They Have Taken Away My Lord!
By David J. Stewart
John 20:13, “And they say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.”
In John 20:1-2 Mary Magdalene came to Jesus' tomb early Sunday morning. It was still dark and the sun hadn't risen. When she arrived she found the stone rolled away and the Lord's body gone. Mary was in despair and ran to find the apostles. When she came to Peter and John she said, “They have taken away the Lord out of the sepulchre, and we know not where they have laid him.” Mary sincerely thought someone had stolen the Lord's body. She wept in sadness. A short time later Mary's saw two men (angels) in the tomb where Jesus' body had been lain. They asked her why she was crying and she replied in verse 13, “Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him ”
I feel like Mary Magdalene in John 20:13, “And they [two angels] say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.” The public schools have taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid Him? The U.S. Supreme Court has taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid Him? Contemporary Christian singers and musicians have taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid Him? Modern corrupt Bibles have taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid Him? Today's apostate churches have taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid Him? Where have you laid my Lord? I want Him back! Please bring Jesus back to America!
Look at any mainstream Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) website and you WON'T find the Gospel. The Lord has been taken away, and I know not where they have laid Him. Instead of Christmas, wicked men have taken away my Lord and renamed it to “x-mas.” Instead of celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, they have taken away my Lord and replaced Him with Santa Claus. Instead of celebrating the resurrection of Christ, they have taken away my Lord Jesus and replaced Him with the Easter Bunny. Please bring my Lord Jesus Christ back!
The Roman Catholic Church (RCC) has taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid Him. Instead of worshipping Jesus, Catholics worship Mary “the Blessed Virgin” as they call her. Mary did not remain a virgin. Catholics teach the perpetual virginity of Mary, which is ridiculous and unbiblical. Catholics teach that Mary had no original sin (sin nature) and; therefore, was perfect and assumed bodily into Heaven bodily so that she didn't see death. The Assumption of Mary became official Catholic dogma in 1950 by Pope Pius XII. It is a false doctrine no where taught in the Scriptures.
Furthermore, the Bible proclaims in Romans 3:23, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (which includes Jesus' earthly mother. Mary was a sinner, like anybody else, and she died a natural death as all humans do. Catholics teach lies and unbiblical traditions that blind men from the truth of the Gospel. They have taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid Him. Jesus never sinned and is perfect (1st Peter 1:22); but Mary is a filthy sinner like an unclean dog. Please bring my Savior back and get rid of Mary.
Oh listen my friend, they have taken away my Lord and I know not where they have laid Him. I feel like Mary Magdalene in John 20:13, “And they [two angels] say unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? She saith unto them, Because they have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid him.”
Hollywood has taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him. Movies all curse in God's name and blaspheme the precious name of Jesus Christ. Hollywood hates the Lord Jesus Christ with a passion and desecrates everything holy, pure and righteous. Hollywood is a spiritual dungheap of maggots, rot and carnage. Woe unto Hollywood!
America's educational system has taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him. University professors shake the faith of our youth and teach the bogus lies of Evolution, humanism, paganism, atheism and heathenism. Instead of being institutions of learning, our colleges and universities have become indoctrination centers for Communist agendas and social immorality. Colleges have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him. America's corrupted universities are producing educated fools with no sense of wisdom and can't even use a hammer to pound nails. Literally, people with doctorates degrees don't even know the proper way to use a handsaw. People are dumber today than ever before when it comes to practical know-how and common-sense (uncommon these days).
They have taken away my Lord from television, radio, magazines, the internet, books and newspapers. They've taken away my Lord from the churches, replacing the doctrines of Christ with psychology instead.
The doctrine of Christ is all the Scriptural teachings concerning the nature, person, work and character of Jesus Christ; including (but not limited to) Christ's virgin birth, deity, Godhead, literal death and burial, bodily resurrection, sinless life, physical blood sacrifice on the mercy seat in Heaven, vicarious death, bodily ascension into Heaven, the free gift of eternal life, et cetera.
