>> NO GUNS! <<

Aren’t We to Be Like Jesus?
Your Last Decision is Your Last

Special Guest brother Keith Iton and Johnny Baptist discuss the misconceptions of gun use as a Christian. THROW THE GUNS AWAY.

Rev 13:9-10

Let anyone who has an ear listen: If you are to be taken captive, into captivity you go; if you kill with the sword, with the sword you must be killed. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.

I hope so much that people “get” the spiritual “mandate” of discipleship on earth. There are so very few truly spiritual Bridal party candidates out there. They “believe” they are spiritual, but they don’t REALLY exhibit it in their hearts. I see this duplicitous (two-faced) dynamics in SOOO many people depending on what the subject is, their “earthliness” is revealed in them.

I pray, often in tears, deep sobbing tears, beseeching God to purge me of any inner earthliness and start to transform me now into a spiritual being overflowing in love; shedding everything that is human in its origin.

I want to stand in front of the man with a gun pointing at my daughter and say “You there! Unclean spirit I command you to come out of that man!“. I know that I know that I know that that man will drop his gun and start to cry because the demon will leave him.

OH GOD Helpst thou our unbelief!

TURN THE OTHER CHEEK

Matthew 5:37-48

Go the Second Mile

(Turn the Other Cheek)

38 “You have heard that it was said,  ‘An eye for an eye  and a tooth for a tooth.’  39 But I tell you not to resist (anthistemito stand against“) an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right  cheek, turn the other to him also.

40 If anyone wants to  sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your  cloak also. 41 And whoever compels you to go one mile,  go with him two. 42 Give to him who asks you, and from  him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away.

Love Your Enemies

43 “You have heard that it was said,  ‘You shall love  your neighbor and hate your enemy.’  44 But I say to  you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do  good to those who hate you, and pray for those who  spitefully use you and persecute you, 45 that you may  be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun  rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the  just and on the unjust.

46 For if you love those who love  you, what reward have you? Do not even the tax  collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet your  brethren i only, what do you do more  than others? Do  not even the tax collectors do so? 48 Therefore you  shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

They Who Seek to Save their Lives Lose It

IT’S ABOUT LOVE
AND
THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

Jesus embrace

2 Tim 1:7
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
NKJV

Here is an email I sent to someone who was having a hard time grasping these spiritual concepts of becoming like Jesus.

Our “flesh” (e.g. that is the human part of our existence) is that which Jesus and our God command us to extricate from our existence. Anything and everything that has to do with our human nature to “save ourselves” from harm is part of “the flesh” that God is (essentially) repulsed by.  When we fail at any time to “walk in the spirit” (e.g. believe 100% in the miracles of God and trust the POWER of the Holy Spirit) we are essentially living in “sin” (we are living carnally and in our flesh nature).  We are to become beings of love and light and transform into everything that Jesus Christ was in all our thoughts, beleifs and actions.

Our “flesh” (e.g. that is the human part of our existence) is that which Jesus and our God command us to extricate from our existence. Anything and everything that has to do with our human nature to “save ourselves” from harm is part of “the flesh” that God is (essentially) repulsed by.  When we fail at any time to “walk in the spirit” (e.g. believe 100% in the miracles of God and trust the POWER of the Holy Spirit) we are essentially living in “sin” (we are living carnally and in our flesh nature).  We are to become beings of love and light and transform into everything that Jesus Christ was in all our thoughts, beleifs and actions.

If you feel a twinge of “fear” when a person threatens your family, that fear is “flesh fear” and it comes from Satan.  God expects us to us the supernatural power of His divine protection, the Holy Angels, and the Holy Spirit to take control of ALL situations.  To command tornadoes to change their path, to command lions and serpents to GO NOW and LIKEWISE to take full control of the demons that control the unsaved people who would threaten us and do us harm.  This is who we are in the earth.  Jesus would never kill someone.  Every time in his 33 years of life on the earth of which we have a record of, Jesus responded to every threat with “love” and the supernatural power of God.  That is who we are. (well some of us).  If you feel in your heart a need to protect your family with an earthly weapon you are in sin.  It really is that simple. You do not trust God and you do not understand the power of Jesus Christ which lives inside your soul/spirit body matrix.  You are also not putting it into practice. Practice makes perfect oh ye of little faith.

No matter how you think it through, how you imagine a “would be attacker” coming toward you or one of your family members, the moment you consider using a weapon, you have given the Devil full authority to kill your family.  You have lost all your power through Christ because you are entered into sin and fear.  However if you stand with the authority of Christ IN YOU and you say ‘In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I COMMAND YOU to LEAVE and drop your weapon NOW IN JESUS NAME” you will successfully save your family’s lives, your own life, but you will also save the life of the attackers and probably lead them to Jesus in tears.  Always saying  as Jesus did, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do”.

If the Father knows this is how you will respond to such threats. It is extremely unlikely any danger would approach your family.  For the Lord God tests the righteous.  However if the Father believes that you still have carnal earthly fear inside of you and you do not trust Him or the power of Christ in you, then you are FAR more likely to have your family attacked.

We need to transform now.  First pray for overwhelming love inside of you for every person including the evil people.  The pray that our Father will teach you about HIS power that lives inside of you and learn to TRUST HIM.

