Raphael Warnock

 

This story reveals everyone a person needs to know in the times in which we live.

Let me at the beginning make clear to anyone not familiar with this place or my writing and beliefs. There is only darkness and light. That’s all there is in everything. The darkness of evil, sin, being consumed of and by the world. On the side of Satan whether a person wants to admit that or not. Because there is only Satan’s lies, his evil, his rebellion and darkness within every person’s heart and mind — or there is the Light and Life of God the Father, the Lord Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the word of God, God’s rightness, God’s righteousness, the Light of the world, Jesus Christ in a person.

No gray areas. No off-ramps. No alternate paths although the world, and the devil speaking to the hearts and minds of the people of the world — that is the voice within their consciousness leading them further into darkness, that such things as what Raphael Warnock wrote and then attempted to remove and pull back from is okay. Is acceptable. That there’s nothing wrong in his stating — and keep in mind now this man is a reverend of a church. And that anyone calling Mr. Warnock out for being a heretic is the people who are in error, not Mr. Warnock, as you’ll read in the article below written by Anugrah Kumar of The Christian Post.

The minister of Satan is defended. A person standing up for the word of God and the truth is then the one painted as being in the wrong.

False teachers, unsound doctrines, the ravenous wolves have been allowed to enter in and tickle the itching ears of those walking in utter darkness, listening to Satan’s ministers from the pulpits of America rather than God’s men preaching the whole, clear, pure word of God.

No one should care what an MSNBC TV host, such as Joy Reid says or writes.

We, if we are truly the Lord’s and we are truly transformed, renewed of mind and spirit by the power of the Holy Spirit to create in us a new being, ought to only ever abide in, turn to, and be guided by what is contained in the word of God. And if there is a man preaching another gospel? A false gospel? Unsound doctrines? Such as preaching that a person can attain eternal life in heaven by their works? By being a “good person” (and by who’s standards is that determined but by each individual NOT by God the Creator of all life, all things good), if a man, or in the case of a truly lost and in utter darkness and being lead by the devil and not the Lord, a woman preaching, if any would preach there is another way to heaven, to the Father, to eternal life other than Jesus Christ? By the free gift of grace alone, by faith alone? And that Jesus’ resurrection is not important or necessary?

Pray for a pastor, a minister speaking and teaching unsound doctrines. Then go to the pastor, the minister, the reverend, the priest, and preacher of that so-called Christian church and show them in the word of God their error and do this with another brother or sister in the faith with you. And if the pastor, minister, etcetera rebuffs you? Does not repent of their preaching unsound doctrine? Does not read, perch, teach from the Bible without adding to or omitting from? Then flee from that place! Run from that place! Do not be a follower of a man more than a disciple of Jesus, a child of God, a follower of the true word. Do not allow yourself to get tangled up in loyalty to a denomination, a man, a pastor if such is in darkness and not the light, not the truth, not preaching expository sermons and teachings that are Bible-centered, Bible-founded, Bible-preached.

Eternity rests on sound doctrine.

Eternity rests on having no part of the darkness.

Eternity rests on sound doctrine, a thinking, aware, knowledgeable person truly transformed by the Spirit of God and placing God the Father, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the inerrant infallible word of God above any man. Any church. Any denomination.

To be separate from the world. Not to fall prey to the lie that enjoining, that appeasement, that friendship with the world will please the Lord, is the answer.

Find a church that does not think appeasement to sin, to the world, to darkness is more important than pure, true, Bible-centered preaching and teaching. Find a church where the Holy Spirit resides. Where the pastor, or pastors, the elders are not afraid to rebuke, admonish, chastise and preach the whole full inerrant infallible word of God. Do not seek places where social justice, political correctness, the philosophies, and psychology of the lost and fallen world is taught as truth, as the word.

Be a Berean. Be bold in Christ. Be a true disciple of the Lord Jesus. No matter what that involves. If you cannot stand in the truth in the place in which you are what are you doing wasting your time? Your place there, your efforts are in vain.

Seek, if you are truly transformed and born anew in Christ by the Holy Spirit a place where the truth of the word is taught continually, always, and only. And if truly born anew with the indwelling of the Holy Spirit each person knows what is true and what is false. What is light and of the word and what is darkness and a lie, of the world and thus of Satan, of the Evil One. Let’s not pussyfoot around, pretend or mince words.

This is not a game.

This is about eternal life or eternal death. Nothing else could be more serious for every individual on this earth.

The world has entered in and totally torn apart and reconstructed what goes on in so many churches in this age in which apostasy, heresy, darkness is overtaking every denomination and more and more pastors and churches.

Heed the times. Pay attention to the signs of the times.

Joy Reid of MSNBC got all upset because Jenna Ellis called Raphael Warnock a heretic. I will write that Mr. Warnock is not only a heretic for his beliefs and his misleading those in the church he presides over, but that he is in truth a minister of the devil for what he preaches and is not a minister of the word of God.

It is clear that Mr. Warnock has either never read, or does not believe the following;

 

The Resurrection of Christ

Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.

The Resurrection of the Dead

Now if Christ is proclaimed as raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? But if there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching is in vain and your faith is in vain. We are even found to be misrepresenting God, because we testified about God that he raised Christ, whom he did not raise if it is true that the dead are not raised. For if the dead are not raised, not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins. Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied.

