Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for Russ Dizdar’s service that you used in accordance with your will. May you guide and lead his followers into all truth. I pray that those who would be led to read and watch the video of this update may not be hardened in heart but listen and have eyes to see and receive the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus Christ in accordance with Ephesians 1:17-20 KJV. Lord I pray this work stands as an eternal witness and testimony before you. May I serve you in all the days I have left by your Grace and to STRIVE LAWFULLY in accordance with your word and by your word which is Truth and sharper than any 2-edged sword and may my sword which is the spirit which is the word of God stand forever in your honor and to you glory forever Amen! Maranatha!
NOTE regarding prayer: No doubt God certainly used Russ Dizdar’s service and used his work in accordance with God’s “PERMISSIVE” WILL. God uses all things for his ultimate purpose. However, for a good soldier to strive for masteries, yet he is NOT Crowned, except he strive LAWFULLY which is God’s PERFECT WILL. AMEN!
The most painful for me personally is I came out of the NAR and Apostolic Wrong Dispensation teaching. The massive amounts of money and work and time I spent of over 20 years of my life was striving unlawfully and this work of mine I did for the Lord will be burned at the BEMA no doubt according to Scripture. Yes, over 20 years of my life’s work for the Lord was not striving lawfully. I like the Apostle Paul am the chiefest of sinners and I wasted my zeal for the Lord after the Kingdom building efforts and not after Christ Jesus – although I used all the right words. Back in 2005 after the Lord took me to the woodshed I woke up and came out of the Dominion – Kingdom NAR movement and for this reason my heart has a deep burden for those who are trapped in this.
First and foremost. I acknowledge that Russ Dizdar was a man truly committed to fight evil and thank God for his service as a lawman and for his stand against the evils of this world and for exposing the darkness. Russ Dizdar passed away suddenly at the age of 65. Some reports say he died in a car accident. Other reports say COVID complications. Whatever the cause the Christian circles are in two camps. Those who praise him as a great man of God and Spiritual Giant and those like me who admit he did great social works for noble causes but was seriously lacking in spiritual matters and leading his flock astray with errant doctrine.
I opine that the root problem of Russ Dizdar’s errant teaching is presented here in this Blog as well as the previous Blog in Part 1. In this Blog I hereby affirm in the witness of other observers and the preponderance of evidence compiled with hours of listening to his Podcasts and Videos and matching same with the King James Bible as well as other Bible based scholars the following: Russ was not striving lawfully by his unbiblical teaching as witnessed by the hours of videos and Podcasts I’ve listened to, and the witnesses of his followers comments I present below and their beliefs which are contrary to sound biblical doctrine. Most egregious is the issue of preaching a mixed Gospel which is the false Gospel of the Kingdom vs the Gospel of Grace. This includes a strong connection in words and deeds that mirror the New Apostolic Reformation; The incorrect Dispensation of the Age of Grace, and finally all the associated false doctrines to include Dominion Theology and Ecumenism associated with Kingdom Building and the belief the Church must endure the Tribulation and not look the blessed hope of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture.
See details below, but most evident is the New Apostolic Reformation practices and rhetoric by him and his followers. Detailed associated links are also included in the Additional Notes below.
I am simply reporting a personal observation looking at the fruit of his ministry. I am not judging his heart or his ultimate spiritual condition. God Forbid! Only God truly knows Russ Dizdar and his ultimate destination. I am only reporting for a study in Lessons Learned. Please read further to understand my point.
Although accused differently by my first Blog, this Blog is not in any way attacking the great things Russ Dizdar stood for and the work he did for society to expose evils and fight against it. I am not attacking his character. God Forbid!
However, after I posted my Blog and Video of my Blog with all of the detailed references of why I said what I said and supported each comment with substantial scripture evidence, nevertheless I received a lot of very hateful comments attacking me for simply presenting concerns that the Lord has placed on my heart to share.
“Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?”
King James Version (KJV)
I came out of the teaching that Russ Dizdar taught. Comment after comment accused me of attacking Russ and not even knowing what he truly stood for. When I asked them IF they had in fact read, only one person admitted that they had not read what I had posted to support my Blog. See Detailed Links in Notes below the Comments.
“Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?”
King James Version (KJV)
I plead with the reader to please read the Blog links in notes below that show that I am a born-again Christian who has attended church buildings all over the world and I spent over 50 years of going to church to know that today’s BRICK AND MORTAR 501C3 building operations called churches run by apostate trained CEOs called Pastors are not biblical other than they are the LAODICEAN CHURCH.
Reason this Blog is written:
In my years in the U.S. Submarine service, we lived and breathed this concept:
“Lessons Learned from the errors of others”
This concept was ingrained with the Submarine Service AXIOM:
Every Regulation is written in someone else’s Blood
Note for detail: In the early morning hours I was more than eager to come off my midwatch. I was cold, hungry, exhausted and really had to go to the bathroom in the worst way. Our submarine was pounding and heaving mercilessly in the North Sea as we were ascending from periscope depth in our procedure to surface. As the Diving Officer I had completed my check list and was painfully watching the Chief of the Watch Standing at the Ballast Control Panel with his stopwatch. I snapped, “For God’s sake we’re on the surface. The Low-Pressure Blower back pressure is set at prescribed limits delta plus + atmospheric psig. Let’s get the watch turned over.”
