Satan Partners with fake Pastors

24 Mar
Jesus paid for our sins that we may live in eternity with Him!

“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.[1] A faith so strong that one stands firm defending it till death if needs be. All that truly matters is eternity in heaven.

“If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.” [2] God here speaks of deep conviction “faith,” that in all things God would truly be first position in your life. However what we see is a wide spread surrender by so many of their conviction, into the hands of a church and/or pastor who has become a ruler rather than a servant. This servant should be building up the flock so that each of the flock are able to stand with their own cross (commitment) and defend themselves against the wiles of the devil and evil. God in His word gives out the tools to identify truth for the purpose of survival and building of Faith. Anyone who falls short of this service as a pastor is a false prophet.

Going back to Eden before the fall we know that Eve out of an innocent heart bought into the devil’s promotion of the good looking fruit, then after the fall into sin at the birth of her firstborn, Eve shows her faith in the promise of God to send a savior that she declares, “I have gotten a man the Lord”.[3] (The KJV adds the word “From” which is not in the Greek. This is an example of how one word added or changed by someone does change the whole meaning of what God intended.) When you look at this glorious declaration of faith and how it is diminished with the added word, one realizes how subtitle the devils work is.

Right from the beginning of time satan the father of lies has distributed and manufactured continuous lies for the purpose of gaining company in hell. He told Eve the lie that eating the fruit would make the eater of it like gods[4] to “know good and evil”. This action sheds a light upon how satan calls God a liar, and through his followers promulgates lies disguising them as truth[5], especially in the last times[6].

God’s Creation in which we live has many facts of life that through the ages the Devil has picked away at to populate hell. We have talked about the promotion of self[7] being the biggest tool of satan. Truly the lie of promotion of self is that, in the minds of many, they are the final arbitrator of decision and you alone have the choice of what you believe.

The Pharisees’ religion, whose roots supposedly were grounded in Moses, became something of self promotion, declaring self to have the ability through works to gain heaven. God all through His Word holds out the truth of salvation that rips apart all the self righteous promotions of churches today. In Roman  4:6-8; “Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works, [7] Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered. [8] Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.” These are Beautiful Words of Truth that give a peace that passes all human understanding. “Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.”[8]

In the early Church after the resurrection and ascension of Jesus Christ, we find the mindset of sharing resources as a group and a focus being made to search the scriptures daily[9], making God’s Word the center of their life, making eternity the focus.

Through the next 2000 years we see more and more tearing down of God’s Truth through the teaching of lies.  We have multiple, so called, brands of Christianity today based upon one individual promoting his self and his mental prowess for interpretation of God’s Word. People have taken the studies of true Christians like Luther and made a false religion out by twisting his writings.

When you look at catholicism[10] and it’s evil roots and the historical evidence of attacking God’s Word, and instead of searching out truth, they were an overriding methodology for control and monetary gain.

Today we have more subtle promotions by so-called progressive pastors who remake God’s Word into an acquisition of worldly benefits, trying to promote a middle of the road to attract others away from the Truth. These “progressives” (satan’s helpers) who for money have stated that “just go somewhere it matters not where”; Show us where that is in the Scripture. God’s Word says quite the opposite.

God says, “to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?[11]  This parallels with, “Jesus said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”[12] And Again, “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.”[13]  And Again, “Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.”[14] Literally there are hundreds of similar references in God’s Word, the Bible, that imply the same mindset of, surrender to, being committed to, subject to, or submitting to, the authority of God and ALL His Truth. “to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?[15]

So by God’s Definition, His Son Jesus is described as: “the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,”[16] So a True relationship with God, Son and Holy Ghost is a oneness with your Bible, His Word. Thus we have that defined as we stated before.[17]

It is through the commitment given by God’s working in the hearts of men that a clear path to eternity is shown, called a commitment or surrender to God. God’s working in the heart is the door through which we walk and are able to discern the Truth that sets us Free and also the recognition of the lies of satan.

So try the spirits[18] is very pointed and the command from God to separate from those who teach a lie is crucial to our walk. Luke 6:22, “Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.” “I came not to bring peace but a sword”[19]

So some of the markers or red flags shown by the revealing from God, are the Pastor that places any publication of man on an equal basis with God’s Word and deeming it necessary, is a false Prophet.

Any pastor that casts a negative light on the atoning work of Jesus is a false prophet.