God Bless You

John

 

DENYING THE POWER

NOTE: This scripture below is about “believers” of today.  We know this because a) it mentions the last days and b) is states that they have a form of godliness which a non-believer would not have.  Note the “key word” of what these ‘believers’ are missing in their walk.  They deny the ‘POWER’ of the Holy Spirit because they do not understand it.

 2 Tim 3:1-5
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power.
NKJV

It is with a heavy heart, and a deep sadness, that I write this article.  Perhaps for some, this article may be a victory.  Unfortunately, for me, it comes with the burden of knowing that many people (and particularly awesome Christians) will suffer unnecessarily because of a “mis-understanding”.  And worse, may have to pay penalties for it, when standing before the Son of Man.

The other thing that troubles my heart, is that I stand along with some of the greatest Christians to ever live.  Certainly, I do not consider myself worthy to be counted as part of their group.  In fact I am really not a part of any group, per se.  But by virtue of “similar missions” and connected writings the general worldwide readership of Tribulation-Now would naturally assume I am “of one mind” with all those I stand among in “our” mission to disclose the enemy’s movements, and warn the world of the forthcoming “dark times”.

 

Rom 13:14
14 But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh
NKJV

put ye on the Lord Jesus

 

Sadly, among many of those it is assumed I stand firm with, there may be some “key” differences that MIGHT separate us.  These “differences” some people may see as “no big deal” but in fact on a global scale and in the midst of the fight we will certainly find ourselves in “pretty soon”, these differences have an impact that reaches into the Heaven’s and will surely make our Lord God cry out in frustration.

Now it’s okay to disagree with me.  And there’s really no point in sending me scriptures you extrapolated in defense or your position.  I know what I know not only because it is what Jesus (and his apostles, disciples, and scribes) clearly said, but because …

IT MAKES SENSE!

The only reason I am sad about presenting this material is because I am sure that so many will disagree with me.  And while there is no harm in disagreeing, there is enormous harm that will ultimately result due to that disagreement that could have been avoided if the Lord would only “reach out” and speak to them to help them understand the POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT and the LEGIONS OF ANGELS we have at our disposal.

But you have to BELIEVE.

 

A Vision of Warning and Word of Preparation for the Saints

Confusion with the Flow of Scripture

We are all guilty of many things.  I am the first to raise my hand when asked “who’s guilty”?  I stand humbly at the front of the line of sinners unworthy to stand before the Son of Man and I pray, in Jesus name, every day that He pulls me out of harms way when the time comes.

And I am also guilty of “cherry picking” scripture.  In fact, I am pretty sure that most of us are unwittingly guilty of this “cherry picking” at one time or another.  I have, at least, learned to TRY and seek contextual agreement of verses before I start “waving them in the air” as my “motto” or official “position statement”.

There is a frightening humility that one learns (hopefully) as they begin their journey in understanding this situation we find ourselves in.  The more I studied this New World Order situation, (off and on about ten years now, concentrated about 5 years), the more I began to realize that Jesus wasn’t kidding when he said they would take us away and kill us and there would be great persecution.  The “natural” thing to want to do is “dig in”.  The natural thing to want to do is “hide out” and protect your family from this forthcoming evil.

Let’s study this problem a bit.

Jesus was the Paradigm Shift

There is no question that the Old Testament is full of conquest.  Chariots, swords and wars all the time.  One Kingdom conquering another.  These scriptures are LOADED with verse after verse that one can use to show “beyond of shadow of a doubt” that it’s “okay” to fight a war on the side of YHWH God, and it’s “okay” to defend your family and protect your property.  One could even argue that for every verse that says it’s okay to “take up arms” there are an equal number of verses that say otherwise.  This is likely the case.

BUT WHY?

Well when you read the Bible there is this really strange “paradigm shift” that occurred when Jesus came down to earth in the flesh.  The entire dynamic changed.  The list of changes is so utterly vast that it would take me an entire book to document them all.

What should jump off the pages at the reader, is that around the time that Jesus came, the Hebrews were pretty much settled in.  Yes, in 70 A.D. there was an uprising against the Roman Empire when the Hebrews decided they had had enough and started waring with the Romans.

BUT LISTEN.  Here is the lesson to be learned by what happened.  The Jews (Hebrews), did not understand that Jesus was their Messiah.  They did not listen to WHO?  They failed to listen to the KING OF KINGS.  Wow.  Think about that for just a minute.  And what happened to them when they up-rised against the Roman Empire?  Millions of them were slaughtered.  MILLIONS.  It was an utter disaster.  A horrible consequence of not following …. WHO?

JESUS

But who was Jesus?  Is not Jesus also God?  Are YHWH and Jesus and the Holy Spirit not the essences of the unity of the “Godhead”.  Are they not spiritually, one in the same?  Was Jesus not here at the “foundation of the world”?

Then it stands to reason, when the Hebrews fought against the Romans, that “their God” (YHWH) wasn’t backing them.  Hmmm.  Well the evidence is clear.  The outcome says it all.

A Commonly Misunderstood Scripture

I decided to do a little looking into the use of the word “sword” in the New Testament.  One of the most commonly misunderstood verses in the Bible regarding the notion of “taking up arms” is Matthew 10:34.  Let’s take a close look at what Jesus was trying to say here.