The second I uttered those words – out of nowhere in the red lighting – the Captain appeared and stood next to me as I squirmed trying not to pee on myself. His face was stern and sent shivers down my spine. His steeled eyes glared at me, ghost like, and this is all he said, “You know why we have the extra procedure to allow the extra time for the low-pressure blow, EVEN THOUGH we seem to be on the surface? Back in 1960 (something) The USS K…….. was on the surface or so they thought, The OOD ordered the hatch open and they took in sea water because in actuality they were still partially submerged.
THAT’S WHY WE HAVE THIS REGULATION….
REMEMBER EVERY RULE IS WRITTEN IN SOMEONE ELSE’S BLOOD!
Now Compare the above Physical Reality with The Spiritual World
As in the natural world of laws – The Apostle Paul teaches the Spiritual reason for examples and studying the lives of those who have gone before us who were Christian and served the Lord. Read 1 Corinthians 10 KJV & 1 Corinthians 11:27-32 KJV carefully. We have the lives of others for our example to teach us and to learn by. Read the entire chapter 10 in 1 Corinthians to gain a very somber understanding and then turn to 1 Corinthians 11:23 – 32 KJV and read it carefully and prayerfully. Amen!
It was reported by a few of my readers that Russ Dizdar passed away suddenly. One of my readers posted a very compelling piece about how God is clearing house with those who are in leadership and are not in accordance with God’s word. I have posted comments below in the Notes along with others. I will add that I personally witnessed a New Apostolic Charismatic Leader during my attendance at the Azusa Street Revival in 2006 at the Los Angeles California Convention Center. This man was killed in an airplane accident soon after.
The actual cause of death is not available, some write it was Covid and Russ was an antiVaxer, some say a car accident. I don’t care to dwell on the cause. This is truly not the purpose of this Blog to dwell on the cause.
However, If we read 1 Corinthians Chapter 10 KJV and realize we have church history and spiritual leaders as our example in both life deeds and death. Yes there are issues as sin unto death. Read 1 John 5:16 and Romans 7:13 KJV; 1 Corinthians Chapter 10 KJV; 1 Corinthians 11:23-32 KJV.
The other issue offered by the followers of Dizdar is that God brought his servant home early because he had finished his mission.
Whatever the reason, we’re not in the position to judge but only look at this entire thing as lessons learned and to be observed in accordance with 1 Corinthians Chapter 10 and 11:23-32 KJV. And oh by the way read The Book of Exodus and the Major Prophets. God is continually showing example after example and warnings after warnings, so the people DO NOT Repeat error.
I was compelled to write this second part of this Blog after reading the comments – primarily the hateful comments of the Russ Dizdar followers where I found shocking parallels to the same stumbling block of the Messianic Jews and the Evangelical Kingdom Builders who * do NOT understand Dispensational truth / Rightly dividing the Word of God * do not understand that the Apostolic Age has ended (for Evangelicals) and for Jews elements of custom, culture and adherence to the law and in a sense the Jewish Apostles taken out of the context of the church – to wit after the council at Jerusalem and the Gospel of Grace there was not requirement to have anything Jewish whatsoever to be a Christian and Paul taught there is neither Jew or Gentile but we are all one in the body of Christ Galatians 3:28 KJV. In essence: MIXING UP THE GOSPEL OF GRACE with The GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM. Also see some of the comments from readers who followed Russ Dizdar to see how they do not understand these issues.
By my Bible evidence of the hours of podcasts and videos I watched subsequent to my first Blog post on Russ Dizdar in Part 1; Not only was Russ Dizdar preaching another Gospel and leading his flock to the Tribulation – BUT HE HAD ALSO NOT EXHIBITED THE PRACTICE OR TEACING OF A MAN OF GOD WHO WAS STRIVING LAWFULLY 2 Timothy Chapter 2:8 KJV
Specifically, according to the Gospel of GRACE given by Paul and under the authority of verse 8 OF 2 Timothy Chapter 2 of the KJV. Read how seriously Paul takes anyone who is preaching another Gospel in Galatians 1:8,9 KJV.
Read the entire Chapter of 2 Timothy Chapter 2 and see the connection with Dispensations which Russ did not teach or abide by in his teaching. See the Gospel of Grace given and taught by Paul which is far away from the Gospel of the Kingdom that Russ used. And ultimately See how the Kingdom Gospel goes hand and hand with the Apostolic Age and Anointing given to the Apostles to Go out and BAPTISE (AS PART OF SALVATION);HEAL THE SICK, HANDLE SERPENTS, CAST OUT DEMONS; TAKE UP SERPENTS; DRINK POISON; LAY HANDSON SICK AND THEY SHALL RECOVER Mark 16:15-18 KJV. Read what God thinks of those who falsely take on Apostolic anointing REVELATION 2:2 KJV
Watch the YouTube Videos about the Snake Handlers of West Virginia. They preach and teach the Apostolic Anointing of Mark 16:15-18 KJV. Watch where the Pastor gets bitten by an angry rattlesnake twirling around his neck. With blood all over his starched blue shirt he keeps saying he has faith and will die for God to prove his faith. Thankfully one of his flock took him out and to the emergency room. And by the way the dude was also drinking a ball jar of supposed poison… This is serious people.