You'll never hear any of the televangelists or liberal preachers talk about these doctrines, but these doctrines are the heart of the Bible. 2nd John 1:9, “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.” Everybody's talking about psychology instead. They have taken away my Lord from the churches, and I know not where they have laid Him.
Someone once asked Bob Jones Sr. if a man has to believe in Christ's virgin birth to be saved. Dr. Bob wisely replied that a man who is saved WILL believe in the virgin birth of Christ. I was saved at age 13 and didn't know about the doctrine of Christ until many years later, but I readily accepted these truths when taught to me. The Holy Spirit beared witness with my spirit that they were true. Churches today have sold-out to become entertainment centers, like HILLSONG in Australia. They have taken away my Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him.
Have you seen Jesus in any public schools lately? I sure haven't, not since 1963 when He was kicked out and banned from coming back. Have you seen the Lord in the U.S. Supreme Court house? I know He's not there, but it'd be nice to think that maybe some day those wicked judges would repent and invite the Lord Jesus in to stay. You won't find Jesus amongst the Wall Street white-shoe boys club, aka, the banksters!!! They ran Jesus out of the banking business a very long time ago in 1913. They need to find Christ's righteousness, which gives us access to ALL THINGS (Romans 8:32). For Christ owns the cattle on a thousand hills. Psalms, 51:10, “For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills.” God owns all of the earth's resources. 1st Corinthians 10:26 says that the earth and all therein belongs to Him!!! Satan is the god of the evil (sinful) world; but not of the earth. God is still the God of the earth and the universe.
The mainstream lying newsmedia has taken away the Lord, and I know not where they have laid Him. Where is Christ in society today? Who welcomes the Lord Jesus Christ? Anybody???
Imaginary Conversation Between Alex Jones And The Angel Of The Lord
Alex Jones has taken away the Lord from His Daily Radio Show.
Many people like Alex Jones talk about how much they love Jesus, but Jesus is told to stay home (or in the car) because it's a “secular show.” I got to thinking today, what if Jesus sent an angel to warn Alex? What if the angel came today right to Alex Jones, asking Alex to preach the Gospel. What excuses would Alex make? Or would He change his mind and do it! Here's a fictitious conversation that I made up to express a point, that is, Alex ought to share the Gospel with His visitors, because Hell is real...
Angel: Alex, would you please share the Biblical Gospel of Christ's death, burial and resurrection with your listeners?”
Alex: “Sorry Jesus, we can't preach the Gospel on this show because it is SECULAR.”
Angel: “Oh, but Jesus died for your sins, He shed my blood, He gave everything so you can escape the horrors of Hell for all eternity. The angel looks at Alex Jones and says, “Alex, do you realize that if Christ hadn't died for your sins, that you would have had to be trapped in a horrible place that burns with flames of fire, being tormented in flames and brimstone for all eternity? There's no screaming that's ever been heard which can compare to th blood curdling screams from the fires of Hell. You'd lose your freedom and be locked up in Hell forever and ever. Did you know that? ...
All I'm asking is that you please serve God by telling others how to be saved. Christ died for your sins. Eternal life is a free gift. You don't have to do anything to get it, have it, nor keep it. You are saved Alex for believing the Gospel and you'll never go to Hell; but I'm asking you as a friend, please preach the Gospel to the lost who need it so desperately. I don't want tens-of-millions of your listeners to go to Hell.”
Alex: “But Lord, most of my visitors will be offended if I starting telling them how to be saved and go to Heaven. I'm struggling financially as it is. If I start promoting religion on my show, then it will hurt my crew of 32 employees financially. It just will. And I'm not a preacher (and don't know enough about the Bible) to defend myself. That's not the purpose of my show. So that's why I avoid religion, and keep it secular. And besides, Baptist preachers complain the most and give the least. My business would go under if I relied upon churchgoers to help finance my work to help save America and our families. Churchgoers are good people, but they already give money sacrificially to their churches and missionaries.”