But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, then at his coming those who belong to Christ. Then comes the end, when he delivers the kingdom to God the Father after destroying every rule and every authority and power. For he must reign until he has put all his enemies under his feet. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. For “God has put all things in subjection under his feet.” But when it says, “all things are put in subjection,” it is plain that he is excepted who put all things in subjection under him. When all things are subjected to him, then the Son himself will also be subjected to him who put all things in subjection under him, that God may be all in all.

Otherwise, what do people mean by being baptized on behalf of the dead? If the dead are not raised at all, why are people baptized on their behalf? Why are we in danger every hour? I protest, brothers, by my pride in you, which I have in Christ Jesus our Lord, I die every day! What do I gain if, humanly speaking, I fought with beasts at Ephesus? If the dead are not raised, “Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die.” Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.” Wake up from your drunken stupor, as is right, and do not go on sinning. For some have no knowledge of God. I say this to your shame.

The Resurrection Body

But someone will ask, “How are the dead raised? With what kind of body do they come?” You foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare kernel, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain. But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body. For not all flesh is the same, but there is one kind for humans, another for animals, another for birds, and another for fish. There are heavenly bodies and earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is of one kind, and the glory of the earthly is of another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars; for star differs from star in glory.

So is it with the resurrection of the dead. What is sown is perishable; what is raised is imperishable. It is sown in dishonor; it is raised in glory. It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power. It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body. Thus it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. But it is not the spiritual that is first but the natural, and then the spiritual. The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven. As was the man of dust, so also are those who are of the dust, and as is the man of heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we shall also bear the image of the man of heaven.

Mystery and Victory

I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality. When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:

“Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“O death, where is your victory?
O death, where is your sting?”

The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.

1 Corinthians 15 — English Standard Version

 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6 — English Standard Version

ACP — A Crooked Path Made Straight By the Word of God

 

Warnock deletes tweet claiming people can save themselves, Easter transcends Jesus’ resurrection

 

Monday, April 5, 2021

By Anugrah Kumar

Reprinted from The Christian Post

 

Rev. Raphael Warnock, a Democratic U.S. senator from Georgia and pastor of Atlanta’s Ebenezer Baptist Church, has removed a controversial Easter tweet stating that even non-Christians can save themselves by doing good.

“The meaning of Easter is more transcendent than the resurrection of Jesus Christ,” Warnock wrote on Twitter Easter Sunday. “Whether you are Christian or not, through a commitment to helping others we are able to save ourselves.”

After backlash, the tweet was removed from Warnock’s social media page.

The tweet caused some to accuse the 51-year-old reverend who won a Senate runoff election in January and propel Democrats to the Senate majority of heresy.

“Warnock deleted his heretical tweet,” President Donald Trump’s former lawyer Jenna Ellis responded by tweeting. “He should delete Reverend in front of his name too.”

In an earlier tweet, Ellis said that Warnock’s tweet was “false gospel and heresy.”

“We cannot save ourselves,” she wrote. “The absolute truth and only meaning of Easter that matters is the literal, physical resurrection of Jesus Christ, and we must accept Him as Lord and Savior.”

Ellis challenged Warnock to “read Romans.”

MSNBC host Joy Reid came to Warnock’s defense in response to Ellis’ tweets.

“This lady is literally calling the pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church — The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s church — a heretic,” Reid wrote. “This actually happened today. Madame, I’m gonna take @ReverendWarnock’s take, as a pastor and a scholar on the Word over yours, if you don’t mind.”

The College Republicans at Georgia State University quoted Ephesians 2:8-10 in a tweet.

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast,” the organization tweeted. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

Conservative podcast host Allie Beth Stuckey argued that “There is nothing more transcendent than the resurrection of the God-man, Jesus.”

“Literally: his resurrection transcends our finite conceptions of science & rationality,” Stuckey wrote in a tweet. “That the Word became flesh, dwelt among us, then was slain for our sins only to conquer death 3 days later?”

This is not the first time Warnock, a longtime civil rights activist and Georgia’s first black senator, has faced criticism for controversial comments.

Laurie Cardoza-Moore, the founder of Proclaiming Justice to the Nations, responded in an op-ed for The Christian Post to comments Warnock made in the past referring to Jesus as a “poor Palestinian prophet.”

“The word Palestine does not appear one time throughout the New Testament and the Philistines referenced in the Old Testament became extinct during Biblical times,” wrote Cardoza-Moore, who leads an evangelical Christian organization that encourages Christians to stand with Israel and the Jewish People against the rise of global anti-Semitism

“It appears that Warnock is more interested in pushing a subversive political agenda than teaching God’s word,” she remarked. “Warnock’s teachings are a fusion of two anti-Semitic doctrines that have led to the murder of countless Jews throughout history: Replacement Theology and Liberation Theology.”

She added, “The fact that Warnock pushes the Palestinian Jesus narrative is indicative of his broader perspective.”

“His spin doctors are working around the clock to cover his past and paint him as an heir of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr, a Zionist and staunch ally of Israel, when he is actually cut from the same cloth as his teacher Rev. Jeremiah Wright,” Cardoza-Moore stated.

Wright, a pastor emeritus of Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and former pastor of President Barack Obama, has made his own controversial remarks, including that blacks should not sing “God Bless America” but “God damn America.”
