The following letter-form was brought about as a means of teaching my children the Word of God through the mail. And of course, quite naturally so, that’s the reason I begin these letters with "Dear Children" and end them with "Love Dad". So for the rest of you who participate in these weekly messages, please keep their original intended purpose in mind.

What better way to start off today’s sermonet than a picture-perfect “poster”:
So that’s the introduction to our message for today… which just so happens to be entitled “Jan (finalcall07) And Andy (warningthepeople): Heretics Of God’s Holy Word!” And the following is the real-life story of how it all came about.
You see it was only several weeks ago that this nightmare of “Jan and Andy” was forced upon me. In other words, I didn’t go looking for it; it came looking for me!
But anyway, it all started after I watched a YouTube video that someone had sent me. I don’t even remember what the video was about, but I do remember the “related video” posted off to the right that caught my eye. The title of the video was “The Blood Of Jesus Does Not Cover Willful Sin”. “Jan Boshoff” of “finalcall07” posted the video, and this was what he had to say:
Jesus Christ, the Son of God, through Whom and to Whom and by Whom all things were created, took the form of a man, flesh and blood, like we are and He came to this earth. He lived a normal human life like we do and He proved that flesh and blood CAN OBEY God; flesh and blood can live without doing sin. Further Jesus also atoned for the sins of the whole world by His blood, on the cross. He took the pain, He took the punishment so that all who REPENT and accept Him as Lord and Master and OBEY Him, SIN NO MORE, so that they can have eternal life. But IF WE GO ON SINNING after coming to the knowledge of the truth WE WILL PERISH. THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST DOES NOT COVER WILLFUL SIN.
We read in Hebrews 10:26-31 "For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27but a certain terrifying expectation of judgment, and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES. 28Anyone who has set aside the Law of Moses dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29How much severer punishment do you think he will deserve who has trampled under foot the Son of God, and has regarded as unclean the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified, and has insulted the Spirit of grace? 30For we know Him who said, "VENGEANCE IS MINE, I WILL REPAY." And again, "THE LORD WILL JUDGE HIS PEOPLE." 31It is a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God."
If we go on sinning then it will be a terrifying thing to fall into the hands of the living God because He does not excuse willful sin. Jesus said: "SIN NO MORE." He forgives our past sin IF we TRULY REPENT and we OBEY Him with all our heart but if we go back to sin then we have a terrifying expectation of the wrath of God. The WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH. IF WE GO ON SINNING WE WILL PERISH IN ETERNAL DAMNATION.
May Jesus bless you.
Now was that some more powerful preaching or what? I mean Jan Boshoff put the bust on the “once saved, always saved” doctrine in record-breaking time with his three (3) minute and forty-three (43) second video. I was impressed to say the least! In fact I was so impressed that I continued to watch more of his videos. And what I found was the same Holy Spirit inspired preaching in all of them.
However, along with the good came the bad. Because the Holy Spirit brought to my attention that Jan Boshoff quoted from a “Bible” in his “finalcall07” videos that was not the “Authorized King James Version”. But then came the day when I discovered the real truth after having been directed to watched his video “Why The Bible Is Not The Word Of God”. And the following is what Jan Boshoff had to say in that video:
The scriptures that are contained in, what is commonly known as the Bible are all, the writings of men. They were written by men, not by angels or aliens or even God Himself. They were the writings of men. Some of those men received revelation from God, God spoke to some of them, some of them prophets, others were given revelation by the Holy Spirit, but still IT IS THE WRITINGS OF MEN, flesh and blood.
The gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were written by four different authors. Luke investigated what had happened in that time that Jesus walked the earth and from what he determined, from his studies, he wrote up his own account, and that is the book of Luke. Luke never walked with Jesus. The apostles themselves also wrote, Paul who wrote the most, Peter, John, but those words that they wrote were their own. They were epistle (letters) written to the believers like I would give you a message that I received from the Lord, which might contain words that the Lord gave me but also my own words. Its not the word of God. THE BIBLE CANNOT BE THE WORD OF GOD. There are messages that might be from God, but that is why God sent us the Holy Spirit, the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, to guide us into all truth, to confirm to us WHICH OF THOSE WORDS written by men and spoken by men WERE REALLY FROM GOD. Because not all those words were from God. Everything that Paul wrote and said is not the gospel, they are his own words. The gospel of Jesus Christ was preached by Himself but it was recorded by men and men are fallible! Men make mistakes in their recordings. Men make mistakes in their translations and THERE ARE DELIBERATE MISTAKES MADE IN INTERPRETATIONS made by men, because they do things according to their own liking.