Angel: “But Alex I hear you talking about religious topics almost every day. You talk about angels, demons, the Holy Spirit, the Bible, the Father, Evolution, Creation, the Old and New Testaments, Paul, James, Stephen, David, Moses, Abraham, and so forth. You have a religious show whether you realize it or not. Religions and the occult and interwoven with truth and lies. You cannot expose the occult without promoting the truth of the Bible. You can talk about the universes and leave God out. To mention God beckons to mention His Word, Commandments and principles.
Alex you mention the Bible often, and the truths from the Bible. It does bother Me Alex, because if you can say all these things, then you can preach the Gospel for one minute a day. Just one minute Alex! Can't Jesus your Lord have just one minute? The Lord paid for your sins Alex and am asking that you share the Gospel on your daily radio show as a Christian. Just let people know that you are a Christian. Tell them that you believe Jesus died, was buried and then He was resurrected after three days. Tell your listeners that you gave received the Gospel as payment for your sins and that is your hope for salvation.
You already tell your guests that you are an immoral man, and I commend you for your honesty Alex. But admitting that you're a sinner doesn't give you permission to continue in sin. The Judas Priest, Blue Oyster Cult and Led Zeppelin music displeases me. It is confusion. Alex, your listeners are confused. You say that you love Me, yet you promote satanic rock bands. You say that you cry when you think about my blessings in your life (and I have blessed you), but then you refuse to share the simple Gospel with your listeners. If you love Me Alex, FEED MY SHEEP!
Admitting that you are wicked doesn't excuse you from your duty as a child of God to preach the Gospel to everyone under your influence. Your radio shows reaches tens-of-millions per week. Use the Bible Alex, just read some Scriptures on salvation if you don't know what to say. Read 1st Corinthians 15:1-4 a couple times a week to your audience and then let the Holy Spirit work in their heart. Just give them the Words of God!!!”
Alex:“ But Lord I'm just a talk radio host!”
Angel: “That's ok, Peter was just a fisherman.”
Alex: But Lord, we're going to lose money.
Angel: “Ye cannot serve God and mammon (wealth) Alex.” You must choose sides. If God is in your work, then He will bless it.
Alex: “But Lord I've done so much to help people in your strength. Tens-of-millions of people support our cause and now their eyes have been opened about the evils of fluoride, vaccines, the criminal banksters and the evil tyranny of the New World Order....
Angel: Yes you have Alex and the Lord is proud of you for talking an uncompromising stand against the workers of iniquity. The Lord wishes that more of His children would get mad and do what you have done to take a stand. But Alex, if you use Van Halen, Judas Priest and ACDC to promote your show, then you are identifying your work with the devil and the carnal world. By admitting the you are immoral and wicked, yes, people can relate to you; but you don't tell people how they can have their sins cleansed away by trusting upon the BLOOD which Christ shed on the cross.
The blood of Jesus washes away the sins of any person (1st John 1:7) who repents (changes their mind) and believes the Gospel (good news) that Christ died, was buried and rose. To repent does not means to give up sins or bad habits. Biblical “repentance” is the word metanoeo in Mark 1:15 and means “a change of mind.” In other words, whatever it was that was hindering you (blinding you mind) from getting saved before, repent (change your mind) and believe the Gospel to be saved. It's that simple.
Please tell them Alex. Please tell them that I love them, and that I died for them, and that I was buried and three days later I resurrected triumphantly over death. I am their Savior, the Christ, the Son of God Who should come into the world and to seeks and save men (Luke 19:10) from their sins. Luke 1:77, “To give knowledge of salvation unto his people by the remission of their sins.” Amen! John 3:17, “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
Repentance Is 'A Change Of Mind'
Jesus died, was buried and rose again to pay for our sins. He shed His blood and took that physical blood with Him to Heaven, applying the literal blood to the heavenly mercy seat (Hebrews 9:12,22-24). It was finished! Christ's work of redemption was finished at the mercy seat in Heaven once He applied the blood! You don't have to know this to be saved, just like you don't have to know about the virgin birth, sinless life, vicarious death, et cetera; but AFTER you are saved and you learn these doctrines over the years, you know they are true and accept them. These are referred to as the “doctrine of Christ” (2nd John 1:9).
“To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: Whom we preach, warning every man...” —Colossians 1:27-28
