About Me

Shadrach Ere

And he said, “Who are You Lord?” And the Lord said, “I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” Acts 9:5. The Jesuits who demonize my testimony to defend the Divinity of Pope Francis are kicking against the goads. Which is very harmful for their toes. It was the Holy One, Christ and the Father that blessed me in Eternity. “For thus says the High and the Lofty One, Who inhabits Eternity, Who lives forever, Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, with him who has a contrite and a humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, And to revive the heart of the contrite ones.” Amen. Isaiah 57:15. “The Lord Jesus Christ is my Shepherd. I shall not want.” Psalm 23:1. “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13. “By my God Christ Jesus I can leap over a wall.” Psalm 18:29. “There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe.” John 1:6-7. Like John the Baptist, Shadrach Ere is sent by the Father to bear witness of that Glorious Light, Who is Christ the Lord on earth, before His Second Coming…”looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ…” Amen. Titus 2:13. The breath I draw in is from Christ. He is the reason for my existence. I am not the Christ as the other diabolical people claim, nor am I any of the false prophets as mentioned by Christ in Matthew 24:5 & 11. Jesus fulfilled the Law’s demand for me on the Cross at Calvary, thereby saving me from eternal damnation! “There was no other good enough To pay the price of sin, He alone could unlock the gate of Heaven and let us in.”— Cecil Francis Alexander. Priscilla Jane Owen’s song: “Will your anchor hold in the storms of Life?” Unless one has Christ as his Lord and Savior his anchor can not hold in the storms of life. May Jesus Christ the Holy One of Israel be praised forever and ever! “Honesty and fairness are His Royal Robes.” Isaiah 11:5 (Contemporary English Version)

2. “God —Jesus Christ, is wise in heart and mighty in strength. Who has hardened himself against Him and prospered.” Job 9:4. Catholics believe that their war machine can take down the Father and Christ, and thereby make history for themselves. It is not easy for them to reverse God’s blessings for Shadrach Ere! It was Christ and the Holy Father who blessed me and not Allah, the God of the Pope and the Roman Catholics, who prays for, and prays to his prophet Mohammad! Unlike the Pope and the Roman Catholics, Christ is the name of my God and not Allah. Pope Francis is leading his brainwashed followers to perish in Guyana like the “Reverend” Jim Jones did. The Holy Spirit never leads Pope Francis or any of his predecessors. They teach doctrines of the Devil and not of Christ, the true God. The Devil leads them through the “Marian” apparitions and the Locutions, lying wonders. The word of God says, “Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.” Ephesians 5:11.

3. It is written: “The adversaries of the LORD shall be broken in pieces. From Heaven He will thunder against them…” 1st Samuel 2:10. The Roman Catholics are most ill equipped to fight against the Father and Christ over my blessings! They will all be crushed to powder.

4. “Stand up and bless the LORD your God [Jesus Christ] Forever and ever! Blessed be Your glorious name O Christ which is exalted above all blessing and praise!” Amen. Nehemiah 9:5  “From the rising of the sun to its going down, The Lord’s name is to be praised. The Lord is high above all nations, His glory above the heavens. Who is like the Lord our God, Who dwells on high, Who humbles Himself to behold The things that are in the heavens and in the earth?” Psalm 113:3-6 New King James Version (NKJV). Jesus is El Shaddai, God Most Powerful! He is the Supreme, All-Powerful God!

Some of my favorite hymns for Christ and the Father, the El Tsaddik,”The Righteous God” ; Yahweh, “The All-Powerful Covenant keeping God”; The Kinsman-Redeemer Jesus Christ, The Son of the Most High God, the Melchizedek, the Eternal Priest of the Most High God, Who blessed me in Heaven:

5. “God has spoken in His holiness; I will rejoice!” Psalm 60:6. Only a fool would not rejoice when the Alpha and Omega, Christ and the Father, has spoken the most powerful blessings for him on Earth. And Shadrach Ere is not a fool. He must rejoice to show his utmost gratitude to Christ and the Father Who blessed him. “For He who is mighty has done great things for me, And holy is His name. And His mercy is on those who fear Him From generation to generation.” Amen. Luke 1:49-50. It is my greatest privilege to serve the Lord Jesus and proclaim Him as the only One who is Holy as the Seraphim angels do without ceasing: “Holy Holy Holy is the LORD of Hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory.” Isaiah 6:1-3. Reginald Heber puts His angelic praises into the song: “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty! “The trihagion—the thrice invocation of “holy”—in the seraphim’s worship of God is significant. The fact that the seraphim in Isaiah’s vision use a three-fold repetition of God’s holiness—called the trihagion—is significant. In ancient Judaism, the number “three” signified completeness and stability, here connoting God’s wholeness as the beginning, the middle, and the end. Announcing God’s holiness three times also connotes: God’s eternal nature, which is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8); God’s divine perfection as seen in the Holy Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit; and God’s complete and supreme holiness, unmatched by anything or anyone else.”  Amen. https://www.christianity.com/wiki/angels-and-demons/who-are-the-seraphim-in-the-bible.html

6. “And their words seemed to them like idle tales, and they did not believe them!” Luke 24:11. The over-size blessings spoken for Shadrach Ere by the Father and Christ are not idle tales. Who ever refuses to believe will be put to shame! The Lord of Hosts has sworn: “As I have planned, so shall it be, and as I have purposed so shall it stand.” Isaiah 14:24. Amen.

7. “Blind unbelief is sure to err, And scan His work in vain; God is His own interpreter, And He will make it plain” Amen! William Cowper, Anglican Hymnist. “Many are the plans in a person’s heart but it is the LORD’s purpose that prevails.” Amen. Proverbs 19:21.

8. And the prophet Micaiah said, “As the LORD lives, whatever the LORD says to me, that I will speak.” Amen. [So am I] 1st Kings 22:14. Shadrach Ere’s blessings are bogus if he ever added his own words to the words of the Living God — Jesus Christ and the Father. Also he will burn in hell forever and ever, for putting words into the mouth of Christ and the Father, A most egregious unpardonable sin! It it written “Who has spoken and it came to pass, unless the LORD has commanded it?” Lamentations 3:37. Kenneth Copeland and his syndicate of prosperity Gospel preachers do not have the power to speak anything into existence as claimed. It is only when the Word God Jesus Christ speaks, that things come into existence. But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” Amen. Matthew 19:26.

9. “My tongue shall speak of Your word O Christ!” Psalm 119:172. “What a word this is!” Luke 4:36. “The words that I speak to you, they are spirit, they are life.” says the Lord Jesus Himself. Amen. John 6:63.

10. And Jehoshaphat said to the king of Israel, “Please inquire for the Word of the LORD today.” Amen. 1st Kings 22:5. The word of the LORD for Jehoshaphat and King Ahab was that Ahab would be killed in the battle against the Syrians and all Israel would be scattered. And it did happen. The true prophet, Micaiah was proved right. The word of the LORD today is: 1) Christ said in Heaven, “Father, this boy [Shadrach Ere] is My best friend on earth!” And the Father said, “Christ let him be the greatest on earth!”2.) “He will be a medical doctor, who will heal all the diseases, if they say thank you God, for the medicine he gives them.” 3.) “He will hear all the languages of the Earth but will not be able to speak them.” Etc, etc. As the wicked King Ahab of Israel got killed according to the prophecy of Micaiah so must the prophecies of Shadrach Ere come to pass, according to the word of the Lord or the Kingdom of Christ will go down in flames! The Holy Spirit wrongfully Killed Ananias and Sapphira if my blessings do not come to pass. They did not lie to God! (Acts 5:1-10) Shadrach Ere is the greatest and the best friend of Christ on Earth, according to the word of the LORD. Roman Catholicism and their Popes is not Christ’s cup of tea! They ally with the Muslims undermining the Deity of Christ saying He is Allah’s slave instead of his Creator and God. Allah is a strange God, not the God of the Bible. He is only the God of the Muslims and the Quran. And there are no Abrahamic faiths— the Devil’s syncretic religion which the Roman Catholics promote. Anybody who promotes Abrahamic faiths as genuine, has denied that Christ died on the Cross sacrificially on their behalf, to deliver them from the punishment of hell. Only very few people will inherit Heaven. “For many are called, but few are chosen,” says Christ the Lord. Matthew 20:16. Jesus is the God of the Old and the New Testaments of the Holy Bible. The Roman Catholic Popes and their doctrines encourage the Catholics in Malaysia and Lebanon etc, to write Allah as God in place of Jesus in the entire Bible, most egregious! The Roman Catholics together with the Muslims, Allah and Mohammad, are the mortal enemies of Christ. Only very few people will inherit Heaven which Christ has prepared for them that love and worship Him as the only True God. “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. 9 For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.” Colossians 2:8-10. “Your testimonies are very sure O Christ; Holiness adorns Your house, O LORD, forever.” Amen. Psalm 93:5.