Matt 10:34



“Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.


NKJV

WOW.  Now those are some powerful words.  I have heard time and time again, people that I dearly love, use this verse as their “motto” to demonstrate that Jesus wasn’t a “pacifist”.  I have heard this verse used to demonstrate that people have a RIGHT to stand up against an unjust government.  Hmm.  Maybe.  Surely we can cut Romans 13 out of the Bible.  Surely … right?

Sorta makes you wonder why GOD (YHWH) made it PERFECTLY CLEAR that He was USING Babylon to place an IRON YOKE around the neck of the Hebrews for not following his instructions.  And for 70 years no less.

I have a wonderful Jewish friend that is surprisingly knowledgeable about such things and often teases me.  He says things to me like “Johnny, you sound like my old Uncle Frank.  Even HE thinks we still have the iron yoke of Babylon around our necks!”.  Funny.  Maybe Uncle Frank is right.  Maybe.

BUT WAIT.

Just this morning, even I was questioning that scripture’s meaning.  Surely is “implies” that Jesus is coming to bring a “sword” and to cause division of sorts … right?  Surely.

Well.  Turns out not really.  Never mind the fact that there are about 27 verses in the New Testament (the new COVENANT) that mention the word “sword”.  And never mind such alarming wake up calls like the verses in Romans that say:

Rom 12:14-21

14 Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep. 16 Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble. Do not be wise in your own opinion.

17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 Therefore

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;

If he is thirsty, give him a drink;

For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

NKJV

Now if this scripture is not solid enough instruction on how to behave like a true Christian with the FAITH that GOD and His Holy Spirit and Legions of Angels will STAND in your defense (when you do so), then I suppose I am left wondering a bit.

BUT WAIT

Let’s revisit Mark 10:34 again, but THIS TIME, let’s do it with the Kenneth Wuest Expanded New Testament.  Maybe there is some “hint” of why Jesus would say he is coming to bring a “sword”.  After all, Kenneth Wuest in supposedly one of the greatest Greek translators to ever live.  You see the Greek language doesn’t translate well to English.  For example in Greek, there are 5 words for “love”.  Did you know that?  Each Greek word for “love” means something entirely different than the other.  And Mr. Wuest doesn’t just “translate” word for word because this is simply not possible.  He “transliterates” the language so the result is the “intended meaning”.

You DO want to know the “intended meaning” don’t you?

(Note: In the Kenneth Wuest translation, he has to rearrange the “paragraph structures” to ensure the context of the communication is not lost by the errors of the original attempts.  So since each “paragraph” should be speaking about a single “thought stream” when you read Mr. Wuest’s translation, you will see he clumps together the verses a bit differently than the other texts.  This is critical to understand the true and intended meaning)

Matt 10:32

32-1 Everyone therefore who is of such a character that he will confess me before men in the realization of and in testimony to his oneness with me, I also will confess him before my Father who is in heaven in the realization of and testimony to my oneness with him. But whoever is of such a nature that he will deny me before men, I also will deny him before my Father who is in heaven.  Do not suppose that I came with the result that my coming would throw peace suddenly upon the earth. I did not come with the result that my coming would throw peace, but a sword. For I came with the result that my coming puts a man at variance with his father, and a daughter against her mother, and the newly married wife against her mother-in-law, and the enemies of a man shall be those of his household. He who has an affection for father or mother above that which he has for me, is not worthy of me. And he who has an affection for son or daughter above that which he has for me, is not worthy of me. And he who does not take his cross and take the same road with me which I take, is not worthy of me. He who has found his soul-life, shall ruin and render it useless, and he who has passed a sentence of death upon his soul-life for my sake shall find it. He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives Him who sent me on a mission. He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. And whoever shall give one of these lesser ones in their station in life a drink of cool water in the name of a pupil, assuredly I am saying to you, he shall positively not lose his reward. And it came to pass that when Jesus finished giving detailed orders to the twelve disciples, He went away from that place for the purpose of teaching and of making a public proclamation in their cities with that formality, gravity, and authority which must be listened to and obeyed.

(from The New Testament: An Expanded Translation by Kenneth S. Wuest Copyright © 1961 by Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. All rights reserved.)

WOW.  What an amazing difference.  Here you quickly understand that Jesus was merely suggesting that HIS coming to the earth would bring choas to the world.  The “word” sword is simply being used as a metaphore to point out that the “demons seed” generations of the world would not accept him and his teachings (those of His Father YHWH, our Heavenly Father), and the RESULT of this….

HUGE PARADIGM SHIFT

… would be fighting and chaos.

But who would be fighting and where would the chaos be coming from?

Go back and re-read Matthew 24, Luke 21 and Mark 13 to wrap your arms around the fact that we Christians will be persecuted.

This doesn’t mean we “fight back”.  This means we ….

ACT EXACTLY LIKE JESUS DID!!

Are we not supposed to all be like Jesus?  Are we not to become consecrated and sanctified unto Him?  Are we not supposed to be PRECISELY THE IMAGE OF THE LIVING GOD here on earth.

