AND THERE ARE MANY ADVERSARIES.....
Keep your friends close and your enemies even closer
By and About
Steve Van Nattan
Before I went on the Web in 1995 I had few dedicated adversaries that I recall. There had been several skirmishes with the wicked, as with the Bible signs in Newaygo, Michigan, but these adversaries had come and were gone. In the case of the Bible signs, the city manager who attacked the signs was gone literally-- to prison.
So, as I added my feeble voice to the cacophony of those eager to be heard around the world, I was aware that someone out there might take umbrage. And, some did.
In the Christian's warfare with evil it is pathetic if the warrior has a designer personality, for he will be more eager to see what the rear echelon thought of him during the battle than what the enemy thought of him. Winston Churchill admitted openly that he went to war for England so that he could write books on war, and himself, that would endear him to the British people and get him elected to Parliament. It worked splendidly, but I consider this a mongrel use of one's life.
One can learn much from one's enemies. Above all else, one can learn where changes must be made. I have found a number of defects courtesy of my enemies, and I have found things I had overlooked. Those who hate the Gospel, and who have really rational minds, never attack. They know that the enemy helps the soldier measure his battle skills and improve his weapons. The most sinister enemy will say nothing about us.
When the enemy mocks at us for cowardice, they may well be right. When the enemy says we were merciless, we need to be sure it was 100% in the cause of righteousness. When the enemy laughs at us, we need to be very sure it is because they are using laughter and derision as a strategic maneuver and that their laughter is not genuine amusement.
Personally, I do not take myself too seriously, so I find it hard to take my enemies very seriously.
Indeed, I find some of them amusing in their observations of me and my family. One fellow mocked at a photo of our family because one of my sons was overweight, and I had just written an article on gluttony. My son has lost weight since then, and I took down the photo. But, the article stands, for it represents the truth.
I find that my enemies on the web commit many desperate acts of violence against me, lying and prevaricating much, and that is just fine with me. When I read their attacks on me and see something that is possibly true, I at once set about to correct it. I know they will never give me credit for that. They ALWAYS claim they put the fear of God into me and that I have become their disciple Etc Etc blah blah.
Prophet Jim down in Orlando, Florida has written to me many times mocking and then alternately using gooey sweet words. He has promised me my own kingdom if I would just jump into the River of Renewal and become a holy roller like him. I presume he would arrange for me to be raised to the rank of Assistant Apostle under his monarchy. If I could arrange to arrive in Orlando when he is in one of his tootie fruity moods, I gather I would be given the key to the Kingdom, but alas, I fear I would arrive when he is having an apocalyptic fit, and he would hold me under when I jumped into the River of Renewal and drown me. I wish Apostle / Prophet Jim would get up a web page and tell you folks how wicked I am. He is a riot. He even prophesied my death some years ago, but his prophecy seems to have been somewhat premature. Alas, it is harder to prophecy in Charismania than to predict the weather in Oregon.
So, I offer a review of my dear fans from the hate club. I have learned a lot about the perversity of the human heart from my enemies, both their heart and my own. So, I am grateful to these people for taking the time to twist the truth and magnify my image abroad. They make my weaknesses glaringly obvious in their generous overstatement, and they make my case against evil, their evil, even more marked in contrast against their desperate defense of themselves. I love it. We all learn things from this exercise. Sometimes the thing which I learn is that I need to laugh at the asses-- the Lord shall have the heathen in derision, so I must learn the ancient divine art of laughing at fools rather than take them seriously.
Thus, we now consider Steve Van Nattan's enemies:
One of the most aggravating pages my adversaries hate and mock at is the prophecy discussion where I talk about the Jews being cannibalized during the Great Tribulation. The people at this forum cannot believe they will eat Jews someday because they will be sent "strong delusion," according to the Apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2:11. The reaction at this site is typical of ungodly people today when confronted with the Bible's description of their behavior under Satanic power. The Bible believer needs to understand that speaking the truth is going to bring severe mockery.
This site attacks King James Bible defenders with white hot hate. This is proof enough that the KJV is THE standard for the Bible in English. It is the Bible God uses, and the Bible Satan hates. His servants reveal their colors well. I am delighted to be found in such good company, such as Peter S Ruckman and Otis Fuller.
A LADY WITH A HEART FULL OF HATE FOR THE TRUGH
She goes to amazing ends to attack my article for kids on Jael, the valliant lady in the Bible who killed an enemy general for Jehovah. Can you tell me what makes this lady hate this story so much?
You will need to type "blessed quietness journal" into your find feature to find the reference to my journal on this page. This is a classic example of what I see all the time where someone likes one of my articles, but they want the truth sugar coated.