False Prophets promote false narrations or deny so many of God’s teaching. God Says you CAN NOT find good fruit on a thorn bush (Matthew 7:16-20) “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,”[20]

Here are some of the revealing Fruits to separate from: Identifying satan’s helpers

  • They present a different definition of the Gospel than eternal salvation through Jesus, they are false prophets.
  • They that would reinterpret the Bible leaving out parts of the quotes or alter in any way the Bible, are false prophets.
  • They that deny Biblical authority or inspiration, making the Bible out to be a history book rather than the authoritative Word of God.
  •  They make God’s Word out to be contradictory or not coherent, when God never contradicts in His Word and it takes submitting to His Truth to see the trail through the whole Word.
  • They deny our sin nature and roundly reject original sin, passed down to us from Adam and Eve.
  • They say that we were never separated from God through sin. 
  • They deny the deity of Jesus and promote a divine nature from within ourselves.
  • They often deny the resurrection or the virgin birth.
  • They deny the trinity, stating that God is the universe or that they are interrelated and that somehow God is dependent upon creation.  And they emphasize Jesus’ humanity.
  • They might teach there is more than men and women.
  • They have no belief in hell and say all are saved.
  • They promote that what one does as more important than what one believes.
  • The preaching of pluralism that all roads lead to god and heaven and that all religions share the same truth, and is another false doctrine

By reading the Word of God (The Bible) (the most exact version today is the KJV) one learns how to identify God’s Truth and the thorn bushes. There is no such thing as an acceptable little white lie. We seek to be grounded in Truth, God’s Truth, as herein is Freedom!

Love is speaking the Truth of the destruction ahead for those who do not walk in truth. Love has come to mean “getting along well”.  In other words keep quiet and watch others walking off a cliff to eternal death, rather than speaking up. And just as the Pharisees killed Jesus because he spoke the truth we see governments today trying to make God’s Word out to be hate speech.

1Timothy 6:3-5; “If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; [4] He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, [5] Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.”

Just as in the Garden of Eden, satan’s message is the same! “Yeah hath God said”[21] or today “that’s old fashioned” or “you need to give a little”. God says, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever”[22]

The devil’s message is one of “well, men have the ability to have sex without any consequences women want the same” so 63+ million babies are killed and millions more around the world. We can go on and on of all the distractions and lies in this world, but ultimately failure to recognize the divergent path that pulls us away from faith as a little child leads to the broad way to eternal fire.

The devil is always wanting to pull us into his fake reality away from the truth of salvation by drowning us in the cares of this world.[23]  “God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”[24] The Peace that healed the wound of sin.[25]

Stand Strong in the conviction of God’s eternal love and His sacrifice for us! And billions of years of joy await!!

Deep Down God Honoring Love

27 Feb

 

“Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.” Matthew 22:37-39

Also God shows us even further that love is about trust, “Except you have faith as a little child you can not enter into the kingdom of heaven”, this speaks about what we just quoted loving with all your heart, soul and mind. A surrender to truth.

Another revelation by God, of Love, is that relationship of a man and a woman in Marriage. God very explicitly speaks of the foundation of Marriage, going right back to the garden of Eden. God recognized that man needed a help meet.  “It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.” Genesis 2:18. God Created Woman.

God goes even further and describes in numerous places the relationship of a man and woman in marriage.

“For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?” Matthew 19:5;  “And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.” Mark 10:8;  The ultimate Love where two people act as and live as one. They communicate where they are going and what they are doing, there is no competition.

The worldly ones, governments and satan, would call this servitude and they promote feminism as liberation, but in truth there is nothing like two working in unison as one. Even the churches of today promote the lie of feminism as it is a money maker. And for their efforts they earn eternal fire.

God also explains the relationship as the man being the covering (protector) of the wife. Ephesians 5:22-33; “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. [23] For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and He is the saviour of the body. [24] But like as the church submits itself to Christ, so the wives to their own husbands in all things. [25] Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; [26] That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word, [27] That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish. [28] So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. [29] For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church: [30] For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones. [31] For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh. [32] This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church. [33] Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”

Colossians 3:18; “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord.”

Being as one is a preaching to the world. 1Peter 3:1; “wives, be in subjection to your own husbands; that, if any obey not the word, they also may without the word be won by the conversation of the wives; …. Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him lord: whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement.”

God explains that covering of a man in marriage even further, 1 Corinthians 14:34; “Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. [35] And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.”

God also recognizes women for their laboring in the Word of the Gospel, as we saw before by being good wives they are winning hearts for God but we see praise in Philippians 4:3; “And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellowlabourers, whose names are in the book of life.”

The example of the body where a nerve gets severed (there is a malfunction) same in a marriage. In Titus 2:3-15; … “teachers of good things…. To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. …. Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;” Just very sound instruction for all.

