"Be Not Dismayed At The Times"
A Letter of Encouragement, and Faith to Endure Unto The End
By Apostle Dennis G. Smith
Written in 1992

     To all the Saints of God throughout the Earth.

     Grace and Peace be unto you in the name of the Lord God almighty Jesus Christ.

     I am Apostle Dennis Smith a called and chosen faithful witness and Prophet of God almighty.  I  love all of you with all my heart, and I pray that I may soon be able to greet you all personally.

     As I and the Ministers of Jesus Christ await to see you, I hope and pray that you never forget your first love Lord Jesus Christ.

     It is so easy to be caught up in controversy that you become blinded to the truth of God.

     Let not yourself be caught up in fear for the fearful and unbelieving shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

"But the fearful and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death." Revelations 21:8

     Also be not dismayed when you see so-called pillars of the church fall from their grace.  I certify before you, I shall not yield for one hour from the word of God.  God does not respect persons nor positions.

"And that because of false brethen unawares brought in, who came in privily to spy out our liberty which we have in Christ Jesus, that they might bring us into bondage."

Galatians 2:6

Be not dismayed that there are false prophets and false teachers among you, and false brothers and sisters, for this is prophecy fulfilled.  It is written that false prophets and false teachers would come, and shall be among the church.

Matthew 24:24

"But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that brought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction." 
II Peter 2:1

"And many shall follow their pernicious ways by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of."
 II Peter 2:2

"And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgement now of along time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not."
II Peter 2:3

"But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;"
II Peter 2:12

"And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you." 
II Peter 2:

"For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning."
II Peter 2:20

"For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them."

"They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you think that he doeth God service."

     Do not believe the voice of evil, which is spoken by some, that say God would not let the wrong man get up there,  remember God had a traitor with him who was an "Apostle," Judas Iscariot.

John 6:70

"He spake of Judas Iscariot the son of Simon: for he it was that should betray him, being one one of the twelve."

"But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ." 
II Corinthians 11:3

"For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him."

"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."
Galatians 1:8

"As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.
Galatians 1:9

     There are saints committing fornication, adultery; saying as long as my heart is right, telling other saints not to speak to each other,  calling saints reprobates who do not clap their hands at the revilings of Omega and Esau, saying that saints have the wrong spirit if they say they are waiting on the Lord, telling husbands and wives to separate which is a blatant violation of the commandment of God, telling children not to speak to parents and parents not to speak to their children.   What proof do any saint have to take sides?

And what Gospel is this that allows one to sin, lie, betray, hate, and do whatever you want to. This is the gospel of satan, false Apostles, deceitful workers, false prophets, false brethren, whom you know by the words they say and the deeds they do.

"Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit."
Matthew 12:33

"O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh." 
Matthew 12:34

"A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things."

Galatians 1:9

     Remember always it was the priests, scribes, and elders that was envious of Jesus Christ and persuaded the people to demand that he be crucified (killed).

     Only the word of God is right.   Heaven and earth shall pass away but the word of God shall stand eternally.   Apostles, prophets, teachers, preachers, elders, bishops, come and go, live and die, only the word of God stands.  Zechariah asked, "the prophets, do they live forever?"

"Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith the Lord of Hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the Lord." Zechariah 1:4

"Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever?" Zechariah 1:5

"Now the chief priests, and elders and all the council sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death." 
Matthew 26:59

"For he knew that for envy they had delivered him." 
Matthew 27:18

"When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him."

Matthew 27:20

"Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done."

"And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers."
Matthew 28:12

"Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept." 
Matthew 28:13

"And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you."
Matthew 28:14

"So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day."
Matthew 28:15

"Verily I say unto you, this generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled."
Matthew 24:34

"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away." Matthew 24:35

     No saint in the church is responsible for the bickering of Omega and Nehemiah, yet the saints are being falsely accused. Let the saints of God rise up and love one another, do good to those that despitefully use you, bless those that curse you, love those that hate you, love your enemies, pray for those that do you wrong and betray you, suffer the wrong that is done to you, but do no wrong.

"Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you." Luke 6:28

"Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbor, and hate thine enemy."
Matthew 6:43

"But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;"
Matthew 6:44

"Now therefore there is utterly a fault among you, because ye go to law one with another.  Why do ye not rather suffer yourselves to be defrauded?"
I Corinthians 6:7

     Pray for Prince Jonathan Shelton who God has given special purpose that he will gather the strength to stand up and lift up the true holy name of Jesus Christ and the legacy of Apostle Shelton and Apostle Johnson.

     Pray for Elder Marcus Shelton that he too will stand the storms of the devil to see the dawning of the victory light.

     Pray for Elder Nehemiah that he too will gather strength and continue to wait on the Lord; that God will grant us perfect harmony in his word; that they who have made errors will come to confess their faults for the sake of their own souls and the good name of the way of truth.

     Pray for Minister Asher that he will continue to bridle himself when there is falseness, but continue to remind the Saints of the way of truth for which he once did well.

     I do not speak concerning Omega, and Esau (formerly Ysaac)) for God shall shortly deal with them personally, alone by himself.  Pray for them, for the sake of their own souls.

     Pray for me, Apostle Dennis Smith, the messenger of God Almighty, that I be granted continual victory over all things and that the word of the Lord have free course and not be hindered by anyone.

     Pray for all the saints, some of whom God has called by their names in the Atlanta, Georgia church who will burn in eternal lake of fire if they repent not of the betrayals they have spoken and done.  I shall not write their names for they each know who they are!! Pray for all saints for Love sake and the sake of their souls.

     Pray for all others if there be they that are called others, that they too will find peace in Lord Jesus name and eternal salvation.

Despite of all these things you see the gates of hell shall not prevail against the church.

"And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
Matthew 16:18

     He that endureth unto the end shall be saved. The true saints of God shall hold on. Neither a man, angel from heaven, or demon from hell shall persuade us otherwise.

"But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved."
Matthew 24:13

     I certify to you that I am delivering the words of God, not the agenda of man.

"For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? For If I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ." 
Galatians 1:10

"But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man."
Galatians 1:11

"For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ."
Galatians 1:12

     I love you with the perfect love of Jesus Christ.

               Apostle Dennis G. Smith
