A Great Exchange


Do you know about the GREATEST exchange that ever took place in human history? I want to tell you about it but first some bible history and some lesser exchanges that took place:

*In Genesis 3:21
God exchanges a animal ( makes a coat of skins ) to COVER Adam and Eve due to their sin......

*IN Gen 22:1-19
God tests Abraham's faith asking him to sacrifice his son only to then provide as ram in exchange to COVER the needed sacrifice...

*In Exodus 12:23 
God instructs the Israelites to kill a lamb and cover their door posts with blood in exchange for a death angel that will come and not kill their first born ....

*In Lev 16 
God exchanges a goat for the sins of Israel ( a scape goat ) and sends it into the wilderness

Then in Matthew 27:17 in a custom of letting a prisoner go, we see the first human to get the GREAT exchange offered via Christ.
Barabus a guilty thief is set free ( EXCHANGED ) for Jesus the Christ who goes to His cruel death! 

Jesus then goes upon the cross, dies and is resurrected to cover mans sins and defeat death of all who will follow after Him and keep His commands and kingdom ways. 

In John 19.30 Jesus final words were.... It is finished!  

He has finished the GREAT EXCHANGE for all mankind... IF ...men will repent then obey the gospel and come after His Word and Ways as all of the NT word commands.  
See the gospel to eternal life here:
https://www.dontperish.com/the-gospel.html

You and I are Barabus who do benefit from this great exchange but only... if ....we are born of God and follow Him in faith as Jesus has made the way for us to eternal life to come.

God's Word tells exactly us why Jesus went to the cross and made that exchange:


For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
2 cor 5:21


Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:
Gal 1:4

But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God;
Heb 10;12

Note: 
His covering of sins is NOT a excuse to live unholy or be of the worlds ways. ( see Romans 6 ) No, it is a call to live for His glory, leave all ungodliness ( see Titus 2:12 ) and serve Him in spirit and truth seeking His kingdom to come, lest we miss the mark. John 4:24

Rest in Peace or Judgment? **

Click below to listen to this on John 4:24 Radio.
https://www.dontperish.com/john-424-radio-audio-page-1.html
( once there use control F and type rest in peace )



"May he rest in peace"

We always find it amazing the many phrases or sayings that man has developed over the years especially the religious ones. You will often here people say when someone dies "may he rest in peace" and we may see the letters RIP on a tombstone. So where did the saying come from? If you look into history you will see it was first used by certain Jews as far back as the 7th century and then it was made more popular by the pagan roman catholic faith during the dark ages. It only became very popular here in America about the 18th century and it is meant to wish someone that has died; peace in the next life to come. Is that peace available for just anyone at all?

While that may seem to be a nice thought and you may often hear it at just about every funeral; according to God's Word just how does someone find eternal peace in the life to come? Is it available for just anyone or if not: what must a person do to have the hope of peace in eternity? Again as discerning followers of Jesus Christ, let us go to His Holy Word for the answer and not just follow man's philosophies and traditions that can deceive us in so many ways. (Colossians 2:8)

The bible tells us that
it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
Hebrews 9:27

We also know that according to Romans 3:23
all have sinned and fall short of God's glory

By these verses we know there is a judgment to come and that all have sinned. So how could we hope to find this rest and peace beyond the fate?

Romans 5:1 says this:
"we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ"

So it is by and through Christ we have that peace. Is it just a mere belief or is it something more we need?

Since Jesus Christ came to earth as fully man and fully God it would seem His words are the utmost of importance to those who desire to know the truth about eternal life.
He said this:
"I am the way the truth and the life no one comes to the Father but by me"
John 14:6

He is the ONLY way and there is no peace without Him as our Lord and Savior. But how do we "have Him" according the Word?

There is a REST that is available to those who come to Christ for new life / salvation.

Matthew 11:28
Jesus said: Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
How can you receive that "rest" in Him?

He also said this:
Repent lest you perish Luke 13:3 and "A man must be born again to see the kingdom of God"
John 3:3

We see then that a man needs to repent of his sin (turn from) and be born ( new life spiritually) into Christ for new life, rest and peace to come. But what else...is that all there is?

God's Word also tells us that He (Jesus) gained eternal life for those... who obey Him
Hebrews 5:9

And Jesus Himself said this:
If you love me keep my commands
John 14:15

So a man who is going to get "Christ's peace and rest eternally" will be marked by a life of holiness, biblical obedience and a dedication to Him and His Word; not a false religious system, carnal worldliness(darkness) or made up beliefs.