So dear friends, this (Bible) is not the Word of God. This is a book, it is just the scriptures and it contains the truth also but it needs to be verified by the Holy Spirit. We must trust in Jesus and be led by the Holy Spirit, that is why Jesus sent the Holy Spirit. Man will not live from bread alone but from every word that proceeds from THE MOUTH OF GOD, whatever God speaks. All of this (Bible) was not spoken by God, it was spoken by men. The words that God spoke will happen the way God spoke them, but all that is written here (Bible) is not the word of God, its the words of men, that have recorded, some words of God sometimes. Our focus and our trust must be in Jesus, WE MUST BE LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD. He gives His Holy Spirit to every man who accepts Him as MASTER and He guides them by His Spirit, NOT BY A BOOK! NEITHER BY OTHER PEOPLE.
Dear friend, YOU NEED TO HEAR FROM JESUS HIMSELF, His sheep LISTEN TO HIS VOICE and they follow Him. HIS VOICE IS THE HOLY SPIRIT. Have you received the Holy Spirit, and do you LISTEN to the Holy Spirit? Because, if you do not have the Spirit of Christ and you do not listen, YOU ARE NOT HIS SHEEP, YOU DON'T BELONG TO HIM!
You need to pray, get on your knees and pray, ASK HIM to give you the Holy Spirit and guide you by His Spirit.
May Jesus bless you.
Unbelievable… to say the least! Jan Boshoff; what a heretic!!! I could hardly believe what I was hearing! How in the round world could such demonically inspired lies come out of the mouth of the man who had spoken such Holy Spirit inspired Truth? I had to know! So as directed by the Holy Spirit (He told me to do it), I fired off the following email to Jan Boshoff and his wife:
My Brother and Sister in Christ,
Since my last correspondence it has become necessary that I write you again. And this is what I must say.
I believe the first video I watched of yours was "The Blood Of Jesus Does Not Cover Willful Sin". What an awesome teaching! Short and concise, but yet a powerful Word that brings the "Once Saved, Always Saved" doctrine to it's knees.
From that first Youtube I continued to watch more of your videos with great enthusiasm. I had finally found someone who preaches the uncompromised Gospel of Jesus Christ through the Power of the Holy Spirit! And then came your "Hebrew Language, Name And Commandment" video. What a treat! Short and concise, but yet a powerful adversary to the Hebrew Roots Movement that's invading the Church and destroying the faith of many. However, when we posted a link to this video on Facebook we received the following comment that we had certainly not expected:
"Eric Veritas Blair - This guy is a false prophet. He has videos that tell people not to read their bibles it is not the word of God and that only Jesus is the Word of God."
Now the minute I read that comment my blood ran cold. Was it possible that this man was speaking a horrible truth about you?
Well, I immediately did a search and found your video "Why The Bible Is NOT The Word Of God". And what you had to say in that video confirmed my suspicion to a depth that I could have never imagined.
You see it didn't take me long to discover, as I followed through the Scripture readings in your videos, that you were not reading from a Bible that presented God's Truth... but one of Satan's counterfeits that promoted his lies. The closest thing I could find in the bible perversions that followed your quoted text was the New American Standard Bible (NASB) [correction made]... and what a perverted word it is!!!
So, you are accurate in what you say about the bible you read - it's not the Word of God!
However, there is one - the King James Authorized Version - which was translated from the manuscripts that are the uncompromised, seven times pure, Word of God. But the question remains as to how such a Holy Spirit directed man of God could be so deluded in his understanding of God's written Word?
Can you, will you please tell me how you were brainwashed into believing what you believe concerning God's written Word?
If you are reading from the NASB, here are two links that might help you:
Now I was dead serious about this thing about Jan Boshoff being “brainwashed”! But then again, he would have to be “brain dead” in order for him to not hear the Holy Spirit correcting him on his unbelievable heresy against the uncompromised, seven times pure written Word of God contained in the Authorized King James Version of the Holy Bible. I mean the only other reason I can see for him doing such an unbelievable thing is if he’s dead set on becoming “the authority” on God’s Word instead of the Holy Bible.
But anyway, with the preceding email in mind, the following is how he responded to me:
I am Afrikaans. That is my first language and I read the Afrikaans Bible. The KJV was perverted by the infamous King James and it is copyrighted as well. It is not the "Word of God." Jesus Christ is the Word of God and the words that He spoke were recorded in the gospels and still stand in most perverted Bibles because it is universally agreed that those words are impracticable. That is where they make the mistake. The words of Jesus as recorded in the gospels ARE the words of eternal life.
The KJV English is archaic and most KJV believers just quote the words without knowing what they are saying, neither do they OBEY the words of Jesus and that is why they are LOST. That is why America and the world look like they do. They do not have Jesus.