Read my comments below. I personally attended faith healing services and never could figure out why I’d never really see actual miracles the charlatan frauds claimed. Do your own research.
The preaching and practice of the Apostolic Anointing acts of the Kingdom Gospel is the forensic trademark of the NEW APOSTOLIC REFORMATION. I implore the reader to digest the mountain of evidence in my Bethel Church and Bill Johnson and the NAR MOVEMENT. See additional notes below.
Please see notes where I dispute and prove that the perverted Bible translations falsely claim Mark 16 were not in the early manuscripts but somehow added. This is a lie from hell. Read the forensic proof in Dr. Grady’s final authority: excerpt:
Mark Chapter 16 verses 15 – 18 because they were not derived from the oldest manuscripts, as reported and lied by Geisler and Nix the demons who were caught in their lies when in fact the truth is an exposed in Final Authority pages 42 and 43 as described by God’s servant Dean Burgon were in fact the very perverted manuscripts of the CODEX Vanticanus and Sinaiticus which were used by the Cambridge heretics Hort and Wescott to produce today’s modern bible translations which I’m sure you use.
And what is so amazing and profound – I REALIZED BY GOD’S GRACE
The root error of Russ Dizdar’s ministry SPIRITUALLY AND BIBLICALLY SPEAKING
Russ – according to God’s word and by the evidence of his teachings and the comments of his devout followers who posted comments Russ Dizdar was striving unlawfully by taking the wrong doctrine and dispensation in his teachings.
This is why I’m writing this Blog: Not to attack Russ, but to teach Christians by what LESSONS ARE LEARNED HERE and taking the Word of God and compare it to see if those who were not in accordance with God’s word, to see scripture and learn from their error.
Note: Any reader who attacks me for using Russ Dizdar as an example for the Church would be the same as people attacking Paul for using the lives of their forefathers in 1 Corinthians 10 KJV. Read it for yourself. Thank carefully dear reader before jumping into this without knowledge.
Note: Here I need to stop and read with you 1 Corinthians 11:27-32 KJV: The seriousness of eating the bread and drinking the cup UNWORTHILY… Compare to 1 Corinthians Chapter 10 KJV.
What is Striving Lawfully?
STRIVING LAWFULLY MEANS WORKING WITH THE CORRECT GOSPEL
Yes, rightly dividing the truth is Essential doctrine. I define essential as being an effective and LAWFUL Ambassador for Jesus Christ in being a good Soldier for Jesus Christ in FIGHTING THE GOOD FIGHT and contending for the Faith. Amen! Believing in Dispensations IS NOT a salvation issue – meaning if you don’t believe in Dispensations you are going to hell – HOWEVER… it is so closely INTERTWINED with salvation which is at the very heart of THE GOSPEL.
Note: It is noteworthy that the majority of so-called Christians to do not believe in or teach against Dispensational truth are usually preaching and teaching a FALSE GOSPEL from other Dispensations like the KINGDOM Dispensation that was in effect during the ministry of Jesus Christ on earth and which is preached throughout the gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. People who believe the Gospels of the KINGDOM apply to this church age of Grace mix in works-based salvation with grace. Read carefully this Blog and see the chart comparing works of the Kingdom Gospel of the KINGDOM Dispensation with the AGE OF GRACE Dispensation which we are living in currently.
Gospel of the Kingdom vs. Gospel of the Grace of God
Salvation is the Gospel given to Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV. Confirmed throughout the Pauline Epistles to wit: 2 Timothy 2:8 KJV. To preach any other Gospel is to be accursed by God – Galatians 1:8,9 KJV.
To understand the proof and need of Dispensations in the Bible Read 2 Timothy 2:3-15 KJV.
If you don’t know what Dispensations are in the Bible, please read links in notes regarding Dispensation.
AN ESSENTIAL KEY LESSON for every Christian
KNOWING HOW TO STRIVE LAWFULLY
See notes below for further detail on Striving Lawfully
2 Timothy 2:5 KJV
King James Version
2 Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
2 And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.
3 Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.
4 No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
5 And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.
6 The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.
7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.
8 Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:
9 Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.
10 Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.
11 It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:
12 If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
14 Of these things put them in remembrance, charging them before the Lord that they strive not about words to no profit, but to the subverting of the hearers.
15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
To strive unlawfully for lawful things is to be an ungenerated OR SEVERELY SOULICAL person trying to do good works for good causes without the authority of God’s rightly divided Word. See notes below on Rightly divided word of God and its meaning regarding LAWFUL STRIFE.