God’s Word is full of wisdom regarding all aspects of life and relationships. Throughout the ages the devil has used deceit to break down the stable advise of the Lord, and in today’s world governments have become the tool of evil in the promotion of corruption and division away from God’s Truth.

Beware of the lies and delve into God’s Word, Jesus. John 1:all; “…..And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us….”

Our prayer is that God is allowed to open the hearts of all!!

This only happens when we spend time in the Word!!

Heed God’s Knocking, not the father of lies

21 Feb

Many people do not realize it but satan bought the churches in America back in 1894 by putting into law the 501c3 tax exempt status. Oh it did not happen immediately but over time the Government established regulations that restricted what churches were able to say and do.

The lie of separation of church and state has grown to be a divider of peoples and families.

All one needs to do is read the Old Testament which is a history of the governments of the past. You see kings (governments) established places of worship (groves and altars) under the influence of unbelief to lead people away from God. Evil men influenced kings (governments) to establish lies in their kingdoms.

Today it is the same, evil men and seducers will wax worse[1] and worse, according to God. And we are seeing our government promoting lies about abortion (the killing of babies), tranyism, climate change, relationships[2] and lies about marriage, healthcare, and even what love is. Every aspect of truth is being attacked by satan’s tool, the government. Every circle of life has had or is having the safe places removed, just as God in his Word reveals.

On top of that satan has promoted lying and cheating and has enabled a huge buyout of our rights through the stealing of the election.

Add to this satan has promoted the prosperity gospel, that promulgates the lie of reward for showing up every Sunday or for good deeds. These false prophets leave out the parts of God’s word that show man is evil by nature. That greed and the seeking of pleasure is the fall of mankind.

What does God say about the flood and the end of the world, even Sodom and Gomorrah that was the root cause of their demise? But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be, For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark[3] Destruction happened and will happen when the focus is on the day to day pleasures of this world, and a turning away from God’s plan of eternity with Him.

Government is a facilitator of evil. God’s plan has always been to guide men to His goal of Heaven. This means tribulation is allowed to come into people’s lives when they get off the path and they are forced to look up to Him.

We pray for ALL that none come short of the glory of God! Eternity is real! Satan is real! We pray for humility and surrender of hearts or as God says the circumcision[4] or opening up of hearts, to let the full truth of His Mercy in!!

The Sanhedrin Complex

4 Jan

The preservation of His Word is amazing and God has left a clear path for us to identify His true Word. We are blessed in this day and age to have so much of God’s Word preserved. The study of tracking His Word through the ages was something that blessed my life, and the almost two years that I spent in that study was very rewarding.

The discovery of the depth of God’s truth and His plan for our lives eternal is uplifting, this is the Gospel message. This good news of the Gospel is taught right from Genesis through Revelations. That Gospel promise of a Savior is immediate and thorough.

There are one distinct message given to believers, Go into ALL the world and preach the (Good News) Gospel for a witness unto all nations[1]. “God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son”[2].  God in His Word expands on this simple message and man tries to make it more complex.

God also shows how He so loves the world, but He also recognizes the heart of man when He says “I came not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance”[3]. Yes He died for all, but many close their heart.

We also face the “yeah hath God said” syndrome by the various scholars claiming to make the Bible easier to understand.  (Triglot, confessionals, Book of Concord, & errant versions, etc)

A child of God is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not from men, but from God[4]. It is God that opens the heart and man can only turn away and prevent by his own promotion of self. Remember, “it is not of works lest any man should boast”[5].

Yet today most every organization called christian, pulls bits and pieces out of the Bible to create a trail they affirm to be there, they, as God thru Paul states, are those who hope to sooth itching ears[6], of those who want to find validation for their perverted lie of a focus on the things of this life.

Along with the Gospel (good News) God provides in His Word is a clear understanding of the heart of man. God also gives us the ability to identify false teaching. Right from Eden the devil has laid out the false doctrine before the fall. “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die:
[5] For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”[7] Today as well as all through history man has promoted himself as something of value with equal standing to God. In today’s world we see the devil’s teaching of the promotion of self to a godlike status. In the lives of so many their own brains are the final arbitrator of truth and instead of searching the Word daily as true believers (sinners) should.[8]  God’s Plan is so well laid out for all those looking.

2700 years after creation and 700 years after the promise to Abraham, God gave the law to Israel not only to show them that it was impossible to live a righteous life, but in His Word God shows us the fallacy of believing that we can live righteous life.

What do we see in the New Testament but the Jews puffed up and strutting their stuff, proclaiming their value as equal to God.  Over and over we see God, come in the flesh, tell His (now formally chosen) people, that they are following their father the devil[9]. God also gives so many examples of what humility looks like and how faith only exists in the form of humility as a little child.

