Secret no. 1: No one has ascended to heaven

If you die today, where will go?

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)?

[Also read: 3 Shocking Reasons Why Jesus Did Not Have Long Hair]

Secret no. 5: The Sabbath Day is on the seventh day

Look at this calendar; which is the first and last 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.

[Also read: What does the Bible say about the New Year Celebration?]

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.

[If you want to learn more, read, “What does the Bible say about Christmas?”]

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.”

[Also read, “5 Compelling Reasons You Shouldn’t Worship Angels.”]

Secret no. 12: We should not pray to the saints

Catholic painting saint

Some church groups declare someone as a saint.

They would then pray to that saint.

However, doesn’t this lead to idolatry?

Obviously, yes.

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.

Is this the church?

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.

  1. Precious Likontsane, It is a life long privilege to learn the will of God in our lives, here are a few scriptures (and my paraphrases). Look each up, as they as each state some things that are the Will of God for our lives. These are good stepping stones to begin to see when we study the bible it will exhort us to understand that “here a little and there a little” (Isa 28:10, 13) that the entire Word of God is full of the Will of God for our lives.
    1Thess 4:1-3, Exhort the Lord and keep the commandments.
    Rom 12:1-2 and Col 3:10 Be a living sacrifice of service, don’t be conformed to the world, be transformed by the renewing of your mind. The mind is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created us which is Jesus who is the Word of God., and the bible which is the written Word of God.
    Eph 6:6-8 Be a servant as Christ was a servant, serving to please God.
    1Thess 5:14-18 Comfort others, be patient, do good, rejoice, pray, give thanks.,
    1Pet 2:15 Do good to put to silence the ignorance of the foolish.
    1Pet 3:17 and 1 Pet 4:19 Do good even if we suffer for it and commit our lives to doing good as though we do it to the Creator.

      • Hi Joshua, the word BIBLE is deriving from the word BIBLIA which means BOOKS. Because the bible cannot be regarded as a Book but a collection of books withing one Book. Borrowed from the Latin word ‘BIBLIOTHECA’ which means LIBRARY. As we see a collection of books in a library all under one roof, hence we have a collection of books in ONE, we call the Bible. Hope this answers your statement. But YES, I cannot but 100% agree with you that the Bible IS the HOLY WORD OF GOD. May God bless you my dear friend and READ the word of God in Prayer and not only know it, but LIVE it. Pierre Zerafa from MALTA.

Everything I just read makes a lot of sense, excepting about souls, last year february 22nd, my deceased sister of 20 years came to me in a dream, she had no voice, but was trying to tell me something about my son as I saw him in the dream just standing next to her, she seemed very sad, just pointing to my son in the dream, the very next day my son was murdered, if I was thinking right I would have stopped him from going to the shop, pls explain this visit
    To me, as she seemed very alive in the spirit

    • Hi Marina,

      I understand that this might be difficult to explain. However, the Scripture is clear that when a person dies, he really dies. He doesn’t have a “soul” that goes everywhere on earth. In your case, it is just a dream. In the same manner, we can dream of someone but that doesn’t mean that person is dead or that dead person is visiting us.

      • Hi Joshua,

        Thanks for the response. You’ve shared alot of sound doctrine here which is great! Surprisingly alot of people do not know these things and much more because unfortunately do not read the bible thoroughly.
        Another few verses I found interesting on the topic of church buildings are Exodus 20. 25-26. Just thought it was interesting how most church’s are built from dressed stone and have steps going to the entrance…

        Back on the topic of spirits, I believe what you say about the spirit of Samuel being an imposterous one to most likely be true, whether an evil one, or one sent by God to tell Saul of his not so good future. I must ask then what do you make of Matthew 17.3? When Moses and Elijah spoke to Jesus?

        Kind regards,

        For Matthew 17:3, it’s a vision. It is like watching a movie. There are movies now that the actors are already dead. Yet, we can still watch their movies. In the same manner, that’s the similar case in the vision of Matthew 17:3.

  5. You may not find the word trinity in the BIBLE, but you certainly find within the pages of Elohim’s Word both His Son and the Holy Spirit and that both preceded from the the Father. The Son said: I and the Father are ONE… and who so ever shall blaspheme the Holy Spirit shall have no chance, but shall be received into the Lake of Fire. Hear oh Israel, the Lord Your God, your God is One… So Worship They Them! I tell you the TRUTH, and my testimony is True, We are made in the image of the true and living God. We are both Body, Soul and spirit. We that are of the Light bare witness of that Light. God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit are ONE, for God did divide Him Self to do a work and for this we serve and worship Elohim, (both a singular and a plural verb) through obedience. Our God is a TRIUNE GOD by His own nature.

    • Hi David,

      Thanks for your comment.

      For one, I don’t deny the existence of the Holy Spirit. However, it is not a person as the trinity doctrine would like us to believe. The Son and Father is one in a sense that they are fully united in thoughts, words, and actions. They are one in their mission. They always agree. When the Bible say one it doesn’t necessary mean they are numerically one. When Adam and Eve became one, that didn’t they became one person, but rather they become one in relationship. If you look into the Hebrew word of the “God is one” expression in Deuteronomy, it doesn’t mean numerical one, but rather one in unity.

      Sorry, but as hard you may try, the Scripture doesn’t teach three Gods into One being. It is just a foolish attempt of man to explain the nature of God and sadly, Satan used it to deceive Christianity.

      Regards,
      Joshua

  6. I agree that in the Scripture there is no word “trinity”. It is only a  concept to simplified the Oneness of God the Father, Son & Holy Spirit from the Bible.

    God, in monotheistic thought, is conceived of as the supreme being, creator, and principal object of faith. Being omnipotent (all-powerful), omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (all-present) and omnibenevolent (all-good) as well as having an eternal and necessary existence.
    God is most often held to be incorporeal (immaterial).

    In the scripture God introduced Himself as
    God the FATHER, the Godhead-the essence of the Divine Being. We cannot reach Him but He reach us through His SON(Colossians 2:9) & we feel Him by His HOLY SPIRIT(John 14:16-18).

    Jesus leave us His commandment in John 13:34-35. Godbless us all.

    Best regards,
    Paul

  7. It is only the holy Catholic Church that’s 100% biblical. Protestantism is man made not of God is 40,000 cults which are pagan! Paul said hold fast to both the written word and the verbal word. So it’s not just the Bible. The Bible is a Catholic book the protestant Bible is an incomplete and corrupted Catholic book. Jesus founded but one Church the ONE HOLY CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH on the infallible Rock of Peter two millennia ago. You have the Baptist cult. The Methodist cult. The Episcopalian cult. The Anglican cult. The cult of England etc. Then you get the Occult Mormonism,JW’s,UCG,
    Christadelphians,perhaps RCG.
    There’s NO salvation outside the holy Catholic Church. Jesus meant it literally when he said you must eat his flesh and drink his blood to have life eternal life in you. A wafer or cracker does not give life as Jesus said. Also why did the Jews walk away in disgust-because they new what Jesus was saying and he meant it literally. Look up Eucharist miracle of Lanciano. Watch the warning or illumination of conscience by Christine Watkins. God bless. Praise Jesus and Mary always!!!