It was not KJV or any other Bible that told me to sell all my possessions and leave my birth country behind and go to a wicked USA that persecuted me from the day that I arrived there to warn them to repent.
How have you become my enemy because I am not a KJV follower but a disciple of Jesus?
First you say:
"Your testimonies and Words of instruction are truly an incredible service to the work of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I only wish that I could have been introduced to you before your departure from the USA, but God has His reasons for not allowing it."
Now you say:
"Can you, will you please tell me how you were brainwashed into believing what you believe concerning God's written Word?"
Are we not of the same Spirit?
Did you ask Jesus about me? Are you led by Jesus, His Spirit or do you follow KJV?
May Jesus bless you dear friend.
Wow!!! What an email! Jan Boshoff is a VERY confused individual… and his confusion is definitely not of the Holy Spirit! So in order to answer his all-encompassing question – “Are we not of the same Spirit?” – I sought the Holy Spirit. And the following was how He had me to reply:
My dear Brother,
Let me take your response one bite at the time. First of all, the Lord Jesus Christ has been speaking to me through His Holy Spirit for some time about the subject of God’s “Written Word” and His “Living Word”. And what you speak on this subject is not of His Spirit. You said the King James Bible was copyrighted. But yet the original King James Authorized Bible was not. You are wrong.
And then there’s this thing about your misunderstanding about King James’ association with this Bible.
When King James gave his seal to the order to have the Bible translated, it was just the permission on the authority to go ahead with it. It wasn’t King James’ Bible. And for some 200 years his name was not connected with it. He didn’t want his name connected with it. And long, long after he had gone from this scene, in some sly, clever way, the "King James" was attached to it. You see that’s attaching God’s Word to a man, or a man to God’s Word. And it shouldn’t be. It really shouldn’t be. It’s the Authorized Version.
I hope you can take the time to prayerfully listen to the following audio:
Also, the three videos at the bottom of the following Web page will help you see the Signature of God in the Mesoretic Text and Texus Receptus Text that were used in the translation of the King James Authorized Bible:
In closing, would you please answer my question as to what English Bible version you use in the making of your YouTube videos? And while you’re at it, please tell me which Afrikaans Bible you use. There are several different versions, and they are not all the same.
Now that was the beginning of my Holy Spirit directed efforts to teach “Brother?” Jan Boshoff the Truth about the “Written Word” of God… but that was as far as we got! Because, you see, he never bothered to answer my question concerning which English and Afrikaans version of the Bible he uses. In fact he didn’t even respond at all! So seeing how Jan Boshoff didn’t want to be corrected, we’re having to write this sermonet to expose him for what he really is – “A HERETIC”!
And with all that in mind, let’s continue on with the job at hand by taking a closer look at a portion of what Jan Boshoff had to say in his email to me:
“Jesus Christ is the Word of God and the words that He spoke were recorded in the gospels and still stand in most perverted Bibles because it is universally agreed that those words are impracticable. That is where they make the mistake. The words of Jesus as recorded in the gospels ARE the words of eternal life.”
So according to Jan Boshoff, the only Words in the Holy Bible that can be considered the “Words of God” are those found in the four gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) that were spoken directly by “Jesus Christ” (the “Word Of God”). And seeing how Jan Boshoff considers those “Words of Jesus” documented in the four gospels to be “the Words of eternal life”, it only stands to reason that he would want to use the Authorized King James Version instead of his “perverted bible” in order to keep the life-giving Words of Jesus in place… just as Jesus spoke them.
You see the bible perversion that Jan Boshoff reads from on his YouTube videos not only “omits” some of the Words of Jesus but also “changes” some of the Words of Jesus and even brings “doubt” to the reader concerning some of the Words of Jesus through the addition of “questioning” foot notes. In fact the following is a very small sample of what can be found in our documentary “Satan’s Attack Against The King James Version (AV1611)”:
Note: Words highlighted in yellow denote the “Words of Jesus” omitted, altered, or questioned [in brackets] in the “bible perversions”.
King James Version:
“For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.”
New American Standard Bible:
[[a]For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.]
a. Matthew 18:11 - Early mss do not contain this verse.
King James Version:
“The servant therefore fell down, and worshipped him, saying, Lord, have patience with me, and I will pay thee all.”
New American Standard Bible:
“So the slave fell to the ground and prostrated himself before him, saying, ‘Have patience with me and I will repay you everything.’”
King James Version:
“And Jesus answered him, saying, It is written, That man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God.”
New American Standard Bible:
“And Jesus answered him, “It is written, ‘MAN SHALL NOT LIVE ON BREAD ALONE.’””