 The heart of man is exposed repeatedly. ”Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God”[10]. The heart of man wants to insert a step for man to fulfill first to ready himself to be acceptable for salvation. The heart of man lies to us, always looking for and promoting self worth. This is the Sanhedrin Complex.

The Sanhedrin Complex today rears its ugly head in most every aspect of our life. Schools and our laws promote self worth telling our children they can be whatever they want, even to the point that they can chose to be a woman or a man.

But the promotion of self has been around since Eden, we have people with all manner of gifts who proclaim they are righteous because of the presence in their being of these gifts, things like tongues and healings prove their worth, rather than humility and faith.

The world is full of volumes of books written by men that are really promotions of self and are held up in seminaries and churches as being equal to the Bible. We see in the early church in the first century where Christians searched the scriptures daily to see if it was so.

The most troubling is the pitting of God’s Word against God’s Word.

Yes we put law in its place[11] God says, but to make the law or as some would rip out the ten commandments and make them the beginning point to shed the light on the gospel when God says the Law is written in their hearts[12], man knows where his trespasses are and has only the need for the Gospel.

 The gospel is the reminder of the plan God has for our futures, the reality of the future having been taken care of and the joys of not having any pain or weariness. The joys of not having the weight of survival crush our beings. The joys that await all of us with, “be not unbelieving but believing”.

The message of the Gospel is one of the circumcision of the heart or the opening up of the heart to hear the good news of eternity taken care of through salvation. This opening of the heart is not done by man but by God. Man can only prevent such an occurrence. Mankind blocks this from happening by focusing oneself and establishing himself as the final authority for decisions for their life. The Sanhedrin Complex is the shutting down of all reception to the whole Word of God and picking out one piece or part and making it their be all end all. The Sanhedrin we are told throughout the Gospel were the sons of the devil, they believed they were righteous and had no need of a savior. Jesus said, “I came not to call the righteous but sinners to repentance”[13].  Just as today where man declares himself righteous by his own deeds, the Sanhedrin of our Lord’s day picked out pieces of God’s Word to follow and bragged on their righteous life and gifts.

The other part of this complex is the placing of or having a focus on the things of this world, the pleasures of life are made out to be the most important. God says that hell comes to those who have lost focus on reality. In direct answer to the question when will the end be Jesus answers, in Matthew 24:37 “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. [38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, [39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”

Ephesians 2:8 “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
[9] Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

God’s Word, that was made flesh and dwelt among us, is full of wisdom and truth that sets us free.

Jesus comes as promised thru the lineage of David to fulfill the promise made in Eden of a Savior. Jesus is born into the lineage of his chosen people Israel, but His people reject Him. Why? They reject Him because they have lost site of the promise. Instead of coming to the altar knowing that they are sinners, they came to the altar with their chests thrown out and their hearts uncircumcised, touting that they were righteous for their deeds of coming to the altar, rather than hearing their dire need for a Savior.

God in His Mercy repeatedly points out the self righteousness of the Sanhedrine (scribes and Pharisees), for their benefit as well all future generations who read His Word.  All That Matters Is The Eternal

May God’s Peace be in your Heart

Approximately 2020 years ago the world witnessed the beginning of the fulfillment of the promise made 4000 years prior, the promise by the Lord God of sending a Savior into the world for the making of peace with the world (man) extended from God.

This birth of our Lord Jesus Christ was heralded by the angels and looked for by believers as the promise fulfilled. In Luke 2:14 the angels announce to the world the message of the gospel, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earthpeace, good will toward men.”

This message is deeply profound, the first words out of the mouths of the Angels, “Glory to God in the highest” of places heaven, of which earth is a part of the heavens and speaks to the blanket nature of God’s gift that extends to all mankind, a completeness that does not just apply to a few but to every soul. The Gift of a Savior that turns away God’s wrath, making for a universal peace in all of heaven and earth. And God’s action in bringing His Son into the world shows His good will toward all men. The Angels speak of a peace that has been won by the whole earth.

This pronouncement of the Gospel is today overshadowed by some who would make this message to pertain to only believers, but this message applies to the Lord sending His Savior to all mankind, not just those pleasing to Him.

The gospel message is throughout the Bible and the actions of man are displayed as man turns away after things of this world and showing hearts overcome by a praising of self and promoting self worth.

Oh Holy Night! What a message! We encourage you to spend time in His Word getting to know His heart and Glory, as herein lies eternal bliss for billions of years.

All That Matters Is The Eternal

Sobering Times, Eternity Awaits!

