I'm sorry, Regina, but you've obviously misunderstood the purpose of this group. We do not accept proselytizing of any kind, whether from Christians, Pagans, Jews, Muslims, atheists or any other group who believe that their program is the only true/right/permissible way. That's precisely the sort of attitude that stands in the way of the Kingdom of Heaven, if you would but see it....and it is people like you, in the general sense of being insistent upon the absolute rightness of their beliefs and their absolute right to impose them on others, who are the cause of the Tribulation in this world, regardless of whom or what they say they follow.
That is why I say that "the meek shall inherit the earth" -- because they have no compulsion to force others to do as they do 'or else', no herdlike need to make others conform just as they do. The absolutists -- your side and all the other belligerent sides who want their faith to dominate the globe -- are not the peacemakers, are not the merciful, are not those who seek justice, are not those who truly hunger and thirst after real righteousness. They are not the followers of Christ, yet they have seized upon his name and taken it in vain, have latched it to their own pathological agenda of social control and insular security.
Christ did not seek to rule the world as a kingdom -- far on the contrary, he sought to free humanity from the domination of religious authorities and their stranglehold on the defining of morality. Don't ask me how I know these things, unless you care to pit your received beliefs against my direct...revelations. I know things that you do not. I know that you are being led, as many are being led, to preach that which they do not understand and demonise that which, again, they do not understand. Your screed of a creed is but the religious equivalent of a chain-letter....you haven't thought it out for yourself, and perhaps you've never really thought at all about the depth of these things you trot out so earnestly from the Scriptures. God will not punish people for not evangelizing (a virtuous example is more important than all the preaching in the world), but there are grave consequences for setting people against each other in the name of faith, and for doing violence against people's souls and minds in the name of faith.
Your mission to "spread the Word" is not needed. What is needed is your ability to follow virtue for yourself in your life, regardless of what others do or do not do, without trying to force them onto your path. Every person's soul is their own affair -- between them and God, as the expression goes -- and you do not help them by exhortations and threats. Carry your own cross, instead of telling others how to carry theirs -- live your own life that stands as your own example. Those who have ears to hear, let them hear -- but don't go bludgeoning them over the head if they don't jump to and fall into line.
Tend your own field. If the harvest is truly good, then others will see that it is so and follow what you do. But there are other good harvests elsewhere whose methods may be better for them to follow, and they all are part of the same universal yield. Let the matter go -- manage what you have in your trust already (as you imply you are a minister), but let others manage what is theirs. And accept that you do not know what path is best for all -- they must find that out for themselves, of their own choosing and call. It's called free will, and you do need to respect its continuing existence as part of the plan.
P.S. -- As for achieving the requisite "Good Heart Condition" you mention, I strongly recommend oatmeal. Lowers bad cholesterol, you know.

Subject: What Satan Doesn't Want You To Know
The hourglass is nearly empty. The Great Tribulation has begun and Armageddon looms in the very near future. There are a total of TWO things that you need in order to obtain Eternal Life and Man-Made Religion is not one of them. (1) An Acceptance of Christ as Lord and Savior. (2) A Good Heart Condition.
We urge those who wish to obtain Eternal Life in Christ's Kingdom to read the following very important message. We don't aim to twist arms or convince anyone of anything they aren't ready or willing to believe as their hearts will ultimately dictate what they perceive to be truth. However, it is also our responsibility to warn those who do not accept this Truth, will face Judgment at Armageddon. For this reason we pray that the eyes and hearts of all who read our message are opened to the Truth whether that is now, or in the near future when our words come to pass.
The Kingdom Message of Salvation is the Truth and validity of the Bible as a whole. As ministers with the Light of Life Ministry, we are doing as we are commanded within the Scriptures. Because we have been enlightened to the Truth, we have a heavy responsibility to pursue our Ministries. 1 Corinthians
"For if I preach the gospel, I have no reason to boast, because an obligation is placed on me. And woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!"
This is because once we have acquired Wisdom about the Truth, it is our duty to spread the message as far as we can over all of creation. If we fail to warn others, the Creator holds us accountable. To walk away is to be overshadowed with negativity. Ezekiel 3:17-18 gives insight on this.
"Son of man, I have made you a watchman over the house of
OUR MESSAGE OF TRUTH
The main theme of our Message of Truth is that those who wish to have eternal life must declare Jesus Christ to be Lord and Savior. This must be done in order to be one with His coming Kingdom.
We realize that many will challenge our faith and the faith of others who also declare Jesus to be Lord. They will say that we must meet certain requirements of water baptism, a belief in the Trinity and other man-made religious ideals. If those people have the right heart condition, they will see the Light. If not, they will remain opposed to what is ministered to them. That is their Free Will choice. Even if they claim to be foot-step followers of Christ, they will be deemed not worthy of Salvation unless they exhibit the Holy Spirit from within them. If they believe falsehoods about Christ, cling to their man-made religious belief systems and reject the truth will be marked accordingly by the Cherubic Order of Angels. All people are judged by what is really in their hearts.
As part of our Ministry to those that oppose the Truth, we point out that a humble heart is the only thing that saves anyone. Without it, you are endowed with negativity. What your heart is filled with is what springs forth with abundance from the mouth. Luke
"A good man produces good out of the good storeroom of his heart. An evil man produces evil out of the evil storeroom, for his mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart."
"Guard your heart above all else, for it is the source of life."