 The Consequences of This Misunderstanding

 Of the 27 verses that mention the word “sword” in the New Testament, arguably only one or two others, when “cherry picked” and taken out of context MIGHT indicate that maybe there is some “sword related” activity.  But when your realize that the KING OF KINGS is clear that HE is coming back to kick some cheek on our behalf, you have to remember this IS a double standard.  Vengence is MINE sayeth …. WHO?  I believe it is THE LORD.

 So in closing let’s just investigate the likely sad and utterly horrible consequences of “some Christians” trying to “righteously” defend themselves.

 Two Words.

 BRANCH DIVIDIANS

There is not a single one amongst those of us who study the NWO and the “conspiracy” facts that does not realize the ATF attack on the Branch Dividians was uncalled for and taken to extremes.  There are even articles and lots of documentary video evidence that these people, man, woman and child, were BURNED SACRIFICIALLY by these demon possessed freaks in our government.

 Is it possible there MIGHT have been some borderline wrong doings going on there with their policies on marriage and such?  Maybe.  But the testimonies of those that supposedly impeached Mr. Koresh, were called into serious question.

 And why aren’t there TANKS burning down houses in UTAH right now because of their Mormon “like” questionable belief systems.

 I submit to you that if there WERE NOT WEAPONS on the campus of the Branch Dividians, they likely would still be there today.

 The point here is NOT that the Dividians were decent operation.  The point here is that “they” gave the government REASON to go in and burn the place down.

 Don’t give the forces of EVIL a reason to come into your home and kill your children in a fire fight!!  Do you have any idea how many people are being arrested for having arsenals in their homes even though they are in their legal limit of registered weapons?

Summary In Jesus Name

 If you behave like Jesus and the apostles did, and you BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit “has your back”, and you believe the scriptures like “If God is for us, who can be against us” then what is your ultimate goal of considering any action other than that of PEACE AND LOVE?

 Maybe the soldier dressed in black, pointing his weapon at your home, is a Christian.  Maybe as he is following orders he is praying “In the Name of Jesus, let this family surrender that they may LIVE and proclaim the GLORY OF GOD!”

 AND THEN YOU SHOOT!

 Never mind the millions of peaceful true Christians that will suffer because of the lies the media will tell about your “stand off”.  Never mind the persecution the rest of us will face because they slander your name and tell the world that THOSE DARN CHRISTIANS are a threat to us ALL.

 Maybe your bullet hits the target. Maybe you kill that soldier.  Maybe you killed the ONLY Christian in the entire group.

 AND THEN ….

Luke 21:36

36 Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

 

LET US HOPE, YOU WILL BE COUNTED WORTHY

I for one will take NO CHANCES

I for one will surrender to the CROSS

I will DIE PEACEFULLY for my KING!

TRUE JESUS-LIKE BEHAVIOR DURING PERSECUTION

29 thoughts on “>> NO GUNS! <<”

  1. Cant disagree w/ yr main doctrines, and I do respect the large amount of research you did to form them. Have you heard of the spurious nature of Jn.6:4? whereby Eusebius locked Nicholaitinism into the Church to make himself the Vicar & crown Constantine head of the Church? This destroyed the 70 weeks timeline of Jesus’s ministry and ruined the parallel Gospels. Ref: Michael Rood, expert in early Heb. & Greek texts.
    As for Rom.13, I’m not about to condone anything that contradicts the Word, In these times when the rebellious ones control the govts, and the media & the schools: we are sliding over the PIT because two generations have been propagandized into atheism and disrespect for our founders and traditions.
    You’re right – those who walk in the Light the Father will cover w/ His Hand – but some will be martyred. Having walked w/ the Lord 20yrs, I know it is possible to have answers to problems and direction for the way out – and guns are NOT the answer……. Amen

  2. God Bless you John,
    I have this “protection” argument once in awhile.

    I’m totally in agreement with you.
    If you use a gun as a “Christian”
    1) Where is Christ’s LOVE? How is this demonstrated?
    How does this show Jesus in a good way?
    2) Do you want to be the Orbiter of someones life?
    3) Spiritual damage to self “WILL” occur!

    YOU ARE RIGHT BROTHER!!!!
    PRAY PRAY PRAY!

    In Jesus,
    Mark

  3. Praise Jesus for you John!

    I greatly appreciate you so much. You are certainly chosen for such a time as this.

    Your always in my prayer’s.

    With no disrespect to brother Johnny Cirucci, but if you could have heard me yelling all the Amen and Hallelujah’s as you stand up with the sword! Husband and son came running into my prayer room wondering what happened.

    It was still a great show as always.

    God bless, well done and sleep well.

    Mary

  4. Dear Johnny, I am happy to report that I stand behind you on what you stood for
    last night with John. I am sorry it had to end that way, but it had to!!!!!!
    You were very polite, and as owner of the broadcast there should have been no
    other comments after you made your stand.

    I was shocked and elated that I have found someone who is REAL ENOUGH TO PROCLAIM THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!! I am soooo proud of your obedience to Jesus!!!
    It matters to me, for one—thank you so much!

    I just came off a 3 day fast, and this is one thing I was asking the Father about.
    I kept wondering why, if we are filled with the Holy Spirit are we taking into our own hands how to stand against the evil one? We are on the cross, and from there we
    exist………you were totally right in everything you said!!!!! My life is in His hands—
    does it not talk about how Jesus disappeared in the midst of the crowd? Did Stephen throw back the stones that were killing him? No he saw heaven open up and the glory of God. How about the babies who are being murdered, is there a defense for them??