6 Dec

Very Sobering times we are facing in our world today. I received an email from a friend about the Corruption across the globe where government officials are being paid off to lockdown the world with this Covid lie.

When you think about this lie you can’t help but think back to scripture where in the history of the world from Adam to until the year of our Lord’s birth we are told how over and over His people turned from Him and were distracted by the things of this world. The most notable was the time of the flood.

In 2 Timothy 4:3 God tells us again about sometime in the future. In verse 1 he starts out with instructions for God’s true Pastors:  1) I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; [2] Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

The instruction, that is almost always over looked these days, is just that, “Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort”   did you get that! Reprove, rebuke, exhort. Most of the churches I hear of today are applying those words to make the collection plate full, when in fact God through Paul follows up with and names what things to reprove and rebuke in Verse 3 “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; [4] And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

Isn’t that what caused the end of the world known at the time of the flood Matthew 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark.

Nothing wrong with that, is what we hear today in so many churches, the woke church is all about finding self gratification in the gift of promised treasure. To work out their pleasure to have a good life.

But God says, You stay with me and follow after me and mark your journey toward eternal bliss and take your mind off the earthly pleasures, you will have enough, I will take care of you and supply your every need, Not promise you a flashy lifestyle, but take care of your needs.

God through Paul goes further in 2Tim4:5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

So I ask you, is not what we see happening today in our country and many places in the world a focus on living a flashy or fleshly lifestyle and forgetting about the importance of Eternity. God’s plan is all about turning the minds and hearts away from this life and from living for the pleasures of this world, and bringing our focus to the fulfilled promise of a billion years in Heaven.

The goal of all true Christians is to get others to turn to god’s word and learn. Also God instructs us in 2 Corinthians 13:5, Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.

God in His word very explicitly lays out the knowledge of who we are in very great detail. God’s Word reveals to us who we are with examples exposing the Israelite leaders for who they were and their twisting of the law into the promotion of self.

Luke 18:10-14 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
[11] The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.  [12] I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.  [13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.  [14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

We see the actions of these two carried out in everyday life today the pharisee that promotes his own self as the final arbiter of his self worth as being important and the sinner recognizing God is the Truth in his life and a complete surrender to God’s truth. Can’t you hear it, “Lord I go to church at least twice a week, I tithe into the collection plate, I celebrate all holydays.”  Anyone can do all these things and so many more, but it is meaningless without real faith. The pharisee did all these things just as the pharisees today, and they do have a conviction in their hearts but that conviction is in their self worth not in the humility of surrendering to God’s Word. Their conviction was so strong that they killed the Savior defending their conviction.

We are falsely taught today that we can choose whatever commitment we would like, to be a Christian at any level and classify ourselves as a Christian, but God defines a Christian as one who has faith as a little child. God says your commitment as a little child is equivalent to bearing your cross, which means defending your faith to the death. So what God is telling us is that if you don’t have that kind of commitment you can’t be His. It’s really very simple, you believe with all your being and you recognize God and His Word as the only authority in your life.

We pray for the many who by their life promote themselves as the final authority in their lives. We pray that they examine their hearts and truly surrender to God for therein is Life Eternal.

All That Matters Is The Eternal

God’s Guidance: Exposing Good & Evil!

16 Jun

When one is truly reborn in the spirit, the Word of God becomes the center point in one’s life. This center point places everything about our world and our walk in this journey to eternity at the forefront of our life, and the gift of discernment keeps us focused on what life is about! That Journey through this life on earth to a life in eternity with God. For a billion plus years!

In Eden we see that Adam and Eve had no knowledge of evil[1] only good, yet there was this curiosity that recognized that forbidden fruit on the tree in the middle of the Garden as being “pleasant to the eyes”. And in this recognition Eve was drawn by the Satan’s words, “Yeah hath God said”. This relationship or encounter is the first tell tale marker that enables us to discern truth. That drawing away from the truth of salvation is an attraction to a focus on satisfying a fleshly lusting. Which God in His word describes over and over, as part of our struggle, a struggle that the true servants of God will remind us and point us to God’s salvation which overcomes this fleshly struggle.

When we read and study the Word of God we can see how every relationship in our life stacks up to these words “Yeah has god said”. God through Peter in 2 peter (speaks clearly to identify the evil in) 2:18 “For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error. [19] While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.” We see God giving us yet another warning to guide us and to help us identify false prophets and teachings.

After the fall, we see the expansion of man’s thinking to be focused on this world to the exclusion of God and God’s plan of eternity.[2] The focus of a surrendering to the desires of the flesh, or as we say the “Good life.” So much so that the Lord gave up on man and caused a flood.