Christ also said this about the love of God for true believers and a warning to those who love their sin (darkness)
 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.
John 3:16-21

Lastly, Jesus Christ also warned us that in order to worship God; we must worship in spirit and truth John 4:24

(Jesus also warned against practicing man made religious rules and traditions in Mark 7)

So it seems to make sense that this would eliminate false man made modern religion (roman catholic, Lutheran, Methodist and various other denominations etc) as they are not in line with God's truth as shown in great detail (using the bible as proof) here on our website: www.dontperish.com

So to recap:
In order to find peace after death (not judgment) a person must first have a saving faith in Jesus Christ, repent of their sins and be born again into the family of God. They then must show their love and a saving faith in God by following after Jesus in total obedience and holiness. No religious acts or just 'being good' will do before a Holy God.

We all know people who have died and seemingly had either no desire for God and or they were religious but they were living life outside of God's Word as they pleased and all for themselves or the things of the world. Can they still have a hope of rest and peace after death? What if a person had not done these spiritual things we just discussed above at all and they have died? What can they expect for a after life to come? Rest and  peace or God's wrath and judgment?

Here is a stark warning indeed:
He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction.
2 Thessalonians 1:8-9

Hebrews 3:11
So I sware in my wrath, They shall not enter into my rest

This judgment of hell will not be a peaceful rest for anyone sent there:
Jesus said: And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
Matt 13:50

In the end, we can conclude from scripture that the saying "may he rest in peace" is quite meaningless for most people unless that person was truly born again in Christ and as evidence of a saving faith was following Him in obedience to the end. Anything short of this puts one in line for God's Wrath to come due to your sin.

Based on the Word lets reject the ways and traditions of man that go against God's Word. Don't be deceived by a feel good message of "everyone is resting in peace after death" just because God is known to be loving. He is loving but that love was expressed in Christ's payment on the cross and God has wrath as well. If you reject Christ by choosing to live your own way or practicing a man made faith; (not in obedience and holiness) there will be no peace or rest for you on judgment day. There will be a fiery judgment to come for your sin, that you clearly deserve! (As do I except for my Lord's payment.) We love others enough to tell them the truth even though most will not like to hear it and most often get angry about the it. (Jesus also said His own will be hated by the world / see Matthew 10)

While RIP may be a nice "feel good idea"; it has NO real truth behind it for most men when we look at God's Eternal Word so it must be rejected. This matters as Jesus said He is the Truth.... so we must not walk in spiritual error but be obedient to His Word for His glory, amen?

Ask yourself this ....
Are you born again today and following after Christ in a biblical spirit and truth worshipful life with that hope of peace and rest to come or; are you lost or just a religious person and headed for judgment and hell?

Something to consider don't you think before it is your turn to die?

Should Christians Get Angry?

Does anger have a place in the believers life?

First lets look at the characteristics that a born again Christian should have and be striving daily to protray to one another:

Love (fervent, brotherly)
Joy
Peace
Longsuffering

Gentleness
Goodness
Faith
Unity
Forbearing
Lowliness 
Meekness
Peace
Patience
Servant
Bearing burdens
Tender hearted
Forgiving
Comforting

Praying for each other
Hospitable


Let's read God's Word and some of His commandments against anger in believers...

Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath: James 1:19

Be not hasty in thy spirit to be angry: for anger resteth in the bosom of fools. Ecclesiastees 7:9

And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient 2 Timothy 2:24

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls. Proverbs 25:28

The discretion of a man deferreth his anger; and it is his glory to pass over a transgression. Proverbs 19:11

He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city. Proverbs 16:32

 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart bringeth forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaketh. Luke 6:45

Righteous anger is toward those who profess to be a follower of Christ but are profaning His Word.

Let all bitterness, anger and wrath, shouting and slander be removed from you, along with all malice. Ephesians 4:31

Seek for yourself and be sure you are in the fruits of the Spirit.

Dying Man and Wood Carvings / 2018 Witnessing Experiences



When you serve God and are faithful to His Word, He uses you!

We got a call from a lady who wanted a wood carving for her ill husband and for a benefit they were having for him to raise money. We communicated then went to their house to see the site.

Once there, we saw a very ill man close to death due to lung disease. Because God's truth is in us and drives us, that day we got to share the life saving gospel with that man, warn the lady about various false religious bodies she asked me about and we will get to help them in their benefit needs to raise money.

We left rejoicing, even though we wont make any money, we do not care about their money!  Because of it all, God's truth was proclaimed and another soul has the hope and choice to make for eternity! It is what we do for Christ.....

See the gospel below to find eternal life to come and let us know how we can help you.