    Paul was stoned how many times??? Peter and the rest killed………THAT’S HOW THE GOSPEL WAS SPREAD, ask China, Jews, Christians, etc…..all over the world. For heavens sake he told Moses that he would send the hornets to destroy his enemies………on and on it goes!

    THANK YOU FOR SPEAKING TRUTH IN THE MIDST OF THE FIRE!!!!!!!!!

    LOVE YOU BROTHER, LINDA

  5. HELLO JOHN,

    You are right on, you did and said right! on the show tonight.

    I feel Guns are ok for hunting, even though I grieved the last time I killed a squirrel years ago, probably won’t do that again anytime soon! you are right, we should walk in the spirit and trust Jesus with our life’s and our loved ones’s life’s. They were going to stone Jesus and he became invisible to them and walked away. many years ago I walked up to a group of my friends in a parking lot, and because of where I was at the time spiritually, under God’s wing, he did not want me to be influenced by them to fall back into that lifestyle of partying and drunkenness, I was completely invisible to them! praise Jesus! Later when I was stronger he sent me to them to tell them of his love for them, they all wanted to know where I had been for the last months, because they had not seen me for awhile. I knew then for sure, that they had not seen me, when I was standing in their midst. I was able to lead some of them to repent and follow Jesus! anyway I am sure that God decides who lives and dies it is not my job to make that decision for him by shooting anyone no matter what the situation! I am a Prepper of sorts but I am not going to shoot anyone defending my supplies, in fact I will feed as many that I can for as long as I can, and preach to and heal them as well! I learned along time ago how much Jesus loves and cares for me! all I need is him! and I can hardly wait for my mission here to be over so I can go home!

    God Bless,
    Gary

  6. John I want thank you so much for staying your very strong convictions about defending yourself with a gun. I know you are probably getting blasted by lots of people right now and it doesn’t feel real good, but you will receive an eternal reward for telling people the right way to live in Christ. What it really boils down to is weather you really and truly trust the Father with your physical and spiritual body or not. I do not think most “Christians” really do they just give lip service and He is sick of it. God bless you my brother and be strengthened by the renewal of your spirit by the Holy Spirit!

    Jeff

  7. We are with you.

    Excellent catch, John. Your faith and understanding just jumped up another notch on Gods belt… No killing…can’t picture having Gods protection and having to resort to deadly violence. Amen!

    Allen

  8. I am SOOOOOO proud of you!

    THE FATHER showed me tonight we ARE TRULY sister and brother born of different mothers! HALLELUYAH!♡♡♡

    BLESSINGS AND SHALOM!♥
    Maxine

    1. Awwwww thank you so so much Maxine. It is, bar none, THE most awkward position to be place in as a radio show host. But God will hold me responsible for these things people say and “THIS MINISTRY” shall not espouse such behavior period. Not on my watch. We are either believers in the power of the Holy Spirit or we get what the Bible says we will get – JUDGMENT AND HELL.

      God bless you sister
      THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

  9. I thought you handled yourself well with John Cirucci. I don’t own a gun but find the subject very interesting especially when dealing with Nazis in WWII

    I found some interesting dialogue below. I like you believe God equips us in the moment with faith. I prayed around the border of my house that the blood of Jesus would cover us and the Lord would place warrior angels every 10 yards. I did that while walking the perimeter of my house with my wife and kids. I feel sorry for the sucker who shows up with bad intentions.

    Praise Jesus

    James

    1. Thank you James God bless you. I really needed to hear this and I believe the Lord used you to make me feel better.

      Check this out. The Lord showed me precisely why Luke 22:35 is in the Bible. I will just leave you with little write-up I did for another person.

      Look very close at this scripture

      Luke 22:36-38

      36 Then He said to them, “But now, he who has a money bag, let him take it, and likewise a knapsack; and he who has no sword, let him sell his garment and buy one. 37 For I say to you that this which is written must still be accomplished in Me: ‘And He was numbered with the transgressors.’ For the things concerning Me have an end.”

      38 So they said, “Lord, look, here are two swords.”

      And He said to them, “It is enough.”
      NKJV

      The only reason Jesus told them to get a couple swords was so He could fulfill the prophecy (in green).

      Isa 53:12
      And He was numbered with the transgressors,
      And He bore the sin of many,
      And made intercession for the transgressors.
      NKJV

      Please notice that

      1) None of them had swords, that’s why Jesus said to get some swords. This means that all 12 apostles did not ever carry swords for self defense or for any reason

      2) Notice that when one of the apostles came running up to Jesus he said “here Lord are two (2) swords” and Jesus said that is enough. Why in the world would 2 swords be enough for thirteen (13) people do defend themselves. Its not. Jesus was only fulfilling the Isaiah 53:13 prophecy, so they would accuse him of being a rebel when he was not.

      3) Then later Peter uses one of the very 2 swords they had and cuts the ear of one of Jesus’ accusers and Jesus rebukes Peter and says

      John 18:10-11

      10 Then Simon Peter, having a sword, drew it and struck the high priest’s servant, and cut off his right ear. The servant’s name was Malchus. 11 So Jesus said to Peter, “Put your sword into the sheath. Shall I not drink the cup which My Father has given Me?”
      NKJV

      And he heals the ear of the servant telling Peter to put the sword away.