The progression of the focus on the “good Life” is laid out for us to see in the earlier days before the Birth of our Lord the Savior, Jesus Christ. The evil that comes from the hearts of men, unwilling to surrender to God and His Word. This unwillingness to Surrender to God is why we have so many religions that choose to call themselves Christian, and just as the attitude of self righteous Jews in the day of our Lord,[3] so we have today this bent on promotion of self and a good life here.

It is broadly published that, “God gave me a brain so that I could find my own way” and so many similar phrases that ultimately are about promoting self.  Some sort of shortcut that excludes God giving knowledge of our flesh and somehow giving each of us our own truth. This ultimately is a way to promote a good Life and still have some semblance of being a Christian. Just as Satan promoted in Eden.

All through history we see this promotion of self thinking ultimately being anti Christ or against Christ’s Gospel!

Our schools teach evolution because some guy used his brain to figure out something which is anti Christ. God shows the brilliance of His Creation when He let Adam name the living creatures[4], there was no grunting caveman ever.

We see individual verses of the Bible being taken out of context to promote a way of thinking that presents itself as truth when it leaves God and the goal of salvation out of the picture.

Starting back with the Jews who promoted their own false holiness by denying the real reason of the law in its pointing out their inability to live righteously so that they look to God’s Promise of a savior, and they falsely trusted in themselves.

God Proves that if you make yourselves a god by picking what you want rather than coming to Him and His Word for answers, with a heart that Surrenders to Him, you are lost.

God says that except you become as a little child[5] in your acceptance of Him you cannot enter into the kingdom of God!

[1] Genesis 2:25

[2] Genesis 6:1-6

[3] John 8:44

[4] Genesis 2:19, 20

[5] Matthew 18:4; 19:14

The Heavens Declare the Glory of God!

30 Mar

“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork”. This passage in Psalms 19:1.

As we read this and Genesis 1:14 and really all of scripture we come away with all the proofs of God’s power. Everywhere you look in creation whether up in the sky or beneath the surface of the earth or into the microscopic world of the makeup of our bodies’ cells and parts of cells. Everywhere we look shows us the power of God. And that nothing is by chance. The only evolving thing in our world is the growing deception of man’s minds in developing new ways to discredit God and to trick us into not believing that there is a God. That’s the devil working.

Through the ages man has thought it necessary to have outside proof of the depth of God’s power. In the beginning God created time and time can be tracked to very intricate levels in the universe. In Revelations 10:6 God tells us there will be time no longer. In 2 Peter 3:8 God says “one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day”. As a child of faith we realize that Christ was born only 2 days ago.

A little child in faith does not need reinforcement, God said it I believe. Yet there are those who possibly attempt to give us a secondary reason to believe God. An example: We know God created the universe He also created time, literally the combination of everything you look up into the sky and see, is a time piece. Those that study the heavens have been able to identify the movements of the bodies in heaven and discover the order and the built in time keeping mechanism.

I remember the story put out a few years back that there supposedly were these scientists who discovered that the clock of the universe was off by twenty-four hours and they had no explanation. (we know that part of the clock stopped because it is written in His Word) The answer at this event was brought by one scientist out his bible and showed Joshua 10:12 where the earth stood still for almost one day, and then in 2 Kings 20:10 God shows us how the Earth turned back 10 degrees which accounts for 40 minutes. Whether this story is true about the finding or not, who knows.

The result of this story brings out both sides if you search it out on the net with the deniers going through all sorts of antics to explain well maybe God lied and it was an eclipse, the stuff goes on and on. Never mind that in many ancient documents indicate the recording of a longer day in history about the time of Joshua. To a little child these bunny trails are not necessary.

The point is that, when you stray away from God’s Word, the bunny trails possibly lead to doubt and it is doubt that condemns, doubt is the opposite of faith, Romans 14:23.

Spending Time in God’s Word is the only cure for doubt. Finding pastors who focus on Heaven and not on creating a heaven on earth becomes a task that all of us must be wary about.

Eternity is real and Jesus paid the price of entry for us all! Only believe!

Onward Christian Soldiers

20 Feb

THE UNTOWARD GENERATION

The challenge to al of us in this day is to live for Christ. To live for Christ means to live for all that He stands for as a little child in our hearts. And that is discipleship.

When Jesus began His ministry, He collected disciples with the wonderful ultimate call, “Follow me.”  He called Peter, James, John” and many others. Jesus never stopped calling people. He always says, Follow me!”

DISCIPLESHIP

The saved are disciples. The ones who get to heaven are sheep, and the Savior is the Shepherd. Sheep who do not follow the Shepherd do not belong to the flock.

