parasoxousin mean to put truth next to error to camouflage the error; all cults, false teachers, false prophets, and false religions have elements of truth they sow next to error. God hates mixture.

Recently on Rapture Forums a woman wrote in and asked: Do I need to keep repenting for those sins? “How many times do I need to repent? In his answer: Pastor Adrian says “No, not unless you commit fresh sins. But then it is a matter of confessing them, not repenting. Repentance is what brought you to God. ” Continue reading

Moriel and Jacob Prasch fully endorse the recent conference remarks by Paul Smith warning about the seriously dangerous nature of the actions and false doctrines of Rick Warren.
Any honest review of the irrefutable facts supports Paul Smith’s caveats. Continue reading

Pope Benedict XVI
Joseph Radzinger, aliasÂ Benedict XVI, formerly known as “The Rottweiler” fromÂ his role as attack dog for his predecessor Carol Wojtyla alias John Paul II under whose auspices he issued theÂ Criminale SolicitaccionesÂ instruction of Pope John XXIII has resigned. The uncoveredÂ instruction orderingÂ the protection of pedophile sex criminal priests and nuns at the expense of not protecting the little children they were molesting and threatening the littleÂ victims with hell if they did not keep their being raped secret did not result inÂ a RICO prosecution in the USA despite 177 out 179 AmericanÂ dioceses and their bishops andÂ archÂ bishops being found liable for massiveÂ damages inÂ court. The Bush Administration squashed civil litigations against Radzinger on political grounds that as a head of state the pope is immune from any judicial or prosecutorial proceedings byÂ International convention. Similar efforts in the UK to have citizen’s arrests of Radzinger during his papalÂ visit of 2010 were stopped by the British government, thus this gangster who orchestrated an international campaign to shield dangerous child molesters was never brought to justice for obstruction or aidingÂ and abetting fugitives from justice. The systematic rapeÂ and sodomizing ofÂ small children by Roman Catholic clergy under the protection of the church hierarchy stemmed from Australia andÂ New Zealand to the USA and Canada, to Great Britain, to GermanyÂ and beyond,Â but was found most prolific in Roman Catholic countries such as Ireland, Austria, French speaking Africa,Â and Brazil.
Please explain to me how in the world, some of those that continue in this pre-trib view, can interpret the word apostasy in 2 Thessalonians 2:3-4 [below] as being the departure? I really need this clarified for I can not accept it nor can I understand how they arrived at this conclusion. Many renown bible teachers, whom I admire are believing this and spreading it throughout the body of Christ. It’s too hard understand how and why. I would appreciate it if you would be so king as to take time to explain, for maybe I’m not the only one questioning this and we need an answer.
Thank you in advance, Continue reading