To strive lawfully for unlawful things is a saved person walking in GRACE with the Rightly divided word of Truth in the right Dispensation who is doing works without properly studying the applicable scripture. I.E. NOT DOING THEIR PROPER HOMEWORK.
in other words: “A carnal or soulical Christian who is lazy and NOT well studied and NOT a good workman approved unto God. 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
and to strive lawfully: Living Galatians 2:20 KJV Romans 8:2 KJV
GRACE vs WORKS
Works is doing anything without GRACE which is only in APPLICATION OF the scripture of the Dispensation of GRACE
To strive lawfully we must conduct all our business by the use and application of doctrine which is God’s Word Rightly Divided. * 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV –
Please take the time to read 2 Timothy Chapter 2 in its entirety to gain a proper overview in context.
* Dispensation = The word of God is divided in different times addressing different people for different purposes.

HERE ARE READER COMMENTS FROM FOLLOWERS OF RUSS DIZDAR THAT PROVIDE VALUABLE INSIGHT: PLEASE ALSO SEE MY COMMENTS TO THE COMMENTS
Comment from Mitchell:
The gospel is the gospel of the kingdom!
Jesus is going to return and set up the kingdom of God ON THE EARTH! God’s government ON THE EARTH! Believers will rule the nations with Jesus! The Messiah died for his people! God resurrected the Messiah! The Messiah will resurrect his people at his coming! They will rule the nations! The destiny of the Messiah and his people is to be ON THE EARTH! The renewed restored earth! God also dwelling with them! Rev 21
14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.
Jesus said the Father is the only true God!
3 And this is eternal life, that they know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.
Please watch my video I just posted about confusing the KINGDOM GOSPEL with the GOSPEL of GRACE. So many confuse this. We are NOT in the Dispensation of the KINGDOM. If this were the case, you’d better get to work and fall into line with Matthew 5:29 and 30 …. Here’s a great study on why we can not mix these 2 dispensations:
They are the same thing
The gospel of God, the gospel of grace, the gospel of Jesus, the gospel of the kingdom
It’s the same thing
24 But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may accomplish my course and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. 25 And now, behold, I know that all you among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom will see my face no more.
—>to testify to the gospel of the grace of God. 25 And now, behold, I know that all you among whom I have gone preaching the kingdom
The gospel of the grace of God is the gospel of the kingdom
Thank you for your comment
Sir, I agree with you that Acts 20:24 is the continued scripture witness of Paul’s ministry to Preach The GOSPEL OF GRACE which perfectly harmonizes in solid hermeneutics with 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV and 2 Timothy 2:8 KJV As divinely appointed to him by Jesus Christ personally for the Dispensation of GRACE aka The Church Age.
This is NOT the Dispensation of the Kingdom or the Gospel of the KINGDOM that was in effect during the time of Jesus’ ministry on earth and the appointment of the Apostles. They are not the same and are in fact diametrically opposed. This is what causes so many problems and violates 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV. Proper Dispensations are critical.
What Paul is clearly saying in Acts 20:25 KJV ” preaching The Kingdom of God “- Is the SPIRITUAL KINGDOM that IS IN EXISTENCE in the unseen Spiritual World of the Third Heaven. Amen! Here are the scriptures that harmonize with Acts 20:25 KJV: Colossians 1:13-14 KJV; Romans 14:7KJV; Ephesians Chapter 1 KJV and specifically pertaining Ephesians 1:15-21 KJV; 1 Timothy 6:13-16 KJV; 1 Corinthians 15:50 KJV etc.
To prove this please try to harmonize what John Preached when he announced The Dispensation of the Kingdom in which Jesus Christ was literally going to Establish the Kingdom of Heaven (The physical kingdom of God and restore Israel) but Israel rejected their King and the Kingdom offer was pulled. Therefore, the need to transition into the Church Age to bring in the Gentiles into Abraham (grace).
Here is what John the Baptist preached: REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS AT HAND….Matthew 3:2 KJV – Isaiah 40:3 KJV.

Highlighted Comment from STARZSHINE614
So you pick a fight with a warrior in Christ against SRA and human trafficking because you disagree with his view on the rapture? for real? a self proclaimed brother in Christ picks a fight with a man who is dead and cannot defend himself, you a self proclaimed theology expert? Where are you in your knowledge of the scripture that says you must prove your case by two or three witnesses. You watch one video and read one book (so you say) and that makes you an expert on Russ Dizdar’s beliefs about Christ? And then you go on to defame his legacy because you disagree with what you believe he believes, by drawing conclusions but never knowing him? What kind of evil are you? Maybe you just forgot the following scriptures…
38And John answered him, saying, Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he followeth not us: and we forbad him, because he followeth not us. 39But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name, that can lightly speak evil of me. 40For he that is not against us is on our part. 41For whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in my name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.
Temptations and Trespasses
(Matthew 18:7-9; Luke 17:1-4)
42And whosoever shall offend one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea. 43And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 44Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 45And if thy foot offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter halt into life, than having two feet to be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched: 46Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched. 47And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out: it is better for thee to enter into the kingdom of God with one eye, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire: 48Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.