      This had absolutely nothing to do with self defense. Jesus and the apostles did not need to defend themselves. The operated with the power and authority of GOD

      Just as we are commanded too.

      God bless you

  10. Hi Johnny

    I have just listened to your latest Podcast with Johnny Cerucci, Wow, thank you for standing up to the bullies.

    This issue of being some kind of Rambo like figure and going down in a bloodbath of knife attacks and bullets to protect your wife and kids against either NWO goons, or marauding apocalypse zombies who have come to steal your supplies and kill your family? is an issue that is emerging, perhaps more divisive amongst professing talk show Christians than the ‘timing of the rapture’ debate.

    It is precisely this same issue that put me off listening to Doug Hagmann, he embarrassed a brother live on his show and basically judged him unsaved & unworthy to be in the ‘christian’s club’ for not manning up by laying aside his Bible & taking up his gun.

    This issue caused a bit of a ruckus a while back, with Shannon Davis at Omega man radio who took your stance, and ended up being ostracised by Hagmann/Quayle et al, and losing his co- host pastor John Kyle over the fall out.

    I listen to this with some bemusement from over here in England because as you know we, as a population do not have guns, if we do, they are licenced hunting firearms, regularly inspected by the police & kept under lock & key.

    It seems to me that the pro-bloodbath proponents always imagine a Hollywood-esque scenario, of good guys v’s bad guys, argue their point from a spirit of fear, and tend to strongly lash out & criticise, even proclaim hellfire Judgment on their ‘cowardly’ opponents, whereas the opposing view is not from a cowardly stance, but from a fear of God stance, understanding that murder is murder and that this act would place them at odds with their salvation through wilfull sin.

    How would it work out practically? Once the man of the house has butchered all of the miscreants and saved his wife and kids, does he then imagine kneeling in prayer and repenting?

    The imagined scenario’s are replete with ‘what if’s’, what if the man of the house was an elderly gentleman in a mobility scooter, would that make him less of a man for not being able to whip out an AK-47 and save his elderly wife? What about the Iraqi Christian man who’s family was captured by isis, they tortured his child, slicing off the boys fingers in front of him, telling him that if he renounced Jesus that they would stop, the boy pleaded with his dad not to renounce the Lord, they both went home to glory that same day.

    I believe, that to take up arms is to deny Christ by action rather than words, I guess that makes me a coward, but then I don’t have the choice of having a weapon, if I did, I wouldn’t.

    Satan is having a field day with this issue.

    God bless you Johnny

    Your brother in Christ

    Simon.

    1. Wow praise Jesus for you brother. Your email is profound and touches deeply and comprehensively at the problem. Why people claim to be Christians and weird the power of God and the Holy Spirit yet in the same breath disobey dozens of self sacrificing love mandates to save people souls blows my mind. When you read Mark 16:18 (just on example) it clearly implies those who do not have the “faith” are simply not true “believers”.

      This one attribute will separate the sheep from the sheep (Ez 34:17) and the Wise Virgins from the Foolish (Matthew 25).

      God bless you brother I so needed to get this email from you.

      LOVE IS EVERYTHING
      As Jesus said it is the NUMBER TWO most Important Commandment. It’s the foundation of every action we take.

  11. Dear John,
    Brother, this is a quick note to encourage and commend you for your defense of the Gospel.
    My wife and I just last week have lost our best friends of over 12 years to this issue and other
    closely related “American rights” issues. It’s like; “Jews seek a sign, Greeks seek wisdom and
    Americans seek their rights!” (My paraphrase of course) Brother, keep preaching Christ crucified.
    This latest incident in Oregon has brought out the true beliefs of every blog-talker I listen to on
    this “controversy” of carnal weapon defense. I think that the Lord Jesus is about to let the American
    Christians be thrown into the refiners fire. The Father HATES pride and boy, American’s are full of it!
    Much of the world’s history it too cleaned up for our own good.
    I have NO doubt that first century Christian women were often viciously raped by Roman centurions and
    Christian children were likewise abused by their persecutors; yet their husbands and fathers who
    persevered in their faith were no doubt commended by our Lord and their whole families saved.
    That is an uncompromised PROMISE of our Lord Jesus!

    Scott H

  12. Hi John sorry for late reply! Yeah, I’m still waiting to hear back from a company – hoping too this week. Thanks for keeping me in your prayers, I really need them and appreciate them.

    Oh, happy new year to you also brother. The days are flying past already, can’t quite believe it.

    How are you, are you well? I see there was s bit of a problem on Sunday’s show? I hope it doesn’t reflect badly on you but gathering from bits of the show I’ve heard, I know you are spot on. Like you mentioned, none of the disciples or apostles ran around with swords! It’s all about love.

    There is a lot of people sadly who go in for all this gun defence etc especially hearing from other Christian radio shows; namely the Hagmanns with Steve Quayle etc and God bless them because they do a wonderful work mostly but the gun thing is a problem!