King James Version:
“But he turned, and rebuked them, and said, Ye know not what manner of spirit ye are of. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them. And they went to another village.”
New American Standard Bible:
“But He turned and rebuked them, [[a]and said, “You do not know what kind of spirit you are of; for the Son of Man did not come to destroy men’s lives, but to save them.”] And they went on to another village.”
a. Luke 9:55 - Early mss do not contain bracketed portion
King James Version:
“A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.”
New American Standard Bible:
“A little while, and you will no longer see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me.”
What a bust! So much for the “preserved” Words of Jesus in Jan Boshoff’s “perverted” bibles. And God doesn’t take it lightly either! In fact this is what He has to say about those who mess with His uncompromised, seven times pure, Word of God as found in the Authorized King James Bible:
“And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.” (Revelation 22:19 KJV)
God says, “Woe unto the man that perverts God’s Word!” In fact there was a man by the name of Frank Logsdon, who played a critical part in the publication of the New American Standard Bible before finally realizing the serious sin that he had committed. It was then that he repented of his devilish deed and made restitution by warning the public of the “Satanic deception” working within the pages of these “new and improved” bibles:
- Frank Logsdon Repents -
"I must under God denounce every attachment to the New American Standard Version. I'm afraid I'm in trouble with the Lord...We laid the groundwork; I wrote the format; I helped interview some of the translators; I sat with the translator; I wrote the preface. When you see the preface to the New American Standard, those are my words...it's wrong, it's terribly wrong; it's frightfully wrong...I'm in trouble;...I can no longer ignore these criticisms I am hearing and I can't refute them. The deletions are absolutely frightening...there are so many. The finest leaders that we have today haven't gone into it [new versions of Wescott and Hort's corrupted Greek text] just as I hadn't gone into it...that's how easily one can be deceived...Are we so naive that we do not suspect Satanic deception in all of this?" ~ Frank Logsdon
Frank Logsdon understood that the Authorized King James Version was translated from manuscripts that are the uncompromised, seven times pure, Word of God… and he spoke it!
But moving right along, let’s check out more of Mr. Boshoff’s blasphemies against God’s “Written Word” in his YouTube video entitled “Bible Witchcraft: How It Works”:
Witchcraft is what the devil does, lies, deception, trickery, fakery, making you believe the wrong thing and then you do the wrong thing. That is how he destroys you. He uses the truth and he applies it in such a way that it will destroy you. That is also what he did when he tempted Jesus in the desert. He said to Him:"It is written..." and he took the truth that was written in the scriptures, but he used it to try and destroy Jesus. That is witchcraft. And that is what people do today, what churches do. They use the Bible to their own advantage. They can prove anything from the Bible.
If you can make people believe in your Book (Bible), then you have got them! Because then you can just quote them some verse in scripture to manipulate them and make them do what you want them to do. That is how churches "prove" to people:"You must come to church!" They quote them verse and chapter. "You must pay 10% to the church!" They quote them scripture! "You must submit to the leadership of the church!" and they quote them a scripture. All for their own advantage! Dear friends, that is witchcraft. They are using this book (Bible) to manipulate you BUT THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH YOUR ETERNAL SALVATION! They are lying to you. It is fakery, witchcraft.
The truth is written in this book, the testimony of people who saw Jesus, who listened to Him talk, that is recorded in the gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. It is their testimony. What you do with the testimony, that will determine where you end up when you die. You need to know Jesus Christ to have eternal life and that is what this book (Bible) tells you. But, this book (Bible) cannot save you. The words of Jesus that He spoke and that are recorded in the gospels Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, those are the words of life that can save you IF you OBEY them. If you obey the words of Jesus, then you will have salvation, and Jesus said:"Follow Me!" He is the living God, He is alive, and if you go on your knees and you cry out to Him, Jesus, the invisible, the unseen, the almighty God, HE WILL REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOU as real. God is spirit and He will speak to you in such a way that you know He is real, but if you seek Him in a book you won't find Him, dear friend. This book (Bible) only talks about Him.
That is how the devil manipulates people and he side tracks them, he gets their attention OFF JESUS who can give them eternal life and he keeps them busy with a book (Bible), and churches use the book to get a hold on YOU and YOUR MONEY, and that is how satan diverts you. You are busy with church and you are busy with Bible study, but YOU DON'T KNOW JESUS, YOU HAVE NO RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM! And then, when you die, He will say to you:"I don't know you, go away from Me you, who work wickedness!" because you NEVER KNEW JESUS! You were tricked with witchcraft! You were deceived, you kept yourself busy with a book, you kept yourself busy with the church and you thought you were doing good but the devil deceived. People deceived you.