This site touts itself as "Progressive." As with Liberal Progressive politics, this sort of religion is vicious in its attack on anyone who has strong opinions. But, they are very strong in opinions about green and ecological issues. The irony is, as is always the case, the editor failed to review many pages where I take the precise same position on issues as they do. This is the Progressive Nazi factor. I love it, and I thank the small minded editor for this attack on our journal. This is the type who will cheer when drones start targeting Bible believers.
I like this guy. Like an interesting number, he hates me and likes me, depending on the article he reads. Now, that is a very open minded man indeed. If I want his imprimatur, I must only post articles he likes. For now, and until I am removed to heaven and my Lord, I do believe I shall continue with the format. Why? Well, if I deleted all the articles my critics did not like, all 1600 articles would have to be taken down. So then, the boy would not come back, or he would mock me for not having an opinion. Thanks, my dear pin head-- very intellectual of you.
This fellow has a broken mind because of me. You folks have no idea how this hurts me. To think that my editorial could break a sound mind. My, how awful I feel.
These wise souls have done me a great service-- After blasting me for being unloving, the kindly give you a link to my section on the Roman Catholic Whore Church. I will take links from any of you, my enemies. Thanks.
"Regarding “Dominion Theology: Here is another well-written article on the Apostalic-Prophetic movement, and yet another against it. This by, of all things “Blessed Quietness journal”is informative but I find it offensive because it lacks tact."
I will use tact when someone shows me that the word "tact" is found in the Greek New Testament. Also, when did Jesus use tact with the Pharisees? Answer: Once with Nicodemus. By that average, I am too tactful I think, for I have used tact a number of times when I too thought a Nicodemus was talking to me in email.
We seem to be ranked third in sites exposing the New Age. I would never have guessed anyone would place us that high.
I would say my adversaries are staying right on target. I really need more enemies to please my Lord, and I must not write to please the wicked. Thanks for reading here.
This is an amazing man. I admire anyone who can take someone as dull as myself and make such exciting reading out of their editorial. Would you please consider the amount of time Hendrie must have spent digesting my whole journal? I really appreciate someone who will spend that much time here. The length of his page on me is witness to how much I must have moved his soul to violence. The page I originally posted on him was a letter precisely three paragraphs long with a short paragraph by me. I backed up my claims with links to web sites where Hendrie was exposed. Those links were dropped, so I truncated my page seriously and really had to back away from my position on Hendrie and leave only Mr. Kwoh's letter posted.
What I like is the way Hendrie blasts me, and then after I change something, he manages to make it look like I have become even more evil because I changed it. Of course, there are the amazing number of overstatements and outright lies, for which I am grateful. These I am sure will redound to my reward in the Glory.
All around, Hendrie is a grand adversary.
READ OUR PAGE ON HENDRIE
I am sincerely regretful that I could not spend the same time on Hendrie that he spent on me. I ran our of antacids.
HERE IS A PAGE HENDRY POSTED OF MINE-- STOLE IT WITHOUT PERMISSION
He was too stupid to steal the graphics :-)
Eddy baby, "thous shalt not steal"
READ THE BOOK ONLINE SHOWING HOW HENDRIE WAS SUCKERED INTO BELIEVING THE BIGGEST FRAUD AND LIE OF MODERN TIMES-- scroll down to page 301 of the PDF file
"Steve Van Nattan prefers that I remain silent about the religious malfeasance of modern day Pharisees; I will not be silent." Edward Hendrie.
This is a lie if I ever saw one. I am only too pleased to be across the way from Satan's little soldier, Hendrie. I have him right where I want him, and I intend to keep him busy trying to destroy me (when he is not busy attacking Israel, that is).
Here is Texe Marrs, breathless with Alex Jonesian fear, preaching Edward Hendrie's false gospel. Marrs promotes Hendrie and sells his books. Birds of a feather barf together. Much of this is based in truth, but the undertone is clearly based on Jew baiting.
Mad Mullah of Calgary
Here is jihad without the bullets. This gentleman in Calgary, Canada has stolen my graphics and twisted my words over and over. He is in the order of Ahmed Deedat.
Please go to the Mad Mullah's site, and read. I marvel at the Mad Mullah's prodigious use of HTML crayons and dancing bologna. Clever fellow, even if rather perverse:
Second version-- many more crayons used:
Any thinking Muslim reading our journal must consider, please. The Mad Mullah shows that the doctrine of Jihad taught by Mohammed has not changed. Mohammed taught Muslims to lie about, as well as kill, the Kaffir, the ones from Dar ul Harb. Your religion is the most mongrel religion on earth. It is founded on hate, mindless hate, and you will answer to God one day for giving your life to the cause of hate. There is no love in Islam, only submission.
