A Voice in the
" A New 'Jesus' "
Through many years of Bible study I could never understand what Jesus
meant by His breathtaking statement, "For many shall come in my name,
saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many." (Matthew 24:5). Since I
have watched this Scripture being fulfilled by much of the modern
religious world, it is now seems clear to me. Jesus was prophesying
that false prophets and false religious movements would use His name,
preach with His name, and even confess faith in His name, but would be
serving a different Jesus. I believe He was suggesting that the
ultimate deception would be by men and women that actually say, "Jesus
is the Christ," but do so only in name, not in reality.
The New "Jesus" has the same name and is preached or promoted with the
same great Bible verses, but bears no recognition to the historic
message of the cross. The cross-centered life, where the flesh is
crucified and the self-life is denied, has no relationship to the
flamboyant Christianity of today that looks more extravagant than
Hollywood. The Jesus of the Bible, the risen Lord, who is presently at
the Father's right hand, would be totally repulsed by the worldly hype,
the godless singers, and all the fanfare that is the heart of today's
church world. He would march into these unholy temples and drive out
the false prophets that preach for wealth and gain. He would call them
"vipers" and "hypocrites." They would hate Him today just like the
Pharisees hated Him in their day. Let's look at a few clear
differences between the Son of God Himself and the new "Jesus" of
The new "Jesus" makes people wealthy, famous, and provides them
The crucified Jesus says, "Deny yourself, take up your cross, forsake
all, and follow me." This new "Jesus" says, "Indulge yourself." The
Lord says, "Humble yourself."
The new "Jesus" is a lawless "Jesus." The commandments of God are out
and any standard of Godliness is rejected and even repulsed.
The Biblical Jesus plainly said, "He that saith, I know him, and
keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him."
(I John 2:4).
The new "Jesus" loves for his followers to be loose, even dress vulgar
or at best casual. For the first time in church history, the dress
standard for God's house has become immodest, confusing, and cheap.
The new "Jesus" has no standard of right and wrong.
The historic Jesus floods human hearts with reverence and even an
awesome fear at the very mention of His name. Our Savior still
instills in "saved hearts" a beautiful desire to come before Him in
purity, holiness, and godly attire.
The new "Jesus" loves for women to be Jezebels and for men to be
effeminate. Cross-dressing is the love of those where this new "Jesus"
has manifested his dark confusion. It is a new "Christianity" where
the masculine "Jesus" has become a soft, slick, effeminate "Jesus."
The true eternal Son of God is absolutely masculine, authoritative, and
Sovereign. There is no sign or sense of weakness, compromise, or
effeminacies in Him or His person. Even the effeminate pictures
painted by perverted artists are totally out of order in a believer's
home. Do not ever use statues or pictures of Him to visualize or aid
you in worship. It is idolatrous and forbidden in Scripture.
The new "Jesus" loves the new music. The "blood" songs are too
old-fashioned. Songs about the Rapture, the Great Tribulation, or the
Millennial Reign are out and the new dominion songs are in. A favorite
is, "Come Ride With Me." It is a "Manifest Son's of God" song that has
the Son of God replaced by this new "Jesus" that is riding through the
land. The new songs are Beatle-type music. Beautiful women who are
seen dancing down the aisles are now said to be "returning the arts to
the church." The music prepares the emotions of these deceived
worshippers to receive the spirits of this new "Jesus."
Music is still a marvelous way to worship the Lord of the Church. Our
Jesus desires our worship, but will not receive anything but spiritual
worship and spiritual music. Soulical music or fleshly music that
feeds the appetites of the carnal man cannot be used for our Lord in
praise to Him. Our eternal Savior was the Creator of all things and
powerful spiritual music was at the core of the Heavenly scene as all
creation was planned.
The new "Jesus" says, Take the cross off the wall" so that sinners
won't be offended. The truth is that it isn't sinners that are
offended by the cross; it is the new "Jesus" that is offended. The
cross of salvation has been replaced by a false salvation born in hell.
The new "Jesus" had to go to hell and be born again instead of dying on
the cross. What an absolutely clear picture of what this new "Jesus"
really represents. He is an imposter from hell masquerading right in
the churches that claim the name of the Lord Jesus Christ Himself.
The true Lord of the church was crucified on a cross of shame as our
substitute. His death decided forever that Satan had lost and was
destined for defeat. Satan has used every idea that hell could produce
to rob that cross of its glory. Every effort has failed and this last
scheme is the devil's grand finale. It too will fail, but will serve
to show the world the final bankruptcy of Satan's kingdom.
[VW Editor: However, we are not supposed to have crosses "on the wall".
God commanded "You shall not make to yourselves any...likeness of
anything..." (Ex20:4) Please see:
10 Commandments and Q/A links.]
The New "Jesus" will eventually be manifest as an out and out
homosexual. Homosexuality is not just another sin in the long list of
sins. Homosexuality is rebellion against the very creation of mankind.
It is sin against the "image of God." It is a form of depravity that
confronts God in His very nature as the masculine Creator. This sin
will be the heart and soul of Satan's false kingdom that this new
"Jesus" is promoting. Daniel clearly shows this expression of the
false "Jesus" and the Antichrist personality in Daniel 11:36-39.