By knowing and understanding the Truth of the Word, you treasure up within your hearts what guides you (the Holy Spirit) so that you do not sin knowingly against Christ or his Father.
"I have treasured Your word in my heart so that I may not sin against You." Psalms 119:11.
The problem with sin is that it cultivates negativity. From the mind where it begins or originates, it creeps down into your heart. Then you're in trouble. That's why it's not a sin to think a bad thought, if you dismiss it. You did not act on it. Therefore, it is not a sin. But if you dwell on the wrong thought, it will creep on down into your heart and become a part of you. So, above all else, safeguard your hearts.
ALL WHO OPEN THEIR HEARTS TO CHRIST ARE ACCEPTABLE
People of all nationalities, regardless of race, color or religion are open to the Salvation of Christ.
"Then I saw another angel flying in mid-heaven, having the eternal gospel to announce to the inhabitants of the earth—to every nation, tribe, language, and people." Revelation 14:6.
"Hear this, all you peoples; listen, all who inhabit the world, both low and high, rich and poor together." Psalms 49:1-2.
"Then Peter began to speak: "In truth, I understand that God doesn't show favoritism, but in every nation the person who fears Him and does righteousness is acceptable to Him." Acts 10:34-35.
REMEMBER - IT'S A FREE WILL CHOICE
Everyone has Free Will Choice in the decision and are able to choose one way or the other. That's why we will not try to force the Truth on to anyone.
"I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you today that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Choose life so that you and your descendants may live, love the LORD your God, obey Him, and remain faithful to Him. For He is your life, and He will prolong your life in the land the LORD swore to give to your fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob." Deuteronomy 30:19-20
"But if it doesn't please you to worship the LORD, choose for yourselves today the one you will worship: the gods your fathers worshiped beyond the Euphrates River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living. As for me and my family, we will worship the LORD." Joshua 24:15
"If you carefully obey My commands I am giving you today, to love the LORD your God and worship Him with all your heart and all your soul, I will provide rain for your land in season, the early and late rains, and you will harvest your grain, new wine, and oil. I will provide grass in your fields for your livestock. You will eat and be satisfied. Be careful that you are not enticed to turn aside, worship, and bow down to other gods. Then the LORD's anger will burn against you. He will close the sky, and there will be no rain; the land will not yield its produce, and you will perish quickly from the good land the LORD is giving you." Deuteronomy 11:13-17
"This is how we are sure that we have come to know Him: by keeping His commands." 1 John 2:3
SALVATION - KINGDOM MESSAGE COMPLETED
Now, either you will accept or reject the Truth we have ministered to you. Since everyone should come to understand that actions result in consequences, we deliver the following warning. If you decide to refuse the truth, then you will know what is ahead--even if you reject that also, at this time. Later on, you will see our words come to life. If you accept the Truth now but are later tempted to cultivate negativity within your heart, then the warning we share might help to prevent that from happening.
YAHWEH'S BITTER-SWEET WARNING TO ALL PEOPLE OF THE EARTH
He that exercises faith in the Son has everlasting life. He that disobeys the Son will not see life. The Wrath of God remains upon him.
"The one who believes in the Son has eternal life, but the one who refuses to believe in the Son will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him." John 3:36
Once you have been given the Message of Truth, if you do not obey it you are exercising your Free Will choice. However, it will result in eternal death at the Judgment. Just as Satan and his angels cannot have free reign in creation - neither will it be permitted of those that exercise that choice. Your fate is upon your own head.
"Therefore I testify to you this day that I am innocent of everyone's blood, for I did not shrink back from declaring to you the whole plan of God." Acts
The above scripture reveals we will be clean from the blood of those who make the wrong choice. If you are so cultivated with negativity that you hear and know that what we speak is Truth and you continue to sin willfully by rejecting that Truth, then you will lose the Sacrificial Hope of Salvation. Time will eventually run out. Armageddon is the final Judgment Chapter.
"For if we deliberately sin after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins" Hebrews 10:26
"to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor, and the day of our God's vengeance..." Isaiah 61:2
"The tumult reaches to the ends of the earth because the LORD brings a case against the nations. He enters into judgment with all flesh. As for the wicked, He hands them over to the sword [This is] the LORD's declaration." Jeremiah 25:31
"I tell you that on the day of judgment people will have to account for every careless word they speak." Matthew 12:36
"When I say to the wicked, 'O wicked man, you will surely die,' and you do not speak out to dissuade him from his ways, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood." Ezekiel 33:8
WHO WE MINISTER TO AND SANCTIFICATON OF THE CREATOR'S NAME
This GOOD NEWS of the Kingdom will be preached in all the inhabited earth and bear witness to all the nations. The nations will be made to know Yahweh. His Name must be sanctified before the nations.
"I will honor the holiness of My great name, which has been profaned among the nations—the name you have profaned among them. The nations will know that I am Yahweh"—the declaration of the Lord GOD —"when I demonstrate My holiness through you in their sight." Ezekiel 36:23
"So I will make My holy name known among My people Israel and will no longer allow it to be profaned. Then the nations will know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in
ARE THERE ANY FREE RIDES TO ETERNAL BLISS?
Anyone that believes they can get a free ride through eternity without going through Christ, please read:
"There is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to people by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
Once you have received the Truth, you are under obligation by the Creator.
"Wisdom is supreme—so get wisdom. And whatever else you get, get understanding." Proverbs 4:7