Dear friend, you must get to know Jesus. Do not be deceived. You must get to know Jesus OF the Bible, He is real, He is alive, He is God Almighty! The only way that you can know Him is through revelation, when He reveals Himself to you as He promised. He said:"He who has My words and keeps them , he it is who loves Me and Me and My Father will come and live with him and I WILL REVEAL MYSELF TO HIM" That is written in John 14: 21,24. The apostle John wrote it down. Dear friend, you must get to know Jesus. Do NOT BE DECEIVED by witchcraft of the devil and churches, people. Get to know Jesus for yourself and follow Him.
May Jesus bless you.
Now there’s no doubt about it that the Devil loves to take God’s “Word” and use it in such a way as to get the Christian to sin against God. In fact the first time Satan used this trick was on the woman “Eve” in the Garden of Eden… and it worked!
“Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden? And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die. And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:1-5 KJV)
Satan is truly a “spin doctor” when it comes to God’s Word. He takes God’s “Truth” and spins it into a lie. And of course the following was God’s “Truth” before he (Satan) put the spin on it:
“And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” (Genesis 2:16-17 KJV)
Now as you will notice, the LORD God “commanded” Adam with a “Word” (Truth) that would have saved his everlasting life if he had only obeyed it. And the “LORD God” who spoke this life-saving Word to Adam was none other than the Second Person of the Godhead in Heaven – the “Word” – before He became Jesus the Flesh and Blood “Word” on earth (see “Yahweh – Three In One” for more on this subject):
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men… And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” (John 1:1-4, 14 KJV)
So with all that in mind, let’s get back to Mr. Boshoff’s comments on how Satan tried to work “Bible witchcraft” on Jesus during His temptation in the wilderness:
He (Satan) said to Him:"It is written..." and he took the truth that was written in the scriptures, but he used it to try and destroy Jesus.
Now even though Satan only said “It is written” one (1) time out of the three (3) as he tempted Jesus in the wilderness, we will use the Scriptures dealing with all three (3) to prove a point. And starting out with the first we have the following:
“Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred. And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:1-4 KJV)
You see in the first temptation it was Jesus who said “It is written” before quoting the “Word Of God” that He (the “Word”) had personally spoken to Moses many years before. And of course Jesus said “it is written” because these same “Words” that He had spoken to Moses were faithfully recorded in the Hebrew scrolls from which the Masoretic Text was composed by which the Old Testament translation of the Authorized King James Bible was made. And the following are those faithfully recorded words that “were written” in God’s Holy Bible that Mr. Boshoff so adamantly blasphemes:
“All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the LORD sware unto your fathers. And thou shalt remember all the way which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the LORD doth man live.” (Deuteronomy 8:1-3 KJV)
It is written! Now ain’t that a bust, Mr. Boshoff? Without the “Written Word”, Jesus the “Word” would not have been able to rebuke Satan with the “Word Of God” that He spoke so many years before. And moving on to the second temptation of Jesus in the wilderness we find the following:
“Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone. Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.” (Matthew 4:5-7 KJV)
Now the preceding Scripture is that to which Mr. Boshoff was referring when he said that Satan “took the truth that was written in the scriptures, but he used it to try and destroy Jesus.” Mr. Boshoff was absolutely correct in what he said. And the following Scripture is that which Satan was speaking of when he said, “it is written”:
“For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.” (Psalms 91:11-12 KJV)
So the preceding “Word Of God” was that which the “Word” had personally spoken to David so many years before. It was God’s “Truth”, but it certainly did not apply as Satan was trying to use it. However the following “Word Of God” that the “Word” had spoken to Moses so many years before did apply. And it’s only because these “Words” had been faithfully recorded on Hebrew scrolls that Jesus was able to say, “It is written”:
“Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God, as ye tempted him in Massah.” (Deuteronomy 6:16 KJV)
And moving right along, let’s now take a look at the third temptation of Jesus in the wilderness:
“Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” (Matthew 4:8-10 KJV)
Now this one was a doozy. Satan actually tempted Jesus to worship him as God. And just like the two (2) times before, Jesus said, “It is written” before using the “Word Of God” that He had spoken to Moses who faithfully recorded it on Hebrew scrolls from which the Masoretic Text was composed by which the book of Deuteronomy was translated in the Authorized King James Bible:
“Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name.” (Deuteronomy 6:13 KJV)
So with all that in mind, I have a question for Mr. Boshoff:
What would Jesus have done in His defense against the attacks of Satan, Mr. Boshoff, if He had not had His “Written Word”? Just how important is this “Word Of God” that was spoken by the “Word” and faithfully recorded by men and now reproduced in the Old Testament of the Authorized King James Bible that you so adamantly blaspheme, Mr. Boshoff? I mean, after all, Mr. Boshoff, Jesus the “Word” referred back to His “Written Word” in the Old Testament no less than twenty (20) times in the four gospels of the New Testament when He said “It is written”… and one (1) time when He asked “Is it not written?”