    Myself, being from the UK, don’t have that issue because all guns are outlawed so it’s hard for us to understand what goes on a lot over your way. Though I understand the amendment for guns in your constitution for use against tyrannical government!

    But it’s all going to play out to the Father’s Will so let be done.

    Thanks again for everything John you’re a true servant to the Lord who feeds the sheep. May He bless you abundantly and keep you in His protection this coming year.

    Blessings,

    Jimmy

    1. Amen brother yes its been a bit of a rough week but things will work out. Many people do not understand the incredible power we are given through the Holy Spirit to protect our families without any violence; but yes amen we are working it all out and we’ve even spoken with Johnny Cirucci and he admitted even he gets pretty worked up about these things. So God have mercy on all our souls.

  13. Dear Brother John
    I Thank God for your stance on deciding “whose side you are on”, as it is prevalent in the alternative media so called Christians shows to castigate people who decide to follow the Word of God, instead of trying to save our lives, the bible has been used to pit people in their places, if you do not defend your family with weapon you are an infidel and not a Christian. If you do not store up god silver stock pile then you are the same. I have looked on the preparedness sight and they quite expensive, what about people who are not able to afford to stock, are we saying that God will ignore us?

    You are very right that as a person on radio show you do have a responsibility that what guests exposed to your listeners are doctrinally correct. God is no respectors of persons, we are to fear God and not man. Yes I do know that if you go against the popular views then you will be ostracised by the so called gatekeepers.

    Currently, there is a fraction within the Elite Watchmen circles, where Nathan Leal had resigned from the upcoming “Hear the Watchmen Conference in Dallas”, due to one of the speakers link with new age. He contacted the person and other so called Watchmen and Preachers but was castigated and accused of judging, they clearly taken sides. Listeners have responded to people involved to ask whether this is right only to be accused of causing a division within the body of Christ. Brother John I know you are a strong Prayer warrior and the Watchmen circle need your prayer this minute and ongoing, we all need o pray for Unity.

    A few years ago Shannon Davis, omegaman took your stand on weapon and contacted the same radio show and its watchmen, he was cast out as being a fear monger and foolish, they also place pressure on his regular guest John Kyle so he left Omegaman. Prior to Marcus Samuel’s (Pine Ridge Warrior) death, he was appearing on Omegaman and pressure was put on him that support will be withdrawn if he associate with Omegaman, we read between the line. It is sad that we have come to this that through pride of flesh the deevil has been let into reek havoc in the body of Christ. We are not call to be superstar, we are to drop our intellect and let the Holy Ghost work through us to bring Glory to the body of Christ and to save the lost.

    PLEASE PRAY FOR THE SO CALLED WATCHMEN that God will bring unity and truth to them. For Nathan Leal, Benjamin Baruch and Shannon Davis Omegaman for standing for the truth went it is not popular that God protection will be upon them. Most of all for a VICTORIOUS CHURCH WITHOUT SPOT OR WRINKLE, THAT WE GO FORTH IN THE POWER OF OUR LORD JESUS TO BE WITNESS TO THIS DARK AND LOST WORLD. May God help us to find as we repent of our disobedience and unforgiveness, may we walk in Righteousness and be found worthy.

    Shalom from UK.

  14. Hi Bro Johnny

    I thought I write in to say I support your stand on being non-violent/lethal towards our aggressors. I am worried at the stand some online-ministry pastors have taken. Hope prayers will help them see reason.

    It’s kind of coincidental that just before your latest episode (Confessions of an Economic Hit Man), I came across this verse during my daily bible read and it really stuck out:

    Let anyone who has an ear listen: If you are to be taken captive, into captivity you go; if you kill with the sword, with the sword you must be killed. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. (Rev 13:9-10)

    Guess this was what prompted me to send this email. I also want to thank you for doing what you do at tribulation-now. Your broadcasts have definitely kept me grounded as a believer.

    Just to let you know I am listening via iTunes podcast from Malaysia and China (VPNed).

  15. I just want to say that what scares me the most about “Christians” using guns against anyone who has evil motives is that if they shoot you, you will go to heaven, but if you shoot them, you are probably sending them to hell. Have you ever heard any of these gun promoting Christians warn you to please allow the person to make peace with Jesus before shooting them? Are they planning on pleading with them first to know the Lord? I have not heard of this. It is terrifying. What are they thinking? Whosoever seeks to save his life will lose it.

    1. The assumption that a “christian” goes to Heaven after theY kill someone is probably a very very bad assumption. When Jesus said “He who lives by the sword dies by the sword” he wasn’t talking about someone going to Heaven. The gate is NARROW and there are FEW that shall find it. This includes people who “believe” they are Christians. We must FEAR GOD!

  16. GOD bless you and thank you for protecting us from inaccurate teachings with such a love and boldness my brother. While listening to the radio show illuminati unmasked and Johnny Cirruci began to talk about using guns for protection I immediately started feeling sick to my stomach. I am a man of GOD that was transformed by the word of GOD and I never once see anything in there that tells us to kill in defense or for any other reason. and the SPIRIT OF GOD in me was screaming no your weapons are not carnal.

    1. Amen brother Amen

      We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”

      with the sword must he be slain.

      Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.

  17. Great show Pastor John ,

    So glad you choose to do Tribulation Now. All us tribulation Nowers are so blessed because of your decision .