49For every one shall be salted with fire, and every sacrifice shall be salted with salt. 50Salt is good: but if the salt have lost his saltness, wherewith will ye season it? Have salt in yourselves, and have peace one with another.
You sir, cannot use an argument that the scripture is not talking about doctrine…because Jesus was not about doctrine, but the doers of the word. Russ was an exorcist and cast out devils from those who had SRA demons, he always gave the glory to God and understood the power of the the blood of Jesus. And you seek to “offend one of these little ones that believe in me…” I think you should repent before your millstone becomes the weight you cannot bear.. when you do a fraction of what Russ Dizdar has done for the kingdom of heaven you might have room to talk. You are a prideful man and you eat your sour grapes….sad man…may God have mercy on your soul.
STARZSHINE614: Your comment is most carefully read by me. I have studied your words, prayed and read and now it’s time to post your comment as an eternal witness and testimony for you OR against you. Screenshot made – certainly for the record in the event you as your kind often do is delete reprehensible comments after being exposed by THE TRUTH.
I pray and ask My Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ that your words stand eternal for that day which most assuredly comes here soon when you will EITHER stand at the BEMA Judgment or later at the GREAT WHITE THRONE Judgment.
If you do end up at the BEMA SEAT May your words written in this comment be added to either your honor and crown – OR a loss burning works otherwise attributed in the name of Jesus. IF – however – your misguided lost soul ends up at the GWTJ may your misguided words be added to your condemnation which will no doubt be many. God will judge in the end. Not I, Sir! But God will judge your eternal soul.
Now, I will respond with my words. I pray and ask My Heavenly Father in the name of Jesus Christ that my words also stand as an eternal witness and testimony against you. Amen!
You claim that I claim to have read Russ’ book. I never claimed that which proves you either do not read what I stated or you make things up. But let’s get into the meat of this.
You and your kind (meaning your same soul that expresses the same spirit in teaching and proclaiming falsehoods with unmerited, misguided APOSTOLIC APPOINTMENT scriptures that is not given to this CHURCH AGE) are called out by your own commission of Apostleship in this age – Revelation 2:2 KJV.
Not to mention Galatians 1:8,9 KJV KINGDOM GOSPEL vs GOSPEL OF GRACE among many which in reality to claim a love for Jesus Christ when Jesus tells us His Children hear his voice and follow him and not the voice of another John Chapter 10 KJV – I question who you’re listening to and what say ye to 1 Corinthians 16:22 KJV? So let’s add this. regarding those who take upon themselves the anointing of the apostolic appointment in commission of what was given directly to the Apostles in Matthew 10:8 KJV AND Mark 16:15-18 KJV. You also fit perfectly with John 8:42-47 KJV as the Pharisees who just couldn’t see the TRUTH even though it was staring them right in the face.
How incredibly and most amazingly shockingly ironic that you chose the book of Mark as a witness and testimony against me. God truly has a sense of humor. In your case just stop a second and read Psalm Chapter 2 KJV. How absurd you’d liken Russ D to a little child running around being a distraction. Wow! Is that prophetic or what? Perhaps Freudian? … I got to really think about this one. A matter for a later time, perhaps. You say Jesus Christ was not about doctrine? Wow! I have both the Old Testament and New Testament to bury your idiotic misguded, irrational statement. Back on track:
I also shall use Mark to bring before you and against you in my witness and testimony. Your use of Mark alone mocks you and brings you to open shame along with and harmonizes with Revelation 2:2 KJV. Why didn’t you use Mark 16:15-18 KJV? Oh let me help. The reason you do not quote the mother of all APOSTOLIC appointment verses is because you know it exposes you just like the snake handlers, the poison drinkers, and miracle healers. Have you ever been to a Benny Hinn service and watched him make cripples walk again? I have except it didn’t quite work out the way you see it on TV.
When you get some time check out those YOUTUBE Videos on modern day snake handlers in West Virginia who profess and quote Mark Apostolic anointing to go do what Jesus Commanded them to do. Just search on Youtube… You gotta watch. It’s a gritty truth in your face of hard core bible believing Christians who have verses from MARK printed in big letters behind the pulpit. And man are they praying hard. One woman at the organ is even singing We have the anointing (referring to what the preacher man was preaching about how the same power of God that was on the apostles was ON them also. By the way the dude had a flame like you used in chemistry class roasting his hand while he was preaching. Make yourself watch the YouTube video of that preacher man who get nailed a couple times by that angry rattlesnake who got tired of being twirled around in circles while Preacher man quoted Mark scripture. After the snake nailed him he kept preachin saying he had the faith and God would prove his faith in what is WRITTEN IN SCRIPTURE. Thankfully for him – one of his loyal flock hauled him off to the emergency room.
Let’s move on, shall we?
You know the verses like Mark 16:15-18 KJV and Matthew 5 mock you as a witness to you proclaiming the false Gospel of the KINGDOM and NOT the GRACE we now have. You claim by your words with scripture that we are still under the same Apostolic Age and have this Commission. Yes you certainly stand naked before Revelation 2:2 KJV as a liar. Amen!
