Before you email me, read this...
First, I want to thank all who have come by the site to visit and learn.
I want to make this little announcement so that readers here will not be 'in the dark' so to speak. I get a lot of mail from all over the world regarding some of the things on this site. Most mail is positive and I thank each and everyone of you who offer encouragement and prayer. However, I do get some negative comments. I want to clarify one thing for all who stop by Watson's Web.
I am not a prophet.
I am not even a teacher, I am a bible student that shares what he has learned with others. I am no authority, I am no apostle, I am no elder, I am no pastor. I study the Bible and often the LORD will have me share what I have learned with my readers. I do not have all the answers and make no claim to. The people whose words are posted on my site are there for a reason. Many of you will have problems with some of these ministers. Some of you readers will rail horrific accusations against those who are doing the LORD's work, as though they understood all of the LORD's mysteries and were apostle's themselves. Accusations, that more often than not, have no basis in fact, but come from 'feelings' and vague 'impressions' or from what they heard from some gossip-monger on the Internet. These accusations are too often not based on sound doctrine or even a basic sense of intellectual honesty. Feelings and emotions too often lead to error and are easily manipulated by the prince of this world. I am fully aware that some of the people posted on this site are strong proponents of keeping the sabbath. Others are woefully misunderstood because they are exposing new-age deceptions and mysteries that are to be exposed for the saints of God to see. The devil makes a special attempt at destroying those ministries especially because they are really exposing what the devil is doing in the dark places in the government, the new age movement and in the Church. Nevertheless they are derided by 'Christians' who do not understand what is going on in the world because they are still walking in the flesh and refuse to discern deeper spiritual matters that are crucial if we are to overcome the strong delusion that is coming on the world. In short they rail at those who deliver meat, whilst they themselves are still being breast suckled. Others whose work is posted here have no special ministries as such, but nevertheless, God speaks to these souls. I give them an avenue to get what the LORD has shown them out to others. However I am a complete nobody and will remain so. I neither desire nor want the praise of men. I do not want to be the 'expert' that goes on conspiracy radio or gets asked questions by others as though I were. I have learned the hard way the glory and joy of simplicity and humility. The time when sites like mine can exist in America will soon come to an end. I believe that soon they will find a way to close Christian ministries down. So do not take this site or any site like this for granted. A lot of work goes into these sites (an awful lot) and I lose a lot of money doing this. In other words this site operates at a horrific financial loss. But I am not here for the money. I am here because this is the only way (the Internet) some people are going to hear the truth and the Lord commanded that I do this. He has provided. Glory To God and his son Jesus Christ!
I know some of my readers have very narrow views of what they believe God's truth is and are too quick too dismiss and allegorize the sayings of Christ and his Apostles about the end times. Some readers possess a narrow and parochial view and are too stubborn and too wedded to pet doctrines, rather than really delving into the scriptures (all of them) and trying to understand what is happening to our world, and what will happen BEFORE the return of our great LORD and Savior, Jesus Christ. Remember, the Pharisees of Christ's day also possessed such a narrow view of prophetic interpretations and were rejected by the living God.
I am giving this exhortation to every one of you in the name of the LORD, bring no accusations against another person whose work is on this site to me without first going to that person. Most of the words here have e-mail addresses on the site or at least a web site to visit. Go to them first, do not bring your accusations to me. I am a nobody. Additionally, I get tired of hearing all of the whining and murmuring done by supposed Christians who accuse others without taking the time to read what those whom they accuse write. I am not talking about just glancing over or hunting and pecking for one little sentence taken out of context to be used in order to accuse another, but really reading and seeing if the things being taught line up with scripture. If you have time to complain to me then you have time to write those you accuse and read what they say.
I will be totally frank with you, I don't want to hear any more vague accusations against others. Go the that person first, and if he is preaching something that is clearly in error, that is contrary to a fundamental doctrine. Then and only then will I answer your accusation.
Otherwise be assured your e-mail will be dutifully placed in the bit bucket and your e-mail address will go on by spam-blocker list and you will not be able to send any more e-mail to me.
Brethren, let us cease accusing others with the limited understanding we all possess.
Also, please do not write to me and call your judging others 'discernment'. They are two different things. One you do in your head and the other you do with your lips.
Do not judge others.
The tone of this message is not from anger, believe me. It is more from plain old exasperation. I simply want to see some harmony and more humility from the readers of this site. Too many write me with their flatteries and hidden agenda's in stubbornness of soul and spirit. It really disturbs me to see this and to deal with it constantly is most trying. Brethren and sisters in Christ, let us really learn to love (I mean really love) one another and take heed of Christ's words regarding judging others.
Once again thanks for coming by the site and may God richly bless those who are truly seeking Christ and honoring him in spirit and in truth. Love the truth, it is the best way to guard against the coming strong delusion.
For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth [will let], until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
If you belong to a 501(c)3 Tax Free Church and want to complain about how it really is OK to serve two masters. Please do not waste your time trying to convince me of the correctness of your dubious choice to wear two hats. You are only fooling yourself. If you do not believe what the scriptures has to say about having two masters, how are you going to believe me?
this site is not about money. Money is rarely spoken of kindly in
scripture and that tells me a lot. I have freely received therefore I
free give. You may post any article that I have written (I always put
a by-line on the bottom of those articles) on any site as long as you
give proper attribution and provide a link back to my home page.
are no copyrights on God's word and the work of his true ministers.
Copyrights that exist for the sake of money are a 'mammon thing',
those that do this (copyright) for money are not under Christ's
authority, no matter how much they may claim to be. However
Protecting ones work in order to keep others from selling your work
is probably the only valid reason for having them. God provides for
his true children. He loves them. Those who rely on the system of
mammon for the sustenance of their 'ministries' will be exposed at
the proper time. Those that rely on God will be rewarded in this life
and in life eternal. This
is not one of the ministries that relies on mammon.
What few things that are sold on this site are not under my control,
that is under my control is available in one form or another for
free. God has provided for this ministry and to him be the glory
forever and ever and ever! AMEN. I will not be like the married
couple in the book of Acts that were told to give and did not and
were killed in their greed and for lying to God about it.
Also, I know there are some grammatical errors on the site. I do this site all by myself, pay for, edit, research, fix tech problems, code... you name it, I do it. I cannot always spend a great deal of time editing and re-editing my work if I did, by the time I finished what I did would no longer be news but history. Most of you who complain have never really had to write and then be forced to edit your own work. It is very difficult. I cannot afford a professional editor and do not make enough money to pay one. So spare me your criticism on my grammar. Such comments, I can assure you wind up in the 'bit bucket' and offenders will go on my spam block list. **No exceptions**, never to be removed. I consider it a form of whining and this is my policy for all whiners. It really amazes me that people actually spend time critiquing grammar (apostrophe's, comma's, spacing) and people are starving to death, being imprisoned for their faith, dying in wars being driven from their homes and people get bent out of shape over a comma! I don't have the time or inclination to deal with that level of whining... now or ever.
Sorry, Mark is not taking e-mails at this time.
