holding onto the altar through sacraments
And Joab, fearing for his life, knowing that he was going to be killed for his treason and murder, took hold of the horns of the altar: Joab supported Adonijah in his treasonous attempt to gain David's throne. Now he imitates Adonijah's attempt to find refuge by taking hold of the horns of the altar (as Adonijah did in 1 Kings 1:50-53). 1 Kings 2. "He did not know where to fly except he fled to the horns of an altar, which he had very seldom approached before. As far as we can judge, he had shown little respect to religion during his lifetime. He was a rough man of war, and cared little enough about God, or the tabernacle, or the priests, or the altar; but when he was in danger, he fled to that which he had avoided, and sought to make a refuge of that which be had neglected." (Spurgeon)ii. "The laying hold upon the literal horns of an altar, which can be handled, availed not Joab. There are many - oh, how many still! - That are hoping to be saved, because they lay hold, as they think, upon the home of the altar by sacraments." (Spurgeon) What Are The Sacraments?The word "sacrament" derives from the Latin and means, literally, "something holy." For Christians, a sacrament is an outward sign of the presence of God, also referred to as "grace." Christians differ, however, on the number of sacraments, their role in the life of faith, how they are to be administered, and whether they are necessary for salvation.Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christians generally identify seven rituals as sacraments, while most Protestants practice two. Thus, nearly all Christians agree that there are two primary sacraments: Baptism, Holy communion (or the Eucharist)While Catholics and Orthodox Christians add:Reconciliation (or confession and the forgiveness of sins)Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders (or ordination)Anointing of the Sick (or last rites)
LISTEN UP RELIGIOUS PEOPLE.... YOUR SACRAMENTS ARE NOT GOING TO SAVE YOU! DON'T RUN TO YOUR PRIEST OR PASTOR AND CLING ONTO THEM, BUT GET ON YOUR KNEES BEFORE JESUS CHRIST AND BELIEVE ON HIM ALONE. AMEN.

These things speak,and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. Titus 2: 15 . Note: I love Israel and the Jews. I am a born again Christian who truly believes the Jews are God's chosen people and abhor replacement theology. For the past year I've been closely following Amir TSARFATI on his BEHOLD ISRAEL YouTube channel. I don't use Facebook, was basically thrown off about 8 years ago for posting content that spread hate (simply posted photos of Islamic thugs murdering innocent civilians) . I also don't use Twitter. Left after 10 years, nearly 10,000 followers, when new rules blocked my 1st amendment rights of free speech. I've been extremely impressed with Amir TSARFATI. I've been thrilled by his ministry. He shares my conservative views, especially achieving peace through strength and not through appeasement. He is very intelligent, articulate, handsome, courageous, charismatic, conservative, outspoken, fairly sound
Israeli News Live REBUKE Steven Ben Nun and his wife Jana In accordance with 2 Timothy 2:4, 4:2-4, Titus 1:11-16, 2:15; Ephesians 5:11; 2 Timothy 4:15, and Galatians 1:8,9 I rebuke Steven Ben-Nun and his wife Jana for misuse of scripture to misrepresent and twist the truth. For the past few years Steven has come out as an anti Zionist and yet has blatantly sided with the Russians and Syrians, making the USA and Israel out as the bad guys. The truth be told, both sides and all sides are under the global luciferion elite. By the fact that Steven does not point this out makes him a Jew selling out his own people by stating that the Golan needs to be given back to Syria and a Russian tool if not an actual Russian agent. We are pleased that Steve Ben-Nun and his wife Jana have woke up and walked away from Zionism. Please read link distinguishing Zionism from true biblical love of Israel and the Israeli people which we as Christians believe. LINK https://thirdheaventraveler.blogspot

Dr. Gene Kim Teaching video on 501c3 conspiracy I earnestly pray you receive this opportunity to correct your errant ways. You are a gifted and brilliant young man. Most of your teaching is rock solid. But these glaring issues addressed below must be addressed. BBC International Dear Dr. Eugene Kim, Thank you Sir for responding to my comment (reference a) It’s obvious by your response you haven’t read the blog I sent you about why Brick and Mortar Buildings called churches are not biblical. Most of what you sent me in your response by way of your video teaching is addressed in the blog. As far as using Romans 13:1-7 to defend 501C3 and your building - I address below. After careful consideration - I have to write this as a testimony as a witness submitted as Ambassador for The
