Dear Elder Murray:
Surely you are a man who loves God. Moreover, you have demonstrated that you are a man who has love for TRUTH. I have watched several of your videos and it is clear that you believe that you have the ultimate understanding of the Word of God in the name of JESUS. However, I have discovered that it is a continuous learning process if you have love for TRUTH.
However, today I am writing you regarding the contention regarding women’s roles in the Church. Elder Murray I have watched the video titled: “Can Women Preach – March 5, 2017”. In the video you stated that you were the mailman and you should not attack the mailman. Therefore, Elder Murray I pray that you will not attack me because I am also a mailman. What would you do if you discovered that Apostle Paul was in his flesh when he wrote the statement: “I suffer not a woman to teach…”? Jesus gave us a way to determine if doctrine is of man or of God.
Elder Murray this is not an attack on you, however it goes back to about A. D. 63 when Apostle Paul wrote 1st Timothy. We have used the process that Jesus gave us at John 7:16-18 to make the determination if Apostle Paul was in his flesh when he wrote certain communications. Moreover, we also took heed to what Apostle Paul wrote in A. D. 49, when he wrote Galatians 1:8-9. In addition to these measures, we carefully examined the scriptures that reflected the gospel and the life of the early Church.
Let’s commence by reviewing what Jesus said regarding how to determine if the doctrine is of God or if the doctrine is of man. Let’s see what Jesus says at John 7:16-17.
“16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine, but his that sent me. 17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. 18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.”
It is also important to note what Apostle Paul wrote in A.D. 49 in Galatians 1:8: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” When Apostle Paul made the comment: “But though we” he was also including himself. We know that God used Apostle Paul in a mighty way. As we study the scriptures it is also clear that Apostle Paul had first-hand knowledge how God used women in the church to work the gospel. Apostle Paul even witnessed how God opened the heart of Lydia to attend to the things that he taught. Moreover, Apostle Paul even acknowledged women laboring in the gospel; some of these women were even in leadership roles. Apostle Paul was a man, like Apostle Judas who betrayed Christ and Apostle Peter – who denied Jesus three times. At Galatians 2:9-15, Apostle Paul explained how he had to bring Apostle Peter in check when Peter did not walk uprightly according to the gospel. Nevertheless, Apostle Paul admitted that he had a problem! Apostle Paul’s Thorn in the flesh is described in the King James Bible 2 Corinthians 12:7. Apostle Paul was always buffeted. Romans 7:13-25 describe the spiritual state Apostle Paul was in. At Roman 7:21, Apostle Paul writes: “I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.”
Elder Murray, do you realize that about three years after Apostle Paul wrote 1st Timothy he wrote 2nd Timothy? Apostle Paul did not write 1st Timothy until A.D. 63 and he wrote 2nd Timothy between A. D. 65 and A. D. 67. Elder Murray it is apparent that you believe Apostle Paul was speaking on the behalf of God when he wrote this statement: “I suffer not a woman to teach” in 1Timothy. However, the scriptures do not support this disposition. Luke did not include this doctrine in any of his writings. There is no record of any of the Apostles writings that God said he suffers not a woman to teach. In Acts 17:1-4, Luke gives an account of what happened in Thessalonica. Luke writes at Acts 17:4 “And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few. At Acts 17:10-14, Luke records what happened in Berea. At 17:11-12, Luke states: “These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they receive the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so. (12) Therefore many of them believed; also of honorable women which were Greeks, and of men, not a few.” Elder Murray, do you really believe that these women were told that God suffers not them to teach, they must learn in silence, and they shall be saved in childbearing, if…”? There is no record that Jesus said anything like this in any of his sermons. In fact, Jesus said at Matthew 28:19, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations…” Elder Murray, do you believe that Jesus gave this command only to the men? There is no record where any of the Apostles imposed these restrictions on women in the Body of Christ.
Elder Murray, do you realize that all in Asia no longer followed Apostle Paul after he wrote 1st Timothy? Listen carefully, at 2 Timothy 1:15, the Apostle writes: 15 ‘This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.” At 2nd Timothy 2:17-18 he explains errors of Phygellus and Hermogenes why they were no longer following him. However, there were seven Churches in Asia; Apostle Paul wrote all in Asia were turned away from him at 2nd Timothy 1:15. Why did these Churches turn away from Apostle Paul? Is it possible that they viewed that Apostle Paul had perverted the gospel of Christ? It is of utmost the importance to revisit what Apostle Paul wrote in Galatians in A.D. 49 at Galatians 1:8, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” According to the scriptures, although Apostle Paul wrote all in Asia had turned away from him, these seven Churches in Asia were still functioning even after Apostle Paul was beheaded.
We applied the resolution that Jesus gave at John 7:16-18 and what Apostle Paul wrote at Galatians 1:8 to reach these conclusions that when Apostle Paul wrote 1st and 2nd Timothy (1) he was in the flesh (2) he wrote his own doctrines and gospel (3) and he glorified himself. When you read 2 Timothy 4:7-17, you can clearly see how Apostle Paul glorified himself in this work.