Additionally, your stupidity in using Matthew 18 and Luke 17 against me. It’s not funny but actually it is in a sense because before my very eyes I see the scripture of COME TO LIGHT ON YOU:
Romans 1:21, 22 KJV…
This is exactly what causes non believers to mock Christians and why false or soulical christians as yourself are so confused and are blind and lead the blind behind you. Of course, Blind guides like you will have to answer to God. Do you know what Matthew 18 and Luke 17 are talking about? It has NOTHING TO DO WITH THE CHURCH! Are you really that lost? Are you a first year Seminary student who is being fed leaven? I hope you’re not some Preacher with a flock blindly following you. God Forbid!
I suggest you read my links regarding this subject. What’s being discussed in Matthew 18 and Luke 17 overall is THE DAVIDIC KINGDOM yes including parts of the Tribulation – Time of Jacob’s Trouble and the following 2nd Advent and the Millennial Kingdom. If you’d like to read on Amazon the amazing works of Clarence Larkin along with many other works with the proper teaching in my Blog and links that prove these scriptures are referring to THE KINGDOM … THE DAVIDIC KINGDOM that will come in The Millennial Kingdom but since you and Russ and all your kind do not believe program of a Pre Tribulation Rapture – The Time of Jacob’s Trouble and the following dispensations, how on earth could you understand what I was writing in my Blog and more PROOF YOU DID NOT READ MY WORK. One of the comments had the silly audacity to tell me that the Amillennial views that Russ had were the same as the PreMillennial in most parts or words to that effect.
It is here I pause STARZSHINE614 and tell you that you stand before God for declaring judgement on me – a child of God in this dispensation of Grace. I am judged by your False application of scriptures that condemn my rule with Christ in the DAVIDIC KINGDOM. You are both a Liar and a Fraud. I will by God’s great grace return as the Saints with Jesus Christ when he returns to earth in the 2nd Advent following the Pretribulation Rapture after the completion of Jacob’s Trouble also known as The Tribulation. I pray you be witness to this AMEN! MARANATHA! Thank you, Lord Jesus Christ! To Whom be the glory forever Amen!

While you’re cherry picking completely NON-APPLICABLE Scripture – in full display of your love for the gospels to support your misguided Apostolic Appointment and Dispensation of the KINGDOM – You might want to cut off your right hand and take out your eye just like Jesus told you clearly in Matthew 5:29 and 30 KJV. Don’t tell me these verses don’t apply to you and yours but Mark 9 does. Okay for another point of your hypocrisy. But let’s move on. But before moving on, Let’s go do some Mosaic Law. Did you sacrifice your pet lamb this morning? Did you work on the Sabbath? Oh we’re not under the Law but we’re under the KINGDOM. Do you see the problem here?
I would be remiss if I forgot to mention that I knew a dude who I listened to in person in Los Angeles, California at the Convention Center during the Azusa Street Revival back in 2006 with all the NAR junkies like me before Jesus Christ called me out into his marvelous light. I bought this dude’s book and was rather surprised and sad to find out he later died in a plane crash on his way back to his island paradise mansion he bought from fleecing people. This dude claimed he had the power of anointing in the GOSPEL of the KINGDOM using your scriptures who claimed he had the Apostolic Anointing, and he didn’t make it back to the island mansion hangout because his plane crashed. Sin unto death? Another topic for another day. Let’s move on shall we?
By the way NAR stands for New Apostolic Reformation. I have tons of material to discuss NAR and The Apostolic Reformation and Dispensations and Eschatology and WHY Eschatology is so important in the Mission of today’s church and even on understanding the GOSPEL of this age as compared to the many false gospels especially using the KINGDOM Gospel for this age and how it really not only confuses the new believer and others who are not saved, but worse it counters the mission God has for our age. I know you never read my detailed study with references and first-hand accounts regarding BETHEL church and Bill Johnson the big daddy of the NAR Movement.
ALL of this information is in my Blog and associated LINKS BUT SINCE YOU failed to read, I must give you some excerpts here and there. You as all these non-bible reading low informed people who attack me personally for attacking Russ without reading precisely what I write and why I say what I say is beyond preposterous. Even some who appear to study my points still ask questions that really show they haven’t read what I write.
Page 2 to STARZSHINE614
On to the true issue here: On the same page: Mark 16:15-18 KJV is your verse you APOSTOLIC REFORMER!
Or perhaps you will tell me like the other reprobates that you don’t read Mark Chapter 16 verses 15 – 18 because they were not derived from the oldest manuscripts, as reported and lied by Geisler and Nix the demons who were caught in their lies when in fact the truth is an exposed in Final Authority pages 42 and 43 as described by God’s servant Dean Burgon were in fact the very perverted manuscripts of the CODEX Vanticanus and Sinaiticus which were used by the Cambridge heretics Hort and Wescott to produce today’s modern bible translations which I’m sure you use.