11. “For the LORD of Hosts has prepared His plans in the heavens: who shall frustrate it? His is the hand stretched out, and who shall turn it back?” None dare! Isaiah 14:27.

12. “As for God, Jesus Christ and the Father who spoke the blessings for Shadrach Ere, His way is perfect; The word of the LORD is proven; He is a shield to all who trust in Him.” Amen. Psalm 18:30. Christ must vindicate me for the truth in my testimony, before the Roman Catholics and the Pope! Otherwise He is a false God and unworthy of worship. But Jesus must be the only true God worthy of worship. The Father said this for Him: “Let all the angels of God worship Him.” Amen. Hebrews 1:6. The blessings which Christ and the Father spoke for me in Heaven May 14/15th 1970: From the mouth of Christ: He said, “Father, this boy [Shadrach Ere] is My best friend on Earth!” And from the mouth of the Father: 1. “Christ let him be the greatest on Earth!” 2. “He will be a medical doctor who will heal all the diseases if they say Thank you God for the medicine he gives them.” 3. “He will hear all the languages of the Earth, but will not be able to speak them!” At the end of these blessings which the Father spoke for me, Christ most reverently, most sincerely, and most lovingly said to the Father, “Father Your word is Truth.” Amen. John 17:17. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.” James 1:17-18. But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God, Jesus Christ and the Father, all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26. “God Jesus Christ and the Father, is most glorified by bringing an event to pass which seems impossible to men.” From “Is it True that “With God All things are Possible”? There is no one in Heaven or on Earth that is capable of neutralizing Shadrach Ere’s testimony. The blood of Jesus that cleanses all unrighteousness can not do it also. And the Father and Christ Who blessed me can not do it either. But the Roman Anglo-Catholics and Pope Francis boast, that they can neutralize my testimony, where Christ and the Father can not do it! And that they even have the power to bring Christ from the Father’s bosom to their alter for sacrifice each time they hold a Mass, using special incantations and invocations. Roman Anglo-Catholics are not Christians. They worship Satan who feeds them with lies, ensnaring them to hell. Both Christ and the Father is a double minded God, unstable in all His ways as in James 1:8, if the blessings spoken for me are not fulfilled to a tee. Jesus and the Father can not possibly execrate my name as a liar, and the Bible would not be deemed as the word of the Devil instead of the word of God! The Bible is evil, filthy, and full of lies if Shadrach Ere’s blessings fail to manifest, even by a comma on Earth. And the Roman Catholic hierarchy must bow down before him with their faces to the Earth, as Joseph’s brothers did to him in Egypt. “And Joseph’s brothers came and bowed down before him with their faces to the Earth.” Genesis 42:6. “Deceit and error are not normally attributes expected of God — the Christian God Jesus Christ and the Father, Who blessed Shadrach Ere.” from Bibilcal Inerrancy as understood by conservative protestants. Richard Simon (1638-1712) who rejected Moses as the author of the Pentateuch and propagated the limited or the partial inerrancy of the Bible the word of God, will perish together with all his liberal Roman Catholic converts and many protestant liberals.