Surely, the Churches in Asia considered him to be accursed. The evidence is overwhelming that there were women working the gospel and some of these women were in leadership roles; Luke and Apostle Paul acknowledged this truth in their writings. In addition, Apostle Paul even wrote new requirements for women to receive salvation that were not taught by Jesus or any of the other Apostles. Moreover Apostle Paul even called it his gospel at 2nd Timothy 2:8 and his doctrine at 2nd Timothy 3:10. However, Jesus said that the doctrine was not his but it was the one that sent him.
Apostle Paul was beheaded in A. D. 67 shortly after he wrote 2 Timothy and Titus. James 1:8 says: “A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” Surely, God is not double minded. Elder Murray, do you really believe that God would have told Paul to write that He (God) suffers not a woman to teach in A.D 63 and about three years later God says a woman can teach good things? Would teaching good things include teaching of the gospel of Christ?
Listen carefully, Satan has been very effective and he has deceived many. Apostle Paul was a man like Apostle Judas and Apostle Peter; therefore he was subject to err as we are today. Consequently, today Satan has been effective in facilitating his plan by using men like you who have love for TRUTH; Satan knows that he can use them when they believe they have obtained in their minds ultimate understanding of the Word of God. God says that he will lead us to all truth; however we must be willing to receive TRUTH.
Elder Murray, if you truly have love for the TRUTH, you will read the enclosures and discover Satan’s plan and how he used Apostle Paul and how the err of Apostle Paul is still affecting the Church today. Pastor Murray, once you read and discover this TRUTH you will have to make one of the most important decisions in your life. At that point, you must decide whether you are going to repent and follow the doctrine and gospel of God or doctrines of Apostle Paul when he was in his flesh. Man of God, you have been deceived and many Saints have been harmed because of this deception.
Elder Murray, several days ago, I had a dream – in that dream I exposed a large snake. Today, God is using me as one of His Prophets to expose this huge snake to you and the Body of Christ. The Body of Christ is being harmed by some false doctrines that Apostle Paul wrote when he was in the flesh. You and many others deny women the opportunities to use their gifts and to operate in their callings because many use for their doctrines; doctrines that were written by Apostle Paul when he was in his flesh. Surely, God in the name of JESUS is not double minded. Today, many use the doctrines of Apostle Paul when establishing policies for the appointment of bishops, elders, and deacons. Moreover, GOD’s callings on women’s lives are not honored by many who profess to be Christians because there are some Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, and Teachers who have been deceived and have failed to study to show themselves approved unto God in the name of JESUS. Jesus has given us a way to make the determination whether or not doctrines are of man or God; we have used the process that Jesus has given us to reach the stated conclusions. The rationalities of men cannot replace the process that God has given to use to make this determination; moreover there is no prophecy of the scripture for private interpretation.
God wants me to share this with you so you will discover the deception and repent and then work to help end this attack on the Body of Christ. God loves you, Man of God; however Satan does not want you to discover this Truth because Satan knows that once you discover this TRUTH, you will no longer be one of his mail carriers. Nevertheless, some will not repent because of personal pride. At this junction of your ministry, why should you repent when more doors have opened for you to share the false doctrine of Apostle Paul when he was in his flesh? Moreover, there are thousands following you on YouTube and more than 45,000 have clicked onto this video. Surely if you repent, you will be buffeted and the thought of losing these opportunities that are before you now may become a concern. However, if you repent and no longer carry Satan’s mails you will disappoint many. Therefore, Satan is counting on you not to read the enclosures. But, God in the name of JESUS knows your heart. However, there are some who will not repent even after they discover this TRUTH and the harm that they have brought to the Body of Christ. We pray that you are not in that number.
We have prepared several articles and videos on this subject. They are posted on our website, www.revelationuptotheminute.org . We have enclosed two articles. One of the articles is titled: “Determining Whether Doctrines are of God or Man! Women’s Roles in the Church.” In this article, we limited the text, omitted the foundation of Satan’s plan and we do not include all the referenced scriptures. However, we go direct to the heart of the problem and provide the solution at the direction of God in the name of JESUS. However, we have also enclosed a more comprehensive article that aligns scriptures, it is about 30 pages. In the more comprehensive article, we laid the foundation of the works of the Apostles and show the assured foundation and the process that was used by Satan to infiltrate the printed gospel. Moreover, you will be able to see the cunning and craftiness of Apostle Paul to effect Satan’s plan. The commentaries in both works are very limited; however you will find short transitions that link certain concepts and scriptures. Both articles are also posted on our website.
I pray in the name of JESUS that you will take time out and at least read these articles and watch the video titled: “Women Roles in the Church: Addressing the Contention.” After you review these works you will clearly understand the task before you. We are sharing these works with saints around the world. Some of these saints will not listen to what we have to say because they believe that Apostle Paul was speaking in the behalf of God when he wrote 1st Timothy; like you were deceived they have been deceived. We need your help to thwart Satan’s plan. Man of God, God in the name of JESUS wants you to carry only His mail! How do you know that I am one of God’s mail carriers? I asked God to show me something that would happen soon so you will know that He has sent me. This morning in a dream, God showed me that there will be an earthquake in the Los Angeles/Hollywood area soon. First there were two small quakes, next there was a larger one that followed – I woke up before the full impact of the quake. In the past, when I asked God for this type of confirmation it normally happens within about 30 days.
Pastor Murray, you are in our prayers.