Well, the truth of the matter is that Jesus the “Word Made Flesh” (AKA the “Last Adam”) had to live out His entire life in perfect obedience to His Father in Heaven in order to become the “Spotless Lamb” that would take away the “sin of the world” through His sacrificial death 0n the cross. The “first Adam” failed God through his disobedience, but the “Last Adam” accomplished the task. And the way that Jesus did it was by feeding on the “Rhema” Word from the Father:
“But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word (G4487) that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matthew 4:1-4 KJV)
Word (G4487) [rhema] – from reo, to speak. A word spoken or uttered; a speech or sentence consisting of several words; a word, command; denoting the operative or all powerful word or command of God; a report, account. Rhema stands for the subject matter of the word, the thing which is spoken about. (The Complete New Testament Word Study With Greek Parallel)
The “Rhema” Words of God are His instructions for our lives that will give us His promised “life” if and only if we obey them:
“It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words (G4487) that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” (John 6:63 KJV)
And, of course, it was the “Rhema” Word of God to Adam – “But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die” – that was spoken to Adam through the “Word” in Heaven, that condemned Adam to “die” after he disobeyed it:
“Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me. And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me. I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness. And if any man hear my words (G4487), and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world. He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words (G4487), hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.” (John 12:44-50 KJV)
The “Rhema” Word of God is “the operative or all powerful word or command of God” that brings “life” to the Believer when obeyed. This “Rhema” Word can either be chosen by God from His Word recorded in the Old or New Testament of the Holy Bible (Authorized King James Bible), or one that He speaks directly to the Believer through the resurrected Jesus in Heaven (the “Word”).
And with all that in mind, let’s refresh our memory on what Mr. Boshoff had to say about this matter:
If you obey the words of Jesus, then you will have salvation, and Jesus said:"Follow Me!" He is the living God, He is alive, and if you go on your knees and you cry out to Him, Jesus, the invisible, the unseen, the almighty God, HE WILL REVEAL HIMSELF TO YOU as real. God is spirit and He will speak to you in such a way that you know He is real, but if you seek Him in a book you won't find Him, dear friend. This book (Bible) only talks about Him.
Amazing, wouldn’t you say? And of course that’s the reason we’ve labeled Mr. Boshoff a “heretic of God’s Holy Word”! I mean, thank God he wasn’t around during Jesus’ temptation in the wilderness! Mr. Boshoff would have certainly been “the Devil’s advocate” by trying to convince Jesus that the “Written Word” had no power over Satan. Thank God he wasn’t there to dispute Jesus when He said, “It is written!”
So, it should be abundantly obvious by now that Mr. Boshoff is a very dangerous influence on all those who believe in what he says about the Holy Bible (Authorized King James Bible). And seeing how there are two faces on that “wanted poster” at the beginning of this message, it’s now time to deal with Mr. Boshoff’s “partner in crime”.
You see the way I found Mr. Boshoff’s partner, Andy, was much the same way in which I found Mr. Boshoff (Jan). It seemed as though every time I watched one of Jan’s “finalcall07” videos I would see quite a few of Andy’s “warningthepeople” videos in the “related video” section off to the side. So as the Lord would have it, I watched a few of Andy’s videos too. And this is what I found:
In his YouTube video “Jan Boshoff finalcall07 Obeys Jesus: My Testimony”, Andy gives his testimony of how he discovered the teachings of Jan shortly after having been delivered from the “dead religion” of his past and coming into a “personal relationship” with Jesus. As Andy tells it in the video, he bonded with Jan instantly… and the rest of the story is what has made him a “heretic of God’s Holy Word” too.
Andy is a “chip off the old block” when it comes to the influence he’s obtained through the teachings of his “Papa Jan”. The only difference between the two is that Andy is much more “crafty” when he presents Satan’s lies as God’s Truth.
Take for instance Andy’s video “Satan’s Lie: Bible Is The Word Of God”. He does a very nice job of convincing the viewer that the title “Word of God” can only apply to Jesus… and not the Holy Bible!
And then there’s the video “Should You Read The Bible?” in which Andy “craftily” demeans the Holy Bible without directly speaking out against it.