No one is saved apart from discipleship. No one is a Christian who is not a follower of Jesus. No one can be a disciple of Jesus unless something is done about himself.

God does something for a person. God’s hand lifts him right off the path of Satan and-sets him down on Jesus’ path. God’s heart of love washes him clean of sin in Jesus’ Blood, God’s creating power makes a totally new man of him. That man has been given faith in Christ! He is on the road to heaven! He is now a disciple of Jesus!

The very word disciple tells us all we need to know. The word disciple means “Follower of a teacher.” “Disciple of Jesus” means Follower of Jesus.

MASSES IN CHAOS

The mass malconception of religion also infects today’s world. People generally picture a disciple of Christ according to outward standards. If you have joined a church, they say, then you are following Christ. However, one does not follow Christ by the mere process of joining some organization. One follows Christ by personally following Christ.

Others put great stock in other outward things, such as confirmation rituals of the denominations” Yet, following Christ is not that a person (for example), shows a confirmation certificate and proves that he was confirmed. Once again, following Christ is personally following Christ.

You simply cannot substitute mere joining of a church or having a certificate of past achievement and accomplished rituals for following Christ. Following Christ still remains following Christ – personally and individually.

HEEDLESS YOUTH

I am sure that there are many folk who think they are alright because they have gone through what was necessary. They have gone to instruction classes. They have been confirmed. Or they have accomplished another prescribed course and have been received into communicant membership in some church or another.

OUTWARD ACTIVITY

They perhaps also attend the special group of the church and are avid supporters of its activities. Perhaps they have become very enthusiastic about some phase of the total program presented. They might be outstanding in the athletic program. Or they may have thrown themselves energetically into leading the rest of the group in the entertainment. They may have worked up a sweat. They may have sweat in church athletics. They may have sweat over plans for good entertainment for the others. The rest may praise them for their church work. We will agree that they have expended much energy in a church. But have they followed Christ? That yet remains the only vital question.

SELF-DECEPTION

How many deceive themselves by outward activity? How many such outstanding personalities are habitual in cursing and misusing the name of Jesus Christ? How many have used these church-connected activities for a diving board into a life of sexual looseness and immorality? How many are holy terrors at school and in their extra-curricular activities, and come to church-connected get-togethers either because the parents say “GO!” or because it makes up a little for the bad impression left the rest of the time?

BRASS TACKS

If a person got down to brass tacks, I wonder how much discipleship of Jesus there really is? I wonder how many people really are followers of Jesus, even though many have joined churches? I wonder how many folks in the world really follow Jesus, even though many are confirmed communicants or full-fledged members and engage in a number of church-connected activities?

TOWARD AND UNTOWARD

Peter preached to people to be saved from the “untoward generation” of his day. Acts 2:40. Today we must preach to people to be saved from the untoward generation of our day.

How apt is not the expression “untoward!” Untoward is the opposite of toward. If you are going toward something you are heading its way.

TOWARD

Let us pretend that I am showing you a movie. As the picture-show begins, Jesus is on the right side of a big place all by Himself. As the movie continues, we see a person begin to come into view on the left side. Now he walks across the big place. He walks toward Jesus. As the film proceeds we see that he finally comes to Jesus. This person represents a generation of people walking toward Jesus. We may call it a “toward generation” – or a “toward-Jesus generation.”

UNTOWARD

Let us now make the necessary technical adjustments and run the movie backwards. Now we see a person back up. He is now not going toward Jesus. He is “untoward.” He is backing away from Him while it looks a little as though he is going toward Him. But when we finish the film, Jesus is alone and the person has backed completely out of the picture. This person may be used to represent the untoward generation which Peter in his day warned people to be saved from.

FROZEN ACTION

The “untoward generation” creates a deceptive illusion of discipleship. Imagine that an “Untowarder” desires to justify himself to you. He shows you the backward movie. You protest that the person in the movie is really backing away from Jesus. Hearing this, the “Untowarder” quickly turns the motor switch off. Immediately the action is frozen. A single frame remains on the screen. Triumphantly, he displays a still picture of a man who appears to be walking to Jesus. “See,” says the “Untowarder” with a bland smile, “we are heading Jesus’ Way after  all, aren’t we?”

How will you answer? No matter how you answer, when he turns the motor on again, the motion will show a backward, untoward walk; not a forward, toward-Jesus walk.

OBSERVE ITS MOTION

The untoward generation appears to be headed toward the Lord, but when you observe it’s motion and direction it is always walking further and further away from Jesus.

Peter lived in a day of an untoward generation. Peter lived in a day of churchianity, not Christianity. He lived in a place where everybody was a member of the church that had the Bible of Jesus Christ.

