Daily Devotional for Wednesday June 13, 2018
Baptizing the Dead
(2 Corinthians 5:8)
***DAILY PERSONAL PRAYER FOR YOU: Dear Lord! Today I come to you, asking you to bless the dear people who we faithfully minister to each day. I ask for your protection, that you meet their every need, and bless them and their families richly. As I have each morning for 19 years now, I commit YOUR work to you this day. May your Truth in the marketplace, lives be impacted, and souls saved….FOR YOUR GLORY! My life is in your hands and I simply ask that you use me so you are glorified!!! In the name of Jesus my Lord I pray….AMEN!!! Can you actually baptize a dead person? Over the years, I have done my best to educate you on the heretical beliefs of those in the satanic Mormon cult. Despite calling themselves Christians, Mormon doctrine is 100% INCONSISTENT with Biblical Christianity and a Mormon is no more a Christian than a Muslim is. Despite his moniker "the truth lives here," every time Glenn Beck calls himself a Christian he is LYING! To educate yourself, you can go to the Devotional archives on the Liveprayer.com website. Every Devotional I have written since we started August 31, 1999 is there, searchable by keyword or date. Just type in the keyword MORMON and every Devotional I have written dealing with this cult and their beliefs will come up. You can read exactly what Mormons believe and why when Beck, Romney, or anyone in their cult use the names God and Jesus, they are NOT speaking of the God and Jesus of the Bible! Today, I want to share with you another one of the false beliefs the Mormon cult holds, and that is the baptism of the dead. It is very simple. Beck, Romney, and those in their cult believe that you can baptize a dead person and transfer them from hell to heaven. Let me be very up clear so nobody misses this, the Bible teaches that ONCE A PERSON DIES, THEIR ETERNAL FATE IS SEALED! Again, ONCE A PERSON DIES, THEIR ETERNAL FATE IS SEALED! As long as a person has breath, they have the opportunity to ask Christ to forgive their sins and accept Him into their heart and life by faith and be saved. Even if it is with their last breath, a person can be saved. However, once you take that last breath it is too late. At that instant, you either know Christ as your Savior by faith, or you have rejected Christ as your Savior by faith. You are instantly either "with the Lord" for all eternity in Heaven, or you are cast into hell from which there is NO ESCAPE! For those who don't know, all of the major genealogy websites were created by and for Mormons. They are now being marketed for a huge profit as a way for people to look up their relatives. However, they were initially created for the purpose of Mormons tracing their ancestors who were long dead, in order to baptize them! There was a recent controversy over Mormons baptizing dead Jews from the World War 2 era. Let me also state that one of the man-made traditions of the Catholic Church is this state called "purgatory." Catholics believe purgatory is a place of limbo where a person has to stay for a period of time because of their sins, and at some point, they are able to leave and be in Heaven. There is absolutely ZERO Biblical support for this fantasy. Actually, the belief in purgatory contradicts what the Bible teaches, since the only way our sins can be cleaned is by repenting, confessing our sins to the Lord, and asking Him to forgive us and accept Him into our heart and life by faith. The only way our sins are taken from us is by the blood of Christ. No amount of money, no amount of good works, no amount of punishment can cleanse your from your sins. Only faith in Christ can do that! I love you and care about you so much. The Bible tells us in the last days the very elect would be deceived. As the nation and world gets further away from God and His Truth, stepping into the void are cult members like Beck, new age gurus like Deepak Chopra, and false religions like Islam. All of these cults, false religions, and new age philosophies are designed by satan to lead people AWAY from the Truth of the Bible and faith in Christ and their souls to hell. The Mormon lie of baptizing the dead is simply another of their heretical beliefs. Once again, the Bible teaches the moment you die you will either be in heaven or hell for all eternity, PERIOD! The bad news is if you reject Christ you will spend all eternity in hell, and the good news is that if you accept Christ as your Savior by faith you sill spend all eternity in Heaven. That is what this fight is really about...THE ETERNAL SOULS OF MEN! In His love and service, Your friend, brother, and co-laborer in His work, Bill Keller