Yes, Mark 16:15-18 tells us that Jesus commands You and your falsely anointed apostles to go out and perform signs and wonders like miracles, healings, handle poisonous snakes, drink poison, and even cast out demons. All the Apostles did MULTIPLE signs and wonders, not just one. Acts Chapter 2 clearly tells us why God allowed this time to use the Apostles in signs and wonders as the new Dispensation of the Age of Grace was beginning and the KINGDOM Dispensation was transitioning out.
Are you getting the idea regarding the Apostolic Age and that we DO NOT have these signs and wonders in this age – you pathetic Cretan ? (See Titus 1 KJV Yes The word meaning and function of Cretan is your full title.) I certainly find numerous faults in both your use of scriptures – especially in their application – most egregious on your account is 1. Wrong Dispensation. 2. The End of The Apostolic Age 3. Accusing me of both of which I am blood bought, born again in this age of Grace and have by God’s grace rightly divided the word of truth. Had you truly read my work of which I question Russ, You’d know of which I speak and why I speak what I did. It is a very very sad fact that you have obviously NOT read or understand the heavy issues I address that directly address the absurdity of the scriptures you quote and their pertinent application. You’ve built the perfect STRAWMAN argument. You’re obviously skilled at this as are all false teachers in use of the STRAWMAN while avoiding the truth. Here’s STARZ STRAWMAN: Woe be to the man who condemned a great man of God! When in reality you in your ignorance have declared yourself guilty of supporting the belief in the KINGDOM GOSPEL as opposed GOSPEL OF GRACE by rightly dividing the word of truth. Read 2 Timothy 2:15 KJV. Read the seriousness of Galatians 1:8,9 KJV. How are you going to harmonize 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 KJV with your KINGDOM GOSPEL messages in the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.
You, IF you are saved – knowing only God can judge your heart – you will have to answer for not being a good workman by rightly dividing the word of truth. I won’t bother you with the other details of what you may be facing at the GWTJ. You’re not only a believer in the self-appointed action of a modern day – Church Age Apostle, you promote it and facilitate it and viciously attack one who questions these actions with the word of God rightly divided.
In conclusion: For you directly: STARZSHINE614. Jesus Christ told the Pharisees of which you truly stand in JOHN 8:42-46 KJV. The reason you do NOT understand what I’m saying is because the TRUTH is NOT IN YOU. Read further in John Chapter 8 verses 42 – 46 KJV if you wish to really understand the profound tragedy of your words. I have screen shot your comment in the event you wake up and decide to erase.
While listening to this there were a number of things that became blatantly clear that this was not an accurate representation, which has resulted in me having to put together this response. Based on what you said, I believe that there are a number things where you are either intentionally misrepresenting or actually have no idea as to what something is. It is also possible that it is a combination of both. You stated that you listed to one podcast and read though Russ Dizdar’s book, “The Black Awakening”, and with that you deduced that he was an amillennialist. How???
Amillennialism believes that we are currently in the millennial reign, that his kingdom has already been established and that the first resurrection was spiritual, just to name a few. That is not at all what Russ believes in, at all. If anything one would call Russ a pre-millennial / post-tribulation / pre-wrath as to when he believes that the rapture of the church will take place. That the tribulation saints described in Revelation are members of the church and not those who suddenly decided to give their lives to Christ after watching the “church” fly away as the pre-millennial / pre-tribulation camp believes. This does not make him not a Christian just because he doesn’t see end times eschatology the same way as you. In fact, it is only the comfy Christian of the west that believes in a pre-tribulation rapture, a doctrine that could only survive in a society where Christians have not been persecuted. I do not believe that the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine is supported scripturally and is refuted by Jesus’s teaching in Matthew 24, Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4 and 2 Thessalonians 2 when put into proper context. Add in the writings of the early church fathers and church history and one finds that this doctrine did not come about until the 19th century. In my personal opinion the pre-tribulation doctrine tarnishes the reputation of God and has made the church lazy and spiritually anemic. We can disagree about the timing of the rapture and still be brothers in Christ, as it is a not a gospel issue.
Secondly you stated that Russ did not share the Gospel. You may have found one of the few podcasts where he didn’t share the Gospel. Having had listened to dozens of his podcasts, his dynamic discipleship class, spiritual warfare class (where sharing the Gospel is listed as part of spiritual warfare), and lectures I can say with certainty that he shares the Gospel a lot. I actually cannot think of a single series of teachings where he doesn’t repeatedly share the Gospel. I would actually recommend listening to more than just one episode before stating something as “fact”.
Thirdly, Jesus told us that we were to engage against the enemy, as did Paul. Who do you thing the principalities and spiritual rulers were that Paul referred to? Why would Jesus tell us to cast out demons, to do deliverance? Russ spoke about praying against the workings of evil, asking God for insight as to how to handle a situation, etc. Perhaps if you had listened to more than just one thing you may have gotten a clearer picture as to who he was. Perhaps had you spoke to Craig you wouldn’t have publicly embarrassed yourself with false accusations against a man who dedicated his life to sharing the Gospel and setting people free from SRA, human trafficking and worked with law enforcement to identify occult rituals taking place in their city.