    2 testimonies Pastor John .

    In the days when no one locked their doors in our small county community The Holy Spirit was my protector. A man in 1973 from our area who was a schizophrenic , bless his heart : He had a episode and came to my house and walked into my house . He was coming towards me with his hands out stretched towards my neck with his eyes glazed looking like he was determined to chock and kill me. I started backing up and the only thing I could think of was to start praying in tongues. Thank you Jesus for his sake and mine. He never even put his hands on my neck. Praise the Lord when I started praying in tongues the prayer brought him immediately out of his episode and he came to his self and looked at me with sane eyes and said ,’ What is wrong with you. Your acting crazy.”
    He then turned and went out the door got in his car and left.

    The same thing happened too 2 family members who were about to be robbed at a train station with no help around. The robbers came up to them and started threatening them to give them their money and one of the family members started praying as loud as he could in tongues. The minuet he did he said they looked like they had seen a ghost ( are angels to protect them ) they turned and ran off.

    I don’t know about bug/ are pepper spay but feel so blessed that I do know first hand about the help and protection our Beloved Holy Spirit of our Holy Lord Heavenly Father God gives his children. To him be all glory , honor and praise.

    God bless you Pastor John and keep you safe forever and ever, keep on telling God’s truth ,

    Love,
    Hickle and Nativaele

    PS , That dear schizophrenic soul was healed/delivered from that in his last years and he passed away as a believer praise the Lord when he was in his 90’s

    Come Holy Lord Jesus Christ come , we wait for you and look for you with longing in our hearts for the day when you come for us in the Rapture. May all us Tribulation Nowers be found worthy to be taken when you do come. Amen

  18. A Dear John letter :))

    Thank you for being such a blessing!!!
    Thank you for being consistent and faithful in the face of strong opposition, we really appreciate that.
    Thank you for stopping your guest for advising the body to take up weapons !… Thank you for protecting the sheep, it does not go unnoticed.
    Thank you for continuing the show on your own, on air… Even though you have awesome assistants behind the scene, bless them from us too.
    You have been our balance many times when we get opposition for our stand… Bless you for that also.
    There are probably many writing to you, but we just though we should send a short message through to encourage you to keep going because your work is making a difference in our lives. People just don’t understand why we think the way we do, about Salvation and the current events surrounding all of us now.
    The finish line is just ahead Brother… Just a few more steps.
    Blessings

  19. GOD bless you and thank you for protecting us from inaccurate teachings with such a love and boldness my brother. While listening to the radio show illuminati unmasked and Johnny Cirruci began to talk about using guns for protection I immediately started feeling sick to my stomach. I am a man of GOD that was transformed by the word of GOD and I never once seen anything in there that tells us to kill in defense or for any other reason. THE SPIRIT OF GOD in me was screaming no your weapons are not carnal. This is something that I have got to remind people of constantly as a preacher and minister of the gospel. Anyways immediately after I was finished listening to that particular show I turned on my audio bible which is called the WORD OF PROMISE (so it doesn’t show the scripture being played) and Psalm 44 came on and it says this. Psalm 44:4-8 You are my King, O God; Command victories for Jacob. Through You we will push down our enemies; Through Your name we will trample those who rise up against us. For I will not trust in my bow, Nor shall my sword save me. But You have saved us from our enemies, And have put to shame those who hated us. In God we boast all day long, And praise Your name forever. Hallelujah, hallelujah powerful reminder! Anyways I thought you would appreciate that is much as I did. Praise JESUS for you and your show you guys have blessed me in so many ways. By the way GOD uses me in powerful ways. HE has used me to cast out many demons which I have on video and heal many who are sick which I also have on video. I would love to come on your show some time and share my testimony and describe some amazing miracles I have seen with documented evidence all glory to JESUS our LORD! Example of one that happened recently was a woman came up to me in church in which I am in a leadership position but not the pastor. Anyways she came to me because she knows GOD uses me to heal the sick and she said she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and she wanted to be healed and I said ok I grant you your request in JESUS name. You spirit of infirmity (which is what THE SPIRIT OF GOD said it was) I break your power and cancel your assignment now in JESUS MIGHTY NAME come out! Then she fell back under the power of GOD which thank GOD my friend was there to catch her because I almost always have a catcher when I pray for someone which is usually my wife praise GOD! Anyways so she falls on the floor and just begins to weep and weep with makeup running all over her face and she was there for about 10 mins basically being rocked under the power of GOD. So finally she gets up and she says I’m healed there is no more pain! Well then later after church I went to my brother and sisters in CHRIST home and she was there and she said “you didn’t know this but when you prayed for me I had hives all over my whole body and when I got home I took off all of my clothes and looked in the mirror and they were all gone.” So not only was she healed of fibromyalgia which is pain all over the body which almost is always a spirit of infirmity but she was healed of hives and she showed me and others the marks that were left behind and they were almost cleared up! Hallelujah praise the MOST HIGH GOD!! I live a super natural life and I would love to share it with my brethren on your show sometime. Anyways THE LORD bless you and keep you! Your brother in CHRIST.

    Aaron

What is the Strong Delusion? What is the Lie? (2 Thes 2:11), It is the fallen angels (aliens) telling us that "they" are our creators.
