Q: What major do you have? Why did you choose this major?
A: I graduated from Fresno Pacific University in 2008. I majored in Biblical Studies with an emphasis on Biblical Literature. My minor was in Contemporary Christian Ministry. I chose this field of study because I wanted to go into full time ministry as a pastor. At that time I was working as a youth pastor at Tulare First Baptist Church. I had plans to take classes from Liberty University for Masters of Divinity, but never continued do to life circumstances. I was convinced that God’s plan for my life was to be a pastor of a church and to lead people as a minister.
Q: When did you start your website and what was the reason for doing so?
A:Back in 2011 I started to have visions of Jesus Christ coming. I wanted to just go out and tell everyone what I was seeing! People thought I was a fanatic and had lost my mind. I didn’t get very far talking to people in person. I would get some pretty strange looks. Few cared to listen. Around that time a friend of mine said I should put up my testimony on youtube and maybe some people could benefit from it. That year (2011) in October I started posting videos on Youtube. Later I decided to build my own website and post videos from my channel. The main idea of the Warningthepeople.com website in addition to Youtube was to provide a bit more content and utilize the web address to advertise as a .com site.
Q: How do you feel about the church and the way the church teaches the message of Jesus?
A: The organized (501c3) mainstream church of today is at best is a social club and business. Just like any other merchant, they are trying to make proselytes and money. Even though churches are considered “non-profit”, they profit entirely off of their members support. Pastors are paid by their congregation to say what their members want to hear. If a pastor of a church really heard from Jesus supernaturally and repeated God’s words, ether he would be fired or the congregation would leave.
Q: What do you define your page as? Is it a shelter for people who are lost in life and looking for safety? Or is it a journal?
A: I define my page as warning the people. It is literally just that. I am warning people that Jesus is seriously coming and the so called “church” of today and the “pastors” are nowhere near ready for His return. My website is to show the world what Jesus started showing me personally. Anyone who wants to hear my testimony now can if they care to look. Q: What are your trying to achieve with your website? Did you achieve your goal yet?
A: Ultimately my goal is to obey my Lord Jesus and make disciples. Some people sell their soul to Satan for money power and fame. I did the exact opposite. When I started hearing Jesus I sold my soul to Jesus in exchange for His way and life, for His truth. Now I work for Him only. Jesus called all His disciples to do that, to make disciples. He told me though to “Preach the gospel free of charge.” Not like the pastors who preach for money, fame, respect and a good reputation.
Q: What do you think about the hierarchy of the church system?
A: The church bases the legitimacy of their hierarchy off of the ideology of the Catholic Church, which was a misinterpretation of the words of Jesus found in Matthew 16:18 When Jesus said to the Apostle Peter “On this rock I will build My church…” Jesus was not proclaiming Peter as a Pope or sanctifying the Catholic Church system of Popes to follow. Rather, when Jesus said “On this rock I will build My church” He was referring to the faith of Peter when Peter said in Matthew 16:16 “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” I recognize that the Bible has much to say in regards to positions in the church, however today these scriptures are extensively used to legitimize illegitimate “ministries” that have nothing to do with the Kingdom of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ. There are an extraordinary amount of paradoxical teachings of Jesus which seem to contradict other scriptures. Pastors will quickly give their own explanations to justify these paradoxical teachings without ever knowing what Jesus really meant. I want to give you one example. In 1 Corinthians 12:28 the Apostle Paul writes; “And God has appointed these in the church: First apostles, second prophets, third teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, varieties of tongues.” See, churches will use this text and others like it to prove the legitimacy of their hierarchy and their pastor as their head Teacher. However, Jesus says something totally different in regards to such a hierarchy. Jesus says this in Matthew 23:8-10 “But you, do NOT be called “Rabbi”, for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are ALL brethren. Do NOT call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do NOT be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ.”
This teaching of Jesus is quite the paradox! You have some who say their church is the authority and their pastor is the teacher, but then you have Jesus who says CALL NO ONE ON EARTH YOUR FATHER OR TEACHER. To understand this paradoxical teaching of Jesus you have to really get to know who He is. Those who don’t know who Jesus is just make up their own interpretation to what He meant and teach others what they THINK He meant.
Q: What is Jesus message?
A: Jesus came to take away the sins of the world. He came to save people not to damn them. Most Christians however are on their way to hell because they do not follow Jesus but men in church, the pastors. Jesus will say to many Christians who believed they were saved; “I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!” (Matthew 7:23) Jesus message to His people today is to REPENT and to be HOLY, to come OUT of church and worldliness, to be separate from them.(2 Corinthians 6:17)
The church of today teaches people that no one can stop sinning and they openly admit their churches are full of hypocrites. Jesus said the exact opposite. Jesus said in John 8:34-36 “Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a SLAVE of sin. And a slave does NOT abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever, therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” Jesus was speaking to the religious folk and it is no different today. Anyone who sins is a slave and will not experience God’s grace forever. Eventually every person dies. Those who are slaves are bundled up and cast into the fire. Those who are free are the ones who will abide with the Lord Jesus forever. (Matthew 13:30)
Jesus said that “whoever causes one of these little ones who believes in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and he were drowned in the depths of the sea. (Luke 17:2/ Matthew 18:6) The church of today openly causes their little ones who believe in Jesus to sin. What do you think will happen to them? By these words from Jesus do you REALLY think Jesus would be pleased with the church and their doctrines to their little ones about SIN? Remember, they teach no one can stop sinning and teach against the sayings of Jesus.
Q: What are you doing for the local community. What are you doing for the global community?
I am not part of any church, organization or social club. I’m not trying to convince anyone how good I am by my works and involvements. I just follow Jesus Christ and do whatever He tells me to do each day even if it seems odd or worthless to others in my community. I do not have a master plan for my life nor do I plan long in advance as some do. Jesus is my plan and makes them for me. Jesus said “The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit.” Some time ago I started making T-shirts with Jesus messages on them. I print them myself. I started putting them up on my website and blogspot. People all around the world have asked for them and have been excited to wear them! You can see example t-shirts I have made at warningthepeople.blogspot.com or warningthepeople-YouTube.com under t-shirts.
Q: Do you have a favorite quote from the Bible? If so why is it your favorite?
A: I like 1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 it says; “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. Do NOT quench the Spirit. Do NOT despise prophecies. Test all things; hold fast what is good. Abstain from every form of evil.” I like this passage because it encourages people to hear NEW revelation from God and NOT to be against prophecies from God. You know, most Christians believe the Bible is a closed book, not to be continued. They think everything is said and done and that God no longer speaks to people directly. That is not true. Clearly the Acts of the Disciples is still being written today, everyday!
Q: What makes you different from the church?
A: Well, there is only two churches today. There is the visible church. These are the ones you see in the cities on all the street corners. They are the churches that set up hierarchies and pay pastors and have legitimate ministries. These churches openly admit they are sinners and promote sin. There is really no difference between them and the world. THEN there is the true church that is connected to Jesus. These are the ones that are spread all over the earth, they are few and sparse. They hear from Jesus directly and are loyal to Him. They do not go on in sin or promote sin. They have given up their own personal lives to be disciples who actually follow Jesus. These people do not have a pastor but have made JESUS their only Teacher JUST as Jesus commanded them to do. (Matthew 23:8-13) These do not belong to church but they belong to JESUS!