The Mad Mullah is one of the most helpful adversaries I have, for he proves how much Islam is void of morality and righteousness in the Islamic follower. His god is a beast.
It is nice to know that this cop is clear across the country from me. Any man who will lie and twist the truth like this would take bribes from meth labs and oxy pushers. This fellow proves to us, by his total disregard for the facts, that Wicca, witchcraft, and Satanism must be defended by the methods of Lucifer, the master of the dark side. We also learn that Satan is quite respected at the police station in America.
The cop claims I have associations with people I never heard of before, and he makes assumptions that are bizarre in the extreme, and then, bless his little cop heart, he accuses me of making wrong assumptions with the Satanic groups he hugs. Yawn
John MacArthur's pit bull-- Phil Johnson
This young child comes across as an aggressive defender of the truth. He has high toned blather, and he makes reference to some good solid resources. What he has given his life to is the defense of John MacArthur. He is John's little puppy, and anyone who questions MacArthur will be attacked by this pit bull. Problem: he is a toothless pit bull. Anyone familiar with the arrangement will realize that this man does not have a mind, he has a full set of John MacArthur's sermons on cassette tape.
I do not have a grip full of tapes for higher authority-- I have only a King James Bible. But, I do consider this adversary useful, for he tells me what MacArthur thinks about my web editorial, and that is helpful, for I do believe MacArthur is a clever fellow. I have not lost hope that one day he will leave his Reformed theology and Gnostic bible and come back to the narrow way.
Phhhhhilly's comment is revealing:
"Formerly "Balaam's Ass Speaks." The earlier title was more fitting. Here's sad evidence of how low "fundamentalism" can sink."
Phil refers to a previous version of this journal called "Balaam's Ass Speaks." It was our intention to be known as the donkey who speaks back to the heretic prophets, like John MacArthur who despises the Blood of Jesus and teaches the eradication of the old nature and trashes the King James Bible every Sunday morning on Roscoe Blvd.
So, Phil is mad because we dealt with his guru, which is understandable for a fellow who has no brain unless it can be found on a MacArthur preaching tape. But, his trick, "The earlier title was more fitting" is one many have used. He is isolating the "ass" part of the title of the former journal, and, having no regard for the King James English at Grace Church, Phil wants to make me an ass in the modern usage. Well, jerk Phil, I shall be an ass. I shall be worse than an ass if I can keep drawing the beasts of Satan out of the bushes as I did with you. HA HA HA
CHECK OUT THE TRENDY JERK-- He has the nerve to mock unconventional sites!!
PHIL'S BLOG-- We have seen more and more spiritual bastards hiding behind the skirts of Spurgeon.
Phil posts this sermon by Spurgeon which does not have even one full verse of Scripture quoted. This is the hallmark of Spurgeon's elocution-- it was almost totally void of Bible. In this article Spurgeon cries out against man-made theology, but he himself uses no higher authority than himself. This is the apologetic method of Phil Johnson-- it is all about Phil. MacArthur, Phil's mentor and guru, does only slightly better. MacArthur spends much time laboring over the minutia of Greek nuances and extrapolations, and when he quotes the Bible he uses a Gnostic based English Bible every time.
Good old Phil is trying to add more substance to his claims that I am guilty of "over the top sarcasm." Thanks Phil. I wish you would add more comments. If you lack creativity, simply check in with brother MacArthur. He may help you be more rational thoughts.
You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make him drink,
You can lead a man to knowledge, but you cannot make him think.
Do not give up Phil. You may get into the real war some day.
An exceptional discussion is found at the site of Dan R. Smedra. Dan is a Grace Movement believer. This is not a cult as such, but they do disservice to the whole counsel of God by rating the Bible in relation to Paul and the alleged private "mysteries" which God revealed through Paul. Nowhere did Paul exalt his revelations in the manner the Grace Movement does. But, Phil Johnson, the pit bull of John MacArthur, obediently thrashes Dan for his doctrinal differences and throws him in with some of the most grievous heretics in Christendom.
