Greetings Brethren:

We bear witness that all that refuse and reject the New Covenant that claim to be Christians are Hell-Bent. Sadly this number includes most of the Religious leaders and many of the so-called converts among them.

The reading of the Scriptures notes the displeasure of God regarding these sad, dismal and wretched acts of Satanic Worship. Let it be written that the remnant must come from among them and establish a New Christian Church. The Gentiles of today are more disobedient than the wandering Jews of times long ago. Simply because the numbers are greater and the Lies are many.

Peace and Love,

Carl Patton writing for the FreedomJournal September 26, 2001 in the year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.




In the name of Jehovah God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.

Many theologians note the significance of the Old Testament Book of Malachi ending with the Word curse (Malachi 4:6). Malachi as the last Book in the Old Testament set the tone for a transition to the New Testament and Jesus Christ.

Malachi 4: 6. "And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."

Elijah in the person of John the Baptist would come to pave the way for the Messiah. It was the divine will of God that the forerunner and the messenger would come to save the world. Cursed are those then that disobey God's laws. Meanwhile, 400 years later the Book of Matthew opens with the following.

Matthew 1: 1. 'The book of the generation of Jesus Christ, the son of David, the son of Abraham."

Matthew as an inspired writer wrote this book to the Jews to present the promised Messiah. This promised king as a descendant of David was noted in Isaiah 11: 1-5. The Book of Matthew is the bridge from the Old Testament to the New Testament that links both Books. This Book also mentions how Jesus fulfilled many Old Testament prophecies. Israel at this time was controlled by Rome. They often suffered under Roman domination. Many of these Jews were aware of Old Testament prophecy concerning the Messiah. Thus, the writer made a special effort to reveal to them the lineage of Jesus.

Genealogy was very important to the Jewish people. Thus Matthew begins by noting that Jesus was a descendant of Abraham and a direct descendant of David. Therefore Matthew reveals that Jesus is the true and promised Messiah. Jesus came to fulfill the Law and save the world from sin.

Galatians 3: 10. "For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that continueth not in all things which are written in the book of the law to do them."

The word curse summarizes the effect of man's disobedience to God's law in Old Testament scriptures. By remaining in the Law the Galatians placed themselves under the curse. Here the writer Paul refers to Old Testament scripture noted in Deuteronomy 27: 26. Regardless to what the Judaizers claim the law cannot justify and save it can only condemn. However, Christ took (the burden) the curse of the law upon himself when He died on the Cross. So as the scriptures have promised Christ came to nullify that curse. Thus He came to deliver all of humankind from the curse and pave the way for salvation (See: Genesis 3: 15-17 and Deuteronomy 21: 3).

Galatians 3: 13. "Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree."

By his death and resurrection, Christ provided us redemption from the curse. So as Christ removed us from the yoke of the Old Law the Old Law rituals and sacrificial system also ended. However many false Prophets continue to attempt to re-write the Bible and deny the Messiah by claiming that a tithing system is still valid.

Tithes were collected under the Old Law. However, the tithes were livestock, grain and crops. This system or duty under the Old Law as a way to atone for sin passed when Jesus Christ died for our sins. Also we note that contemporary Preachers and religious leaders are committing blasphemy when they create laws and claim that God has ordained this law.

Meanwhile New Testament miracles are prevalent and a great testimony to supernatural posture of Jesus Christ. However, many agnostics and unbelievers question the miracles of the Bible and New Testament. Often they attempt to explain the miracles of the New Testament as natural phenomena. Meanwhile we cannot deny that supernatural events are recorded throughout the Gospels. Again the unbelievers reject the Gospels and note that miracles and supernatural events can be accepted as historical factors absent of the Divine.