The precious Son of God is truly God manifest in the flesh. His nature
is divine and every expression of homosexuality will be banished from
the face of the New Earth. Jesus is the image of the Father and His
new glorified saints will be pure, sinless, and resurrected in His
The New "Jesus" is spectacular and will do many paranormal things to
titillate your flesh. His greatest attraction is the lying wonders
that he is already manifesting, but what is to come will be even more
convincing to the sign seekers. The few things that are already
occurring give us some idea of what he will produce. The
characteristics of these paranormal events will best be described as
"spectacular nonsense." Here are a few of the things already
- Angel feathers falling (Angels do not have feathers.)
- Gold dust falling on his worshippers.
- Gold filling, gold crosses appearing in teeth.
- Oil appearing in the palms of hands.
- Drunkenness, wallowing in a stupor, etc.
- Strange events in church, pulpits split by lightning, sound systems
shorting out, lightning system short-circuiting.
A perfect way to know that you are worshipping the new "Jesus" is if
any of these signs occur to you. If your church is experiencing these
signs, your church has changed to worshipping the new "Jesus."
The King of Kings will never titillate your flesh to try to gain your
surrender. His Word says, "Come now, and let us reason together
(mental activity), saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they
shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall
be as wool." (Isaiah 1:18). He saves by the preaching of His Word and
your acceptance of His gospel. Satan has no beauty, his offer is
deceptive and his promises are lies, so he must deceive you into his
false religious system. The Lord of Lords is creator of the earth, but
His invitation is based on truth and life-changing reality. You must
choose Him because you understand who He is and His offer to you.
The new "Jesus" is an "angel of light" from the pit of hell. He will
appear on walls and in strange paranormal ways. He will likely appear
as some great light or in a strange dream or revelation. Some of the
ways this strange "Jesus" appears may sound similar to some Biblical
event. Be careful to learn the voice of Scripture because there may
well be an event that only a discerning heart can know the truth.
The Son of God will always invite you to discern by truth, rightly
divided before you commit your soul. Our Redeemer never mixes a little
truth with a lot of error. Every expression of the Lord will be pure,
totally Biblical and sensible. He never manifests Himself in
"spectacular nonsense." He said, "I am the good shepherd, and know my
sheep, and am known of mine." (John 10:14).
The new Jesus loves the many corrupt Bible translations. The new
religious crowd hates "absolute truth" and they are arrogant in
supporting corrupt versions. This new "Jesus" loves anything that
connects the Scripture to the Roman Catholic Church. The constant
reduction of Jesus as Divine, the changing of Him as Master to merely a
teacher, plus thousands of other changes have been a great plus for the
new "Jesus." The new worshippers have followed the design of the new
versions by referring to the Lord Jesus in many cheap ways. Often He
is simply called "JC." Kenneth Copeland said that when he read where
Jesus said, "I am," he just smiled and said, "I am too."
The Lord Jesus is the Word of God. The written Word, when true to the
original text is just as truly the Word in written form as He is the
Word in living form. The Apostle John settled who Jesus is in His
Gospel. "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 light
shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not." (John
The new "Jesus" is delighted to have Mary as his co-redeemer. Mary and
her many false apparitions will continue to gain great popularity. One
Catholic priest in Charlotte was speaking to a "Women's Aglow" meeting.
They asked the false priest why Catholics prayed to Mary. He answered,
"Mary can con the Father better than Jesus." I heard these words with
my own ears or I would be unwilling to print them. The new "Jesus" is
Catholic, Charismatic, Evangelical, Mormon, Islamic, Hindu, etc. all
put together. The only group that this new "Jesus" cannot tolerate is
Bible-believing fundamentalists. We are hated by every manifestation
of this spirit.
Jesus Christ gave great honor to His earthly mother. She was a genuine
saint of God, but is no greater than any other obedient person. She
awaits the resurrection and it is nothing but necromancy (communication
with the dead) to suggest that she can talk to you or take you to God.
The Son of God clearly rejects all such foolishness about His earthly
The new "Jesus" is a sinner-friendly "Jesus." In fact, the new "Jesus"
is also "sin-friendly." Nothing is to be condemned or rejected by the
followers of this "Jesus." Tolerance is the word they have coined.
This new "Jesus" wants you to let him judge the sin and the sinner, but
remember his god is the devil and sin is his character.
The Son of God loves the sinner, but comes to him with conviction of
sin so the sinner can be redeemed. The first step towards the saving
merits of the Lord is to understand that you are a sinner. He will
never approach anyone in anything less than His holiness. The true
"sinner-friendly" Savior comes in such holiness that the sinner is
smitten in guilt. This is the true friend of lost souls.
There are many further differences between the new "Jesus" and the true
Jesus. Millions are being deceived. The flesh has no capacity to
discern between this titillating "Jesus" that comes in lies and
deceiving powers. The Word of God alone is our safety. Every believer
has the responsibility to warn souls of this darkness and to help the
few that are willing to listen. If Jesus warned of this false or new
"Jesus," then everyone should take the facts seriously. Just because a
preacher is smooth, soft, and is kind to you does not prove a thing.
Is he preaching the new "Jesus" or is he preaching the old-time truth
that saves? There is no excuse for the fact that you do not know
You can get on your knees right in your own world and surrender to the
Lord Jesus Christ. Give Him all and be willing to obey all of His
Words. "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every
word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matthew 4:4).