Dan did a page on Phil Johnson, very detailed and reports on Phil's heritage, and you will benefit by this study. It shows how those who attack fellow believers who are on the front lines with the attacker do not give a damn how they wound the soldier beside them. Peter S. Ruckman called this "short rounds." The modern military term is "collateral damage." It is wicked under any name. READ DAN SMEDRA'S REPORT ON PHIL JOHNSON
I like it when John MacArthur piously bewails the way some people use ad hominem attacks on other men instead of just dealing with their false teachings. John does this while sending his pit bull Phil Johnson to do the ad hominem work for him. In the political world, every tyrant in history has a front man for him to do this. That it is found in the Lord's Church is vile. But, due to his large pulpit, no one dares question Pope MacArthur.
This fellow reveals how dedicated a "Hyles man" is to the ghost of the sex pervert guru. This web site parallels my site in almost every discussion of every issue, but because I have dared to expose the perversions of Jack Hyles, this guy has me in the heretic list and uses a spiritual deviant to attack me. This shows me that Hyles people have the same Jihad mentality that is found in Mecca. No moral restraint is felt in the soul of a Hyles clone when it is time to attack someone from Dar ul narrow way.
It is amazing that this child sends the reader to Edward Hendrie's site as authoritative on me. This illustrates how Hyles people will go to the devil himself if they can find in him an ally in the battle against those who expose Hyles.
Apologetics it ain't. True apologetics keeps its web site up to date. Rational apologetics considers a teaching before trashing it. This Apologetics, I gather, hates anyone who takes a narrow stand on anything where Apologetics does not take a stand, like on the authority and preservation of the Word of God.
READ THEIR RAGE BECAUSE I DEFEND THE KING JAMES BIBLE (which they trash)
READ THEIR PAGE JUST FOR ME (Reminds me of the line, "And Geshmu the Arab says it is true...."
The Worshipful Master
Me thinketh he protesteth too much....... The god of Freemasonry is the balls of the Freemason. Albert Pike stated that very clearly in "Morals and Dogma", a manual of beliefs of all of he degrees of Freemasonry. Go here to read more.
So, this man does the only thing he can do-- attack my person. He cannot defend the religion of Freemasonry, for he would have to defend phallus worship. That is not in fashion yet, though I would anticipate that the doctrine of the god of genitalia will be in full flush in the Great Tribulation.
LESSONS I HAVE LEARNED FROM MY ENEMIES
What shall we do with such adversaries? First, I hate them. I do not hate them emotionally. They are less than the fine dust in the balance to me. I hate them because I want to respond to them as God does:
Psalms 139:17 How precious also are thy thoughts unto me, O God! how great is the sum of them!
18 If I should count them, they are more in number than the sand: when I awake, I am still with thee.
19 Surely thou wilt slay the wicked, O God: depart from me therefore, ye bloody men.
20 For they speak against thee wickedly, and thine enemies take thy name in vain.
21 Do not I hate them, O LORD, that hate thee? and am not I grieved with those that rise up against thee?
22 I hate them with perfect hatred: I count them mine enemies.
23 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts:
24 And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
When God searches my heart today, tomorrow, the day I die, and at the Great White Throne judgment, I deeply desire that he should find hate-- hate for those who claim the name of God and Jesus Christ and then thrash his Word and blaspheme his name. I do not love these men, and I would rejoice to see the day of their death so that the lambs of my Lord will no longer be subjected to their Judas teachings.
As to myself, I work on my feelings regularly so that I will not be guilty of hate of my OWN enemies. For my sake, I love them, for God's sake I hate them. How is this possible? It is the same thing that we find in God, for he loves all men and wants them redeemed in Christ, and he hates the wicked.
Psalms 7:11 God judgeth the righteous, and God is angry with the wicked every day.
Malachi 1:2 (KJV) I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,
3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
So, if any of my adversaries visit here, I put you on notice: I have no personal malice toward you, and I would love to see you come under the full authority of the Lord Jesus Christ and be my brother in Christ for eternity. In the meantime, I hate you for every way in which you teach and promote violence against the truth.
For the record, the nasty things you say about me are very helpful. I review them from time to time to see if any of your bombast and bull is based in the truth, and then I go and change articles in the journal accordingly. No one is better at finding a bug under the chip than one's dedicated enemies. Most of your editorial comes under the category of an American football term (also applies to rugby) called "dodge and weave." I just slip around you and keep running for the goal line.
Psalms 27:3 (KJV) Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4 One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.
6 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.
We are much too strong in KJV defense for some-
I say, "When you throw a rock at a bunch of dogs, it ain't no fun unless you hear one of the yelp."
This young child seeks help understanding us-
Why don't some of you readers send him mail and see if you can give him light?
This clone of the Pope makes me a Reformation Protestant
Please don't tell John Calvin, it would ruin his day.
BUT, we have friends who do take us seriously.
This one is startling. I never expected anyone to deal with this topic.