UNTOWARD JESUS CHRIST

Jesus Christ was born into that generation. Jesus Christ grew up in that generation. Jesus Christ began His ministry in that generation.

At first the people listened to Him and He drew substantial crowds. But the leaders of the church of the Bible of Jesus began to back away even while they pretended to uphold the Bible that preached Jesus Christ. Soon the people followed these church leaders.

They were not a people walking across the wide area toward Christ. Rather they were like a backward movie of a people heading toward Christ. When they had backed completely off the screen, then Christ was alone. The untoward generation had completely untowarded itself. The dying Savior gasped on Calvary’s Tree!

THE UNTOWARD GENERATION

An untoward generation is made up of individuals who are churched and have church-connected activities. But they are persons who walk away from Jesus even while they try to make it appear that they are walking toward Jesus. As individuals, such people are not disciples or followers of Jesus. They are followers of their own selves and of the devil.

ONWARD FOR CHRIST

We are committed to such a preaching and teaching which makes followers or disciples of Jesus, not backer-uppers and unfollowers of Jesus.

BE COMMITTED TO CHRIST

Peter preached to his untoward generation at Pentecost. He reached a crowd of people who were committed to church organizations but not to Christ. He showed them the terrible sin that they had done by being a part of an untoward generation.  Though they pretended that their religion was to the Christ of the Bible, they ended killing the Christ of the Bible!

CHURCHIANITY

Surely, you will have to admit that people can fully oppose Christ and Christianity with Churchianity!

3000 on Pentecost Day heard Peter’s plea to “save yourselves from this untoward generation.” Acts 2:40. They uncommitted themselves to an organization and committed themselves to Christ, the only Savior.

Today, people also need to hear that plea. They need to hear, “save yourselves from this untoward generation.” They need to become uncommitted to church organizations and church-connected activities and to become fully and totally committed to Christ~

LIVING FOR CHRIST

They need to stop living for themselves, and they need to begin living for Christ. They need to stop living for outward church activities and they need to begin living for Christ. They need to stop living for church organizationalism and they need to begin living for Christ the Head of the Church.

IN HIS SERVICE

If you are followers of Jesus Christ, as I believe you are, then you have a job to do for Jesus. If you have given your life and your all to Christ and said with your heart, “Take my life and let it be, consecrated Lord to Thee,” then you are in the service of your Lord Jesus Christ.

Surely, you desire to be saved from this untoward generation! Surely, you desire that as many others as possible be saved from this untoward generation! Will you give your life to Him for this? Will you live for Jesus? I am sure your answer is, “Yes.”

SHARE

You do want a “toward generation” about you, don’t you? You do want someone else to share the glory with, don’t you? How shall we find friends who are a “toward generation?” Shall we not go to the untoward generation as Peter did and call them to Christ? Did not the Lord bless Peter’s call to turn to the Lord with 3000 souls?

But if you are cast into the same mold as the individuals of the untoward generation, what good will you be to yourself or to anyone else? If you do not really live for Christ you are an extinguished candle. You are salt that has no saltiness in it.

FOLLOW HIM!

As a new creature you can only want to do the Lord’s will. For He made you a new creature when He gave you faith. He made you unto good works. This is the work of God. This is the way He makes a disciple and a follower out of you.

Before you can rightly ask someone else to be a follower of Jesus, you need to be a follower of Jesus yourself.

If you want your friend to come to church and be turned to discipleship, why should they come if they have not seen anything more in your life than in the life of others about you?

WRONGSTERS

How can wrongsters with hateful attitudes call others to love?–The love of Jesus Christ? How can people committed to gossip and making others look bad call others to Christ who forgets and forgives all evil and makes others look clean? How can a flirtatious, sexy, naughty, unclean person call others to the God of purity and holiness? How can you live in sin and show Jesus to the people about you?

ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE

I challenge you! The Lord challenges you! Live for Jesus, who died for you that you might live. Only a dedicated person can reach other persons for Christ. May these words burn in your hearts! May the joy of the Holy Spirit enter into your heart.

THY WILL BE DONE

May you be a surrendered soul to Jesus who bought you with the price of His precious blood. Then your life will show it. Then your desires will express it. Then your will shall become more and more molded to His will. Then you shall in truth be able to say and pray, “Thy will be done.”

And I warrant you that when His will is done in you also that you shall be sharing the glorious good news of Jesus the Savior with others who have not as yet surrendered heart, soul, and body to Jesus who has bought them with His precious blood.

You are His army to fight that others may be unconditionally surrendered to Jesus the King!