Proverbs tells us that we should fully hear a matter out, or perhaps fully investigate something in this case, before answering something. Proverbs 18:13 He that answereth a matter before he heareth it, it is folly and shame unto him.
I do have one last question. You said that you were a surface warfare officer in the Navy, so how did you spend a lot of time with subs? Having been in the Navy myself, I know that those 2 lines are completely different from one another and that SWO’s do not spend much time with bubbleheads.
My response to Carter S. Who was asking some good questions and challenging my navy service” He had obviously not read my links or Blog but later came back and asked for additional information and apologized for speaking out of turn regarding my service.
Carter S Thank You Sir, apology accepted about the Navy service.
Thank you for asking for Blog and Links. Here is the Blog link discussing this video.
Please note there are over 20 plus links that reference the details of terms like DISPENSATION. STRIVING LAWFULLY, (I can’t stress enough the importance of LAWFUL STRIFE); SALVATION, BIBLE TRANSLATIONS, PREMILLENNIAL ESCHATOLOGY, REAL GOSPEL: I.E. Not the Gospel of KINGDOM or the many many false gospels out there; UNDERSTANDING OUR MISSION IN THIS WORLD; DOMINION THEOLOGY / ECUMENISM etc. etc. Please understand that in each of these major areas Russ Dizdar was not only deficient but rather was teaching contrary to what we are given in this AGE OF GRACE. He was in fact Striving UNLAWFULLY according to the scriptures and Gospel of GRACE given to Paul. In all aspects I must say. The most glaring, scary shocking evidence today is the New Apostolic Reformation and if you read that comment I got from STARZSHINES614 you see their scripture references are straight out of the KINGDOM DISPENSATION and this will get people in serious trouble even to sin unto death. Please read my heart felt VERY SERIOUS COMMENT I wrote him. If you don’t believe me – let’s take a field trip to West Virginia and handle snakes and drink poison. They do it and the whole time preach and teach the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM in part Mark 16:15-18 KJV. I sat and bought books and followed a KINGDOM NOW DOMINION THEOLOGY GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM Preacher and a short time after he called upon God to bring him the anointing given in the Gospels MATTHEW MARK LUKE JOHN he died. Read the comment one of my deeply spiritual women wrote me regarding the seriousness of playing with fire in this apostolic anointing.
I deeply respect your comment because you are proving yourself in word and deed that you are going to thoroughly study this and then speak on this matter. I pray you’re sincere and not attempting something beyond that. God will judge in the end. Please Just take a moment to read some of the comments that are posted who do not address what I’ve written by objective comment with evidence, i.e., scripture. But instead use subjective personal attacks without defending themselves with scripture. For those who attempt scripture, we find they’re striving unlawfully with scripture that proves them as reprobate in the faith; TITUS 1:16 KJV,. My entire study is about THE BIBLICAL TRUTH regarding this man Russ Dizdar and his ministry. Remember what God told poor ole JOB? “Who is this that darkens counsel with words eWITHOUT knowledge? JOB :2 KJV. Your comment is important to me because you’re obviously thinking and probing for the truth in this matter. We are commanded to be Good Bereans and search with what we hear and read and match it against scripture. Scripture that is Rightly Divided (2 Timothy 2: 15 KJV so that we may strive LAWFULLY 2 Timothy 2:5 KJV) as a good Berean and Thank you for being a man – proving yourself a spiritual man in both word and deed. Humbling to be honest to see someone of your character these days. I can’t express adequately how much your words have reached my heart. Thank you again. And I almost forgot to tell you – I watched your lengthy video about Russ’ preaching at Calvary Chapel. It was even more SOLID evidence that supported my video and I pray for God’s grace to help me continue.
Comment from about the seriousness of not following God’s direction
I’ve warred with the Devil in the spiritual many times. Without the Holy Spirit … People will not stand against the Devil. Sadly Russ was inaccurate in his warfare teachings and was not spiritually discerned. Yeshua did not teach him. He played with fire and was removed. God allowed it The Devil is not to be communicated with….unless it is with scripture. There will be more dropping like flies from the church. They were playing church not realizing that the Devil is very real. Abba is paving the way for the two witnesses arrival. The fakers will not be able to contend with the two anointed. They should stop now….or they will be stopped with their b s. Teachings.
These 501c3 brick and mortar buildings (and even those run under private or limited liability corp) run by apostate trained CEOs called pastors are not BIBLICAL. They are literally making Merchandise of you and your children and your children’s heritage. They are cursed by God under both Galatians 1:8,9 and 2 Peter 2:3… In fact 2 Peter 2:3, literally says these false teachers through feigned (study the word feigned: invented. fake. counterfeit. deception. fictitious. ) words make merchandise of you…
I’ve completed an 800 page Ebook containing over a thousand references, several thousand pages of source documentation titled: ” I don’t go to church.

I will email you a copy for free. Email me your request to email@example.com.
This church-going issue has now become my focus. I’m a retired US naval officer, and finished a career in consulting. and recently retired from teaching High school as a licensed teacher. I also spent years living in other countries, including over 6 yrs in Vietnam sharing Jesus with the Vietnamese people.