Biblical Fellowship and Accountability



Is biblical fellowship and accountability important?

In the 10 years we have been striving in the Lord, we have met literally HUNDREDS of people who once were striving on the narrow path. Then because of some unbiblical issue those choose to separate on, they left a biblical fellowship/accountability and ALL of them ( not some of them ) ALL of them have gone back into the world not on in the truth of the Lord! 

How very sad....

When I say biblical fellowship and accountability, I am not referring to man made evangelical Sunday religion. No I am speaking of true saints, set apart, obeying all of God's Word who gather in homes in the Word to encourage, teach and hold each other accountable in God's truth. When you leave others who are striving in all truth, you open yourself up to your own fleshly ways and that of the world. Who is then going to call you back and hold you accountable in the faith? 

I will make this article brief as we have other articles/videos that teach how important biblical fellowship and accountability really is below in the true believers life. 

The bible says over 50 times to one another each other in the faith.
( see the article below ) This is speaking of true holy saints not lukewarm false converts in a Sunday building.

*If you have other true believers in the faith near you that are clinging to all of God's Word and obeying it, you need to cling to them and unite with them in the Word as that glorifies God and holds you to it's truth. 

*If you are isolated and alone in your area, that is fine, you just need to hold fast in the Word, do not compromise truth just to gather. Remember via technology you can have fellowship, teaching and accountability in the Word from long distance if you know of other saints on that narrow path and you have tested then to the Word. We know of saints all over the nation and world striving and we are able to encourage them in the faith via technology. It is godly LOVE that drives us to encourage them!

If you find yourself afraid of biblical fellowship and accountability to other godly people, you need to ask yourself this:

Are you really on the narrow path or are you in a ditch, just looking at the narrow path?

That will not lead to eternal life! 

James 5:19-21 speaks of pulling a sinning brother out of his sin and SAVING his soul from death!

How can someone do that for you if you are not in biblical fellowship and accountability to others?

We are here to help ANY true saint who desires biblical fellowship and accountability in the Word. We desire to be accountable to other TRUE godly saints and are thankful for the saints we do have with us!!!!!
Please know we will strive, travel to see you and work hard to hold you up in the faith, as it is what we do! ( we do not do ritual dead man made religion that leads to death )

See all of our biblical info below, those articles and let us know how we can encourage you?

Bill Hybels Sexual Scandal and Another Hireling Falls

Accuser of the Brethren Explained



If I had a dollar for every angry claimed bible teacher that I tested and exposed for their heresy that called me THE ACCUSER OF THE BRETHREN, lets just say that I would have A LOT of dollars!

Is it correct to call another man this name and are they using it biblically correct? 

No and here is why.

The term accuser of the brethren is only used 1 time in all of God's Word. 

 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Rev 12

In context this is about satan the devil, not any man.

What did Jesus say about satan?

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

John 8

So per Jesus, the accuser of the brethren ( satan ) is a murderer and there is NO truth in him. Clearly this is not speaking of a Christian man so using it to label any man is sinful and wrong. Because false teachers get exposed and they cannot stand in the truth of the Word, they lash out and in a unbiblical manner try to say I am satan, which is untrue! ( I am NOT satan ) 

The truth is in Jesus day on earth, His enemies ( religious leaders ) tried to tie him to satan as well. Modern pastors and other false teachers do it today as well. How sad.... 
When I test bible teachers and expose those who will not repent of heresy, I only do it in truth using their own teachings as evidence. This can in NO way be called accusing the brethren as we are called to test, mark and expose others in sin and error.

See 1 Thess 5.21... Romans 16.17 ....Matt 18... 1 Tim 5:20 and Eph 5   

Those who try this diversion tactic only further show how unbiblical and undiscerning they are in the truth of the bible and it proves they are far from God's truth. The truth is that satan is the father of lies, he hates the brethren and God and his desire is to murder souls in hell through his deception. 

While false teachers use him to hide their own sin, to avoid getting called out and to try and change the subject from their false ways ( often done for money and popularity ) but it does NOT work! Their fruit and ill theology exposes them, I just ask them to repent of it then make it public when they wont and mark then per Romans 16.17

Note: the goal is for them to repent and be in correct theology as we love all people and we love God's truth most!

Please do not be led astray by such men..... and run from them!

Humboldt Broncos Bus Crash and God's Warning




The following article is written by (me) an EX hockey dad and ice hockey coach who spent a decade of his unregenerated life either in hockey rinks, coaching on the ice, driving to games  or watching his son play hockey, of which... I sadly regret today! Thankfully God rescued me from it all via the gospel of Christ and new life in Him!
************************************************************************

In April 2018 a tragedy occurred up in Canada were 15 people ( among them 10 hockey players age 16-21 ) died in a terrible bus crash as they drove to play...... a hockey game.

