Secret no. 1: No one has ascended to heaven
Acts 2:29, 34 tells us:
“Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day… David did not ascend into the heavens.”
If there’s anyone who should be in heaven, it should be David.
Yet, the Bible tells us that he has not ascended into heaven.
John 5:28-29 tells us that the dead are in their graves when Yahshua will return:
“Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are IN THE GRAVES shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation” (John 5:28-29).
Finally, Yahshua (Jesus Christ) tells us this in John 3:13:
“No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, The Son of Man.”
Secret no. 2: There is no immortal soul
The Bible is clear that souls will die:
“Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die” (Ezekiel 18:4, 20).
“The soul that sinneth, it shall DIE. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him.”
Secret no. 3: The Bible prohibits the making of graven image and using them in worship
While the biggest church group of the “Christian” world promotes the use of statues in their worship, the Bible strongly condemns it.
We read in Exodus 20:4:
You shall NOT make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them.
Secret no. 4: Jesus Christ (Yahshua) didn’t have long hair
If you travel back in time, Jews in Christ’s day didn’t have long hair.
Christ is a plain-looking man who had the same features as his fellow Jews at that time.
Later, he inspired Paul to write these words:
Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him (I Corinthians 11:14)?

Secret no. 5: The Sabbath Day is on the seventh day
Exodus 20:8-9 tells us:
Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God.
The Bible is clear that the Sabbath isn’t on the first day, but on the SEVENTH day. If you look at your calendar today, which one is the seventh day?
The answer is obvious.
However, a lot of people think it is Sunday.
Secret no. 6: January 1 is not the first day of the year
In the Bible, the year starts in the spring.
Exodus 12:1-2 tells us:
Now the Eternal spoke to Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, “This month shall be your beginning of months; it shall be the FIRST MONTH OF THE YEAR to you.”
If you read one chapter later, that month is named:
And Moses said to the people:
“Remember this day in which you went out of Egypt, out of the house of bondage; for by strength of hand the Lord brought you out of this place. No leavened bread shall be eaten. On this day you are going out, in the month Abib” (Exodus 13:3-4).
In the Bible, the year starts in the spring and not in the dead of winter.
Secret no. 7: December 25 is not the birth date of Jesus Christ
Scholars and Bible experts agree that December 25 ISN’T the birthday of Jesus.
The Bible shows us that Mary and Joseph went to Bethlehem for a Roman census.
Such a census didn’t happen during winter when roads are in sorry conditions.
Not only that, but shepherds are out in the field, which is not typically the case during a cold season.

Secret no. 8: Jesus wasn’t resurrected on a Sunday morning
Jesus said this:
“For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth” (Matthew 12:40).
Christ was very clear.
He meant exactly what He said – three days and three nights.
The popular belief that Jesus was buried on a Friday afternoon and then resurrected on a Sunday morning does not equate to three days and three nights.
It is not 72 hours.
So, who lied?
Is it Christ or the pastors and priests who taught you a Sunday resurrection?
Secret no. 9: God will not burn sinners in hell forever
The Bible tells us that the wages of sin is death.
That’s in Romans 6:23:
“For the wages of sin is DEATH, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
So, why would people teach that wicked human beings will live forever in hell and be burned throughout eternity?
That makes God a sadistic and awful God.
Thankfully, this is not the case.
We read in Malachi 4:1:
“For behold, the day is coming,
Burning like an oven,
And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble.
And the day which is coming shall burn them up,”
Says the Lord of hosts,
“That will leave them neither root nor branch.
In verse 3 we read:
You shall trample the wicked,
For they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet
On the day that I do this,”
Says the Lord of hosts.
They will be ashes.
They will not burn forever in hell.
Secret no. 10: Being born again does not mean conversion
A lot of Christians today will tell you that you need to be born again – meaning, you need to be converted to Christianity.
However, a careful study of the expression “born again” in the Bible doesn’t mean that way.
Here’s what Jesus said in Matthew 3:5-8:
Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’ The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
Jesus Christ is referring to being born in the Kingdom of God as spirit.
He isn’t talking about conversion.
A man who is born again is someone who is like the wind.
You can hear it, but you can’t tell where it comes from and where it goes.
That’s a characteristic of a person who is already a spiritual being.

Secret no. 11: We should not worship angels
Because of the majestic and most often terrible appearance and description of angels, a lot of people are driven to worship them.
However, this should never be the case.
Angels who accept worship are demons.
The bible shows us that the true angels of God don’t accept worship.
We read in Revelation 22:8-9:
“And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things. Then said he to me, See you do it not: for I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.”

Secret no. 12: We should not pray to the saints
Some church groups declare someone as a saint.
They would then pray to that saint.
However, doesn’t this lead to idolatry?
However, do you know it is in vain that you pray to these dead saints?
They are dead already.
And when people die, they don’t know anything anymore.
That’s what the Bible reveals:
“For the living know that they will die;
BUT THE DEAD KNOW NOTHING,
And they have no more reward,
For the memory of them is forgotten” (Ecclesiastes 9:5).
[Also read, “The Shocking Reason We Should Stop Praying to Saints.”]
Secret no. 13: Church in the Bible does not refer to buildings
The Greek word for “church” is ekklesia.
It means calling out.
Church, in the biblical sense, does not refer to buildings, but rather to people.
Observe how the Bible uses the term ‘church.’
“Likewise greet the church that is in their house” (Romans 16:5).
Church in this verse refers to the people.
It would be silly to think that a church building is inside a house.
[For further reading, “What does church mean in the bible?”]
Secret no. 14: Trinity doctrine is not in the Bible
The term Trinity is not found in the Bible.
Its doctrine and teaching aren’t in the Bible as well.

Secret no. 15: Jesus is not the only child of Mary and Joseph
After Jesus was born, Mary and Joseph had other children.
We read in Matthew 13:55-56:
“Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas? And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?”
This also proves that Mary wasn’t a perpetual virgin.
He had sons and daughters later in life.
Secret no. 16: Jesus didn’t go to church on Sundays
Did you know that Jesus didn’t go to church on Sundays?
Instead, He keeps the seventh-day Sabbath.
So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read (Luke 4:16).

Secret no. 17: Satan is the god of this world
If you look around us, you will see a lot of suffering, pain, and death.
Have you ever asked, “Why?”
The answer is simply this:
The world is ruled by Satan.
But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them (II Corinthians 4:3-4).
Old King James rendered this as, “the god of this world.”
Not only that, but Satan is also called the prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2).
Worst of all, Satan deceives the whole world (Revelation 12:9) leading to global deception in all aspects of people’s lives.