In fact it was only through my posted comment – “Which Bible version do you use in your Bible studies?” – that I was able to discern the “lie” in what he was presenting. Because this was how Andy responded to my question:
“Friend, people swear upon the KJV but they do not know Jesus. It is not important which version we prefer but rather that we are led by the Holy Spirit of God. Only Jesus saves, not Bible study. “
What a bust! The truth came out, and the following is what the Lord had me to reply:
“You are a heretic in the truest sense of the word. A wolf in sheep’s clothing working the deceptions of your father the Devil. Rat poison is only 1% arsenic – the rest is good wholesome food. Your lie demeaning the Infallible Word Of God, as contained in the King James Authorized Bible, is the arsenic in your teachings. Christians beware!”
So, there you have it: the ugly truth of the “gruesome twosome”. And the following Scripture explains why the Holy Spirit had me to call them “slow bellies” in that “wanted poster” at the beginning of this message:
“Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.” (Romans 16:17-18 KJV)
Jan and Andy – disciples of Satan, doing their best to destroy the “Written Word Of God”. And as the following two pages from “Sabotage” point out, it’s been going on for a very long time:
Only the Lord knows the rivers of blood that have been shed by devoted men of God in order to keep His uncompromised, seven times pure, “Written Word” from being lost during the ages. But yet “Jan and Andy” say that the Holy Bible (Authorized King James Bible) is not the “Word of God”!
Well, there are volumes of information we could present in order to prove the “gruesome twosome” are wrong in what they say. However, we’re only going to make note of a book that accomplishes the task very well: “The Signature Of God” by Grant R. Jeffrey. This book examines the overwhelming scientific evidence that proves the inspiration and authenticity of the Bible as the Word of God, and thereby establishes the credibility and authority of the Scriptures for both non-believers and Christians. The book is divided into sections that explore the following areas:
1. Fascinating ancient inscriptions and manuscripts that prove the historical accuracy of the Scriptures.
2. Little known archeological discoveries that provide overwhelming confirmation of the biblical accounts, including the Tower of Babel and the Exodus.
3. The tremendously accurate scientific statements in the Bible that cannot be explained apart from God's inspiration.
4. The incredible fulfillment of prophecies in our generation that authenticate the Scriptures.
5. The staggering phenomenon of hidden codes and mathematical patterns found in the text of the Bible that could not have been produced by human intelligence.
6. Scriptural "coincidences" that confirm the divine inspiration of the Scriptures.
7. The phenomenon of the transformed character and lives of the writers of the Bible.
8. The unprecedented influence of the Bible on the lives of individuals, the culture, and history of the Western world.
So that’s an overview of what can be found in “The Signature Of God”. And the following excerpt from the book will give you a few more of the details on God’s authenticating “Signature” in His Holy Word:
The Inspiration of Scripture
The early Christians, Jewish scribes, and generations of Christian believers shared an unshakable conviction that the Scriptures contain the infallible, inspired, and authoritative words of God. The Bible itself claims that "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness" (2 Timothy 3:16). The Greek word translated "inspired" literally means "God breathed" indicating the Lord's direct supervision of the writing by the biblical writer. The Bible claims that its words were not written by men in an ordinary manner but that God actually inspired men to record His direct words as His revelation to mankind for all time. Just as God created only one sun to provide light to our planet, He gave us only one book, the Bible, to enlighten our world spiritually.
Tragically, during this century many pastors, professors, and laymen have lost their faith and confidence that the Bible is truly the inspired and reliable Word of God. Dr. Kennedy, a Regius Professor of Classics at Cambridge University in the early decades of this century, warned of the relentless battle that was about to begin over the authority of the Bible. "The inspiration of Scriptures will be the last battle ground between the Church and the world." Unfortunately, many in our churches and seminaries today have abandoned this battlefield too easily and accepted defeat at the hands of sceptics that hate the authority of the Word of God. This widespread rejection of the truthfulness of the Scriptures reveals the folly of men who "have forsaken me the fountain of living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns" of vain philosophy (see Jeremiah 2:13). Jeremiah the prophet spoke these words twenty-five centuries ago.
The Bible itself declares in numerous passages that it is the inspired Word of God. The prophet Jeremiah declared, "Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me: 'Behold, I have put My words in your mouth'" (Jeremiah 1:9). God confirmed that He directly inspired His servants, the prophets, to record His words and instructions "word for word." In the New Testament the apostle Peter declared that "Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation, for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit" (2 Peter 1:20,21). One of the strongest statements found in the Bible records the inspired words of Jesus Himself who declared, "The Scripture cannot be broken" (John 10:35).
The Bible Contains the Characteristics of a Genuine Revelation from God
How would God authenticate His message so that naturally skeptical men and women could be assured that the Scriptures were truly from God and not simply the speculations of religious philosophers? How would the Lord identify His presence, His divine nature and His commands to mankind and provide proof that this communication was truly from God?