My heart breaks for all involved and as an ex hockey dad and coach, the pain they all felt must be beyond understanding to those witnessing it. You get very close to players and parents in this game and then to see so many young lives ended so soon. I have read articles and news reports and heard all the different takes on it from parents, coaches and local towns people. Everyone is saying how the hockey world has come together to support them all and that is honorable. They held a vigil and many words were sent UP to God in this time of their greatest pain and religious services were also included. 
It is what the world and religious folk do it seems, they live any way they desire then cry out to God in your time of need. 

Note: NO biblical gospel on how to find eternal life was given at their vigil .... just many religious words. How sad! 

For this article, I want to focus on it from my perspective as a ex hockey dad and now born again Christian/child of God/preacher of the gospel good news. I want to be bold and honest here in the hopes you have found this article and it will wake you up to truth!

While it is very heart warming to hear those affected reaching out to God in a hour of need and pain; the truth is this tragedy NEVER would of happened (in this magnitude) IF those families involved were born of and simply obeying God's Word. 

Having been in the sport of hockey myself, excelling at it demands you dedicate your entire being to it in a almost idolatrous obsession. It is like few other sports I know of really. Families will drive for many hours and send their young teen boys far away to live with strangers in the hopes they will someday play junior, college or pro hockey. That was the dreams of these young men who were killed as they were striving in Junior hockey sadly. 

So why did this NOT have to happen you ask?

God's Word commands those who are born of Him ( heaven bound ) that they do NOT live for or cling to the sinful fallen worlds ways like violent, pride filled, rowdy idolatrous hockey. If these boys had been raised in homes were God's Word and ways were fully followed, they would not have been in or loved ice hockey at all. They would have been protected from the worlds ways, they would have known/loved the Word of God, obeyed it and that would have protected them from the world and this terrible sports bus crash. You do not die on a hockey bus crash if your not into hockey. I find their deaths so tragic as they were striving for a temporal thing and not living for eternity is the main point! To show you how deceived or void of real godly truth this organization was, they even have a team chaplain.
( hockey and all it entails is NOT of God yet, they try to make it so with so called men of God approving of it... )  

So why are the worlds ways and its games NOT of the Lord?

God's Word says:
Titus 2:11-15
For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,
Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;
 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.
These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee.

 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. Romans 12:2

People say well, they died doing what they love!
That is the point as they loved the world's ways, NOT God's ways and that fruit is not the sign of a heaven bound saint is it? 

You see the bible teaches godly people to leave the worlds ways, NOT embrace them if they are God's true people! Sadly most people are merely into Sunday religion but they are not born again at all. That was me..... I loved the world ( hockey ) more then God's ways.

Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him.
1 John 2:15

In truth, judgement and hell awaits the non redeemded people who crave and love the worlds offerings (like sports fans as I once was) NOT heaven, so I write this article as a wake up call to others in love! 

When I repented and was born again, I had a GREAT sorrow for all the time I wasted in this sport ( any sport ) and how I allowed myself to teach its worldliness and idolatry to my son. Today I would encourage any man/parent/teen to test themselves, repent, be born a new, get into God's Word and stay out of any ice hockey rink, baseball field or football stadium as the end of it all and the purpose of it all is NOT good per God and His Word. 

The death of these young men shows how fragile and short this life can be. I have no idea how many of these young men went to heaven or hell? But this I do know.... there will be NO hockey in heaven and if that was or is your pursuit/passion here on earth, I fear for your eternal outcome! 
My plea is this; why would anyone who claims or is born of God and desires heaven, ever want to waste their life, skills, time and effort on a futile short lived pursuit as hockey or any other sport for that matter? 

See this article on sports and the Christ follower:
http://spiritandtruthdiscernment.blogspot.com/2017/05/sports-and-follower-of-christ.html

Please do not be like these men who died striving for and doing something carnal of the fallen world that God does NOT approve of as it lacks anything of eternal value, goodness, holiness or purity. 

God hates what the world esteems highly you know?
see Luke 16.15

I hope you hockey fans wake up and repent and do not waste your life/eternity focused on the game or ice, as I almost did!!!!!

There is GOOD NEWS.....
Repent, be born again and come out of the world and its ways. Then you will have the hope of eternal life to come thanks to what Christ has done!

See the gospel below and all of our resources to help you in the saving faith and let me know how I can help you? 

God changed this one time hockey freak and He CAN do the same for you.....

God be praised