1. The written revelation of God's nature and commands was progressively revealed step-by-step to a series of carefully chosen men over a period of sixteen centuries. The recipients were closely connected by race and faith to facilitate their gathering, assembling, preserving, and distributing God's written revelation throughout this time. The Lord chose the Jewish people, a small defined race that has maintained its identity over the centuries, as the faithful guardian of His written revelations.
2. Although His divine communications were transmitted by inspiration to individual Jews, it was recorded in a permanent written form capable of being examined and read by the writer's contemporaries as well as generations to follow.
3. These divine communications were sometimes accompanied by supernatural miracles to prove its origin from God.
4. This revelation contains internal evidence that proves that God is the ultimate author. The Bible includes information that could not have been written by men without divine inspiration.
5. The Bible contains thousands of detailed prophecies concerning events that were precisely fulfilled many years after the predictions were made. Their fulfillment proves that God inspired the Bible. No one but God can prophesy accurately. (See “Got Faith? for the undeniable statistical proof that the Holy Bible was not of men but God.)
6. God inspired biblical writers to record His profound wisdom and truth that transcend all of man's wisdom.
7. God's Holy Spirit supernaturally transforms the lives of millions who commit themselves to the Bible's revelation.
8. The primary purpose of the Bible is to reveal God's plan of salvation. However, whenever the Scriptures deals with history, archeology, nature, or science, it reveals advanced knowledge that is true and verifiable. Such biblical statements are far in advance of the knowledge of the time of the original human writer.
9. The Bible's wisdom, knowledge, and ethics clearly proclaim its supernatural origin to anyone who is truly seeking answers to life's profound questions. The wisest people of all cultures and times are committed to its truths.
10. The Scriptures contain advanced medical and sanitation knowledge that was thousands of years ahead of its time. This medical knowledge from the Bible has saved countless millions of lives of those who followed its divine precepts over the centuries since the Bible was written. In addition, its lifesaving commands still prove their worth in this century.
11. A careful examination of the names and numbers in the Bible's text reveals special mathematical designs and codes that are so complex that no human or super-computer could have produced these features. Many of these designs are not obvious and occur throughout a series of biblical books written by different biblical authors over several centuries. There is no human explanation for this phenomenon except for divine inspiration. (See “The Number Seven – God’s Authenticator For The KJV” for the mathematical proof that the Holy Bible is God’s Word.)
12. Recently, Jewish computer scientists discovered a series of incredible messages encoded at equally spaced intervals hidden beneath the Hebrew text of the first five books of the Bible, the Torah. God inspired the writers to unknowingly use specific words and letters to produce the most astonishing and incredibly complicated mathematical and letter codes ever produced. These features were carefully hidden from the eyes of everyone until this century and the development of mathematical and super-computer analysis. The discovery of these complex patterns of wheels within wheels provides compelling evidence that constitutes an unanswerable argument for the divine inspiration of the Bible. The scientists declared that these patterns are so complex that they could not have been produced by humans. Furthermore, while these incredible patterns exist in the Hebrew text of the Torah, no other apocryphal texts display this pattern, nor can they find it in any other Hebrew religious or secular texts. This incredible phenomenon provides overwhelming evidence that there is one inspired author of the Scriptures.
13. In normal human literature, authors naturally try to present themselves in the best light possible. However, the Bible presents these men "warts and all" revealing them often as weak, afraid, and lacking in wisdom. It runs contrary to human experience to find authors revealing themselves with such candor. Additionally, biblical revelation contains many intricate details and unintended coincidences in its stories that, while easily overlooked, prove the overall truthfulness of the historical accounts.
14. Although written by forty-four men over sixteen centuries, the complete text of the Bible reveals a coherent unity and progressive revelation from Genesis to Revelation that develops God's plan of redemption for mankind. The books of the Old Testament continuously point to the coming of a Messiah-King to redeem His people. The New Testament displays the fulfillment of these divine prophecies in the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus the Messiah. The unity of theology and the focus on the message of redemption throughout the Bible argues strongly that a single author created this text. The combined evidence presented in this book reveals that the single author who inspired the writers of the Bible was God. (See “Got Faith?” for the undeniable statistical proof that the Holy Bible was not of men but God.)
Now having said all that it’s time to wrap this sermonet up. And just in case you’re interested in a much more detailed study on the “Rhema” Word of God, please check out “ You’ve Asked A Hard Thing Lord!”.
So, there you have it: the ugly truth about two of Satan’s disciples (Jan and Andy) who’re doing their dead-level best to discredit God’s Holy Word!!!
The “slow bellies” have now been marked for the whole wide world to see so that all who desire to do so can “keep on keeping the faith in Jesus!!!”
